On Monday night, Philadelphia Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm made some viral comments during the team’s game against the New York Mets. After struggling with field errors, Bohm was caught on camera saying “I hate this place” after being sarcastically cheered by Phillies fans after knocking out Starling Marte first. Bohm admitted to making these comments during a post-game interview, saying that his feelings were overwhelming and that he didn’t mean it.
During Tuesday night’s game against the Mets, Bohm stepped into the batter’s box at the end of the eighth inning and received a standing ovation from those in attendance at Citizens Bank Park.

The Phillies lost Tuesday’s game 2-0 to the Mets.
