Keith Hernandez makes completely inappropriate comment for Memorial Day
On a day that Major League Baseball does nearly universally right, New York Mets broadcaster Keith Hernandez raised eyebrows with an ill-timed at best, and insulting at worst comment with regard to a broken bat. During the bottom of the first inning at Citi Field in Flushing, Hernandez referenced a broken bat from David Murphy as a “dead soldier”. Really? On Memorial Day? Watch (courtesy of Telly.com):
I honestly think it was a brain cramp by the former NL MVP, batting champ, and 5-time All Star. It’s a common phrase, used all the time. But way out of place on Memorial Day, and all those who lost loved ones in wars of today and the past are due an apology.
