MLB: Stephen Colbert does his best to apologize to Milwaukee and is booed

There is nothing like that Milwaukee hospitality. Last year, after the Democratic National Convention moved from Cream city to a virtual stage, the comedian Stephen Colbert and his team on “The Late Show” created a virtual reality experience that highlighted the peculiarities of the city for those who would miss it.

The experience included some perceived Milwaukee hobbies, like drinking craft beer and eating hot dogs at a Miller Park hatchback. However, not many took the joke lightly, and soon after, Colbert apologized to the city:

The Brewers took notice and invited Colbert to Miller Park once the fans returned to the stadium. A year later, Colbert finally made it to a game at the stadium that is now called American Family FieldBut fans didn’t forget what he had to say about his city, booing him while offering another apology.

Brewers starter Brett Anderson could have done it without the bite. He stood on the mound with one hand on his hip after his warm-ups during Colbert’s monologue after the fourth inning. When play finally resumed after a delay, Anderson gave up two runs.

Colbert even prepared for the famous sausage race to try and win back the hearts of those who made fun of him. He was wearing the Hot Dog costume and finished last.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
