I Hate This Place:
Phillies third baseman Alec Bohm said he let his emotions get the best of him when he dropped an F-bomb in Philadelphia’s 5-4 comeback win against the Mets on Monday.
After the game, Bohm apologized for being caught on camera saying “I f—king hate this place” to Phillips teammate Didi Gregorius, apparently referring to Philadelphia.
Bohm appeared dismayed after hearing sarcastic cheer from fans at Citizens Bank Park when he made a routine play on third place on top of second. After taunting he made two throwing errors.
His second error in the second innings was on a regular basis that he threw first baseman Rhys Hoskins and threw into the wrong field.
Bohm’s third error was a throw that took Hoskins out of the bag. Bohm’s struggles came as he was fighting for a third base job on rookie Bryson Stott.
Bohm, 25, was selected by the Phillies from Wichita State University with the third pick in the 2018 draft and was considered one of the jewels of the Phillies farm system before moving to the big leagues.
Bohm had a nightmare night at third base for the Phillies. He made three mistakes in throwing.
He also made five successful plays on the field but the Citizens Bank Park crowd of 22,317 could not get past the errors.
So when Bohm made one of those successful plays in the second inning, he was greeted with mock cheers. It didn’t sit well with him. Television cameras caught Bohm looking at shortstop Didi Gregorius and saying, “I hate this place.”
A day after he was caught on camera saying derogatory things about the city, Philadelphia Phillies fans showed Alec Bohm the true meaning of “City of Brotherly Love”.
Bohm had a disastrous game in the field on Monday. When he was booed after his third error of the game, he was caught on camera saying “I hate this place.”
After the game, Bohm admitted, saying that it was a momentary comment and not his true feelings and – most importantly – apologized.
