Today we ran a story about Tyler Dunnington, the gay former Minor Leaguer for the St. Louis Cardinals who quit baseball because of the homophobia he witnessed. The Cardinals organization says it is concerned about what Dunnington experienced, but some fans have a different attitude: Good riddance.
The Twitter feed Baseball's Best Fans St. Louis has captured the best, or should we say worst, on the reaction from some fans.

#TylerDunnington you don't matter. Quit making excuses for YOUR failures.— Greg G (@gg122862) March 16, 2016
Well he shouldn't be killed. But. He should have seperate locker rooms https://t.co/cnhLZ5dfqO— Nekoda (@NJC055) March 16, 2016
The good news is that there was pushback to many of these comments. The bad news is that these people still exist. "Baseball's Best Fans" sounds ironic today.
