Twitter reacts to the Kevin Kiermaier Vaseline story

Baseball might not get played today, but we’ll always have this story.

It all began innocently enough with a tweet from Marc Topkin expressing, with perhaps unspoken incredulity, Kevin Kiermaier’s plan to stay warm.

I’m not sure either Topkin or Kiermaier expected what would happen next, though this being the social media era, it was almost inevitable.

Baseball Twitter got ahold of the story and oh boy did they love it.

Even Micah Johnson got in on the discussion.

Alas, the man himself has said the Vaseline experiment wouldn’t happen today.

It was a brief whirlwind of Twitter at its finest: making fun of something that didn’t even happen. And now that the game is in a weather delay, at least we have these tweets to amuse ourselves with.
