Nick Castellanos is trending on Twitter. The are a lot odd tweets about Phillies Nick Castellanos and England’s Queen Elizabeth.
On Thursday afternoon, Queen Elizabeth II passed away at the age of 96. Now, Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Nick Castellanos started trending.
I looked into why this is happening and this what I found out. Castellanos is best known for hitting home runs in times of great emotional distress. It all began with a drive to deep left as longtime Reds commentator Thom Brennamen issued an on-air apology after a hot mic captured him saying a homophobic slur. The following season, Castellanos hit another bomb as the Kansas City Royals eulogized World War II veteran George Gorman, the father of one of their veteran equipment managers. Finally, this spring he launched a final obit into orbit in the middle of a Memorial Day military remembrance at Citizens Bank Park, cementing himself as humanity’s foremost hitter of problematically timed home runs.
Here are some of the Tweets:
