Game 5 in the World Series took an interesting turn last night after Houston Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole was flashed by two members of the crowd.
The duo exposed their chests as Cole was preparing to make a pitch, and to make matters worse, they were right in his eye-line.
According to fans in the stadium, the women were escorted from the stadium following the incident, but they certainly took their moment when they knew the cameras would be on them.
Cole made a slight delay in making a pitch which caused the batter to call for a timeout.
It’s unclear if Cole’s delay was caused by the women’s stunt, or from an unrelated matter, but it’s safe to say the clip of the ‘reveal’ has gone viral online.
Many fans online were speculating who had caused the delay, and now we know exactly who one of the culprits were, by her own admission.
Model Julia Rose, who is well known on the social media circuit with 2.8 million followers on Instagram, took to Twitter to respond.
After a fan video had captured the moment, she replied: “My lil nips made it #WorldSeries.”
Despite the distraction, the Astros went on to win the game, capturing a 3-2 series lead in the best-of-seven championship series.
It seems big sporting occasions are becoming a new outlet to gain attention on social media, as seen during Kinsey Wolanski’s streak during the 2019 Champions League final. Wolanski can now boast 3.2 millions followers on Instagram.
Houston Astros are back home ahead of Game 6 against the Washington Nationals, who knows whether another eye-catching crowd moment will happen again.
