MILWAUKEE, Wis. (WFRV) – People in attendance at Monday’s Milwaukee Brewer witnessed a come-from-behind victory on the field and a cringeworthy message off it.
Christian Yelich tweeted that when the dugout saw the message in the bottom of the 8th inning, the team decided to win one for ‘Mark’. What a way to rally, as rookie Garrett Mithcell hit his first career home run to tie the game at 5 in the 8th inning.
One inning later, Keston Hiura homered to win the game.
On the video board, there were multiple messages ranging from birthday wishes to good luck on a big race. However, there was one message that stood out.
The message on the video board read:
Mark – your friendship means the world to me – let’s not wreck itMessage sent in at Milwaukee Brewer Game
Even the Milwaukee Brewers themselves addressed it saying “Mark, we’ve all been there. If you need someone to talk to, we’re here for you.”
Both the team’s and Yelich’s posts are going viral, as Yelich’s tweet has over 53,000 likes and over 4,100 retweets. The Facebook post by the Brewers has over 350 shares, more than 2,700 engagements and over 120 comments.
