You don’t get to mess with a “baseball fan” or else be ready to get hit out of the ballpark. As the title suggests, if you think girls can’t be a baseball fan then you are terribly wrong.
Diani Shi of Mashable India writes about a ‘baseball loving girl’ who has a ‘knack for puns’. The girl in her article happens to be a New York based blogger named Megan Brown who even shares her love for baseball in the Twitter Bio. “Awkward as bartolo at bat but not nearly as sexy. sports + digital. Hoosier at heart,” reads her account.
Diana writes about Brown as she “documents her interesting text exchange with a suitor.”
Brown posts on her micro-blogging site, “It’s so insulting when dudes try to quiz me about sports soooo i had a little pun fun.”

Upproxx soon picks up the issue in their blog and writes about the 28-year-old baseball fan “who has had to deal with this issue too often.” The blog states that she has been writing about sports for years. But, she feels it is time to give it back to the ones who tries to insult her. The comment reads, “She decided to recently combat the insulting practice with a hilarious, pun-filled response to a guy she had recently began texting with.”
Soon the tweet goes viral with more than 4,000 retweets and nearly 10,000 favourites in just over 24 hours, notes Upproxx.
The writer of the blog also reaches out to Megan for her comment. Her response states, “When meeting or dating guys it’s common for them to attempt to quiz women to test if they ‘really’ are sports fans. This guy was someone I met off of a dating app, we had started texting & he asked me that question.
“It seemed pretty condescending plus it was something SO basic it was kind of insulting. Instead of responding with the teams (first instinct) or ignoring, I decided to have a little fun. I love baseball & I love puns, so at the very least I knew I would make myself laugh. He STILL hasn’t responded. That said I don’t know if I would either at this point.”
Megan, indeed, hits the ball out of the park. Thats a “HOME RUN”.
