Paul Severino, Miami’s tv participate in-by-participate in announcer, explained, through Twitter: “I’m totally disgusted at the language that was picked up by the mics late in the game now. The level of dislike that was displayed has no area in this planet. Regretably, it is continue to significantly much too commonplace. We need to be much better. And shortly. Awful.”

The Rockies explained in a statement Sunday night time that they have been investigating the incident.
