The Red Sox show from out of left field is proud to announce the opening of the Baseball Twitter Hall of Fame on their latest episode.
Fitz, Jake, Liam, and special guest @doinkpatrol each inducted specific tweets, legendary posters, unforgettable moments, and Bob Nightengale-specific examples of each of the latter categories. It was hard to narrow it down to an inagural class, but this is the work we do for our listeners.
Some of the notable inductees:
The “Tungsten Arm” O’Doyle Tweet
every time I see an Angels highlight it's like "Mike Trout hit three homes runs and raised his average to .528 while Shohei Ohtani did something that hasn't been done since 'Tungsten Arm' O'Doyle of the 1921 Akron Groomsmen, as the Tigers defeated the Angels 8-3"— ℳatt (@matttomic) May 18, 2021
The “oh god yes” Tweet
JOE BUCK: Welcome to the top of the 47th— Justin Klugh (@justin_klugh) October 28, 2015
[Sun keeps getting bigger]
[World engulfed by flames]
BUCK: oh god yes
