Atlanta Braves fans are furious with TBS, as broadcaster Ron Darling appeared to have celebrated the game-tying Cody Bellinger home run.
It was a wild night in Los Angeles, with the Dodgers coming from behind to steal Game 3 away from the Atlanta Braves. The fans in the stands were going insane, but so was a member of the TBS broadcast team?
That’s what it looks like and the Atlanta supporters are beyond irate. Right when Cody Bellinger blasted his game-tying three-run dinger in the bottom of the eighth inning, it sure sounds like commentator Ron Darling shouts out in fired up fashion. You be the judge.
It sure sounds like Ron Darling was celebrating Cody Bellinger’s monster home run
In the video above, you can clearly hear a loud ‘yes’ and it really does sound like Darling. As soon as this went down, angry Braves supporters made their way to social media to blast the former New York Mets World Series winner for his behavior. When it comes to covering a game or sports team, you simply can’t root for a side like this.
With millions of baseball fans tuning in live for the NLCS, those watching are expecting unbiased reporting and journalism. The absolute last thing anyone in Atlanta wanted to hear after Bellinger’s dinger broke their hearts was someone on the broadcast making things worse like this.
Following the incident, people have said they’re done listening to TBS and they’re either going to watch the game without sound or mute their TVs and find different audio. If Darling indeed celebrated that Dinger blast like this, he’d be wise to fire off an apology, while also making sure he doesn’t do anything like this again. It’s simply unacceptable.
