Apparently the Phillies use Hooters girls to guard foul lines during their spring training games in Clearwater, Fla., so Monday’s exhibition against the Tigers was no exception. In the 7th inning of the game, a grounder was hit to left field and the poor lass missed it, letting it go five hole. Clearly she was overmatched out there, but I don’t think most fans are complaining.
If you’re wondering why they have Hooters girls working the lines, outside of the obvious reasons, apparently the original Hooters, which opened in 1983, is only a mile and a half from the park. Hey, that’s synergy. Oh, and apparently Phillies fans were booing.
