I know they love their football down in Texas, but apparently baseball isn’t too far behind.
Check out what the crowd at Texas A&M did to an opposing pitcher after he issued a four-pitch walk to a batter in the top of the third inning in a game that Texas A&M was already winning by three runs:
It’s not as though that was a high leverage moment (top of the third, Texas A&M is up by three), but the home crowd fans are all over this poor guy. That would rattle me to my core. I genuinely feel for him.
He even tried throwing over to first a couple times, perhaps to stall/get some boos/get the crowd to settle down, but he had to make a pitch eventually, and when he did, it was three straight balls. I was pulling for a strike so badly on that last pitch. He eventually threw a strike and the crowd erupted in cheering (which was … nice, I think?). But wow. What an intense moment.
