The Great American Ballpark

This hilarious scoreboard apology at Thursday’s Cincinnati Reds game is what rock bottom looks like

August 20, 2021

The Great American Ballpark, and many others like it across the nation, does a thing. For the right price, you can have messages displayed on the scoreboard and broadcast to the entire stadium. Normally these are birthday wishes or public service announcements, but on Thursday night something so much better led the lineup:

A desperate plea.

Prayers up for Tom. We don’t know what this man did, but he is clearly suffering. People who have other options—people who aren’t already at the end of their ropes—don’t post apologies to baseball stadium scoreboards. It just doesn't happen. We’re not going to say Tom deserves to talk to Caitlyn. We’re not even going to say we feel sorry for him. But we all could use a little forgiveness once in a while, and from the sounds of things, Tommy Boy here needs it like air to breathe.

Making matters even more glorious, is that Tom’s very public olive branch coincided with the one-year anniversary of the other greatest apology in Reds baseball history ...

Circle August 19th on your calendars, folks. We can’t wait to see what happens next year.
