Instagram Models Banned From Major League Baseball After Flashing During World Series
With the series tied at 2-2, the Houston Astros and Washington Nationals were battling/batting it out at the bottom of the seventh inning at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., USA.
But as Houston Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole stepped up to throw, cameras caught two women behind the batter flashing their boobs.
The flashing did not go unnoticed by viewers across the globe and model and magazine editor, Julia Rose, admitted on Twitter that one of the pairs of unexpected baseball boobs belonged to her.

In one tweet, she said 'my lil nips made it' and in another, she said 'Whoops. The wind blew my top up'.
However, it seems Major League Baseball vice president David Thomas didn't see the funny side.
In a letter addressed to Rose, which she posted on Twitter, he said: "On October 27, 2019, you attended World Series Game 5 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.
"During the game, you violated the fan code of conduct by exposing yourself during the 7th inning, in order to promote a business. You were also part of a scheme in which you induced others to expose themselves to promote the business.
"You are hereby banned from all Major League Baseball stadiums and facilities, indefinitely."
The business mentioned by Mr Thomas is Shagmag, Ms Rose's digital magazine. The name of the mag was emblazoned across the lifted t-shirts of Rose and her co-conspirators, Kayla Lauren and Lauren Summer.
Ms Summer posted an almost identical letter from Mr Thomas on her Twitter while Ms Lauren went one further, sharing a selfie she claims she took in police toilets. Ms Summer wrote on Twitter that the stunt was to raise awareness for breast cancer.

Many people on social media have questioned whether the letters from the MLB are legitimate, given how quickly they were seemingly received. The fact the models are patently no strangers to a publicity stunt probably added to the scepticism too.
However, sports business reporter for The Action Network, Darren Rovell, believes such cynics are giving the models too much credit, claiming swift responses to code of conduct breaches are the norm.
You are giving her way too much credit. And to think she knew David Thomas is the guy who writes these letters? Pro sports leagues do this swiftly all the time and on the spot.

LADbible has contacted the MLB for comment.
