HOUSTON (AP/WTVO) — Three women who flashed their breasts from behind the backstop during Game 5 of the World Series have been banned from major league ballparks.
Major League Baseball sent the women a letter shortly after their escapade Sunday night.
“During the game, you violated the fan code of conduct by exposing yourself during the 7th inning, in order to promote a business. You were also part of a scheme in which you induced others to expose themselves to promote the business,” the letter read.
“You are hereby banned from all Major League Baseball stadiums and facilities, indefinitely,” the message continued.
Julia Rose and Lauren Summer identified themselves on social media. Popular on Instagram, they lifted their tops and exposed themselves as Houston Astros ace Gerrit Cole was set to pitch to Ryan Zimmerman of Washington in the seventh inning at Nationals Park.
The women were standing in the second row, slightly to the first base side behind the plate. Their stunt was seen live on Fox by a camera shooting from center field.
Cole stepped off the mound, but it’s unclear whether he saw the women.
Rose and Summer’s accomplice, Kayla Lauren, told TMZ that the women were taken to police headquarters before being released.
MLB says the ban from big league stadiums is indefinite.
“The fans who were involved in exposing themselves during Game 5 of the World Series violated the Nationals’ fan code of conduct. As a result, they were removed from the stadium and are suspended indefinitely from attending an MLB ballpark or facility,” MLB said.
The women told TMZ Sports they’re proud supporters of the “Free the Nipple” campaign and planned the stunt to raise awareness for breast cancer month…and to promote ShagMag, their own business.
