Cincinnati Reds bat Nick Castellanos has a habit of hitting home runs at the worst possible time.
The Castellanos jokes started when he did a homerun while ex-Reds broadcaster Thom Brennaman apologized for using homophobic comments in the air.
It all started when Thom Brennaman was caught on a hot microphone saying an insult before a game. Then in the middle of his apology, Castellanos homeredpic.twitter.com/WaWBJMFbXB

Since then, a Castellanos home run has often served as a baseball moment to precede unfortunate events. It is therefore not surprising that Castellanos put down a home run for the 20th anniversary of September 11th.
This was by no means intended to commemorate MLB’s attempt to commemorate the victims of September 11th and all families affected by these tragic events. On this very day, however, one cannot help but point out the irony of the Castellanos home run.
Reds: Nick Castellanos strikes again, this time on September 11th
Castellanos scored his 28th home run of the season for a Reds team battling for playoff lives as they are currently tied with the San Diego Padres for second wild card spot in the National League.
Social media had some fun after his last thing at Castellanos’ expense.
The home run was too deep left making it a 4-0 ball game, just like in Brennaman’s infamous clip.
Guys, please, don’t joke Castellanos on a day like today. They are incredibly inadequate as we remember 9/11 with Castellanos going into deep left field and that will be a home run. And that makes it a 4-0 ball game.

All of you who joke about this on a day like today really need to think. It’s just not right and there is a drive into the deep left field of Castellanos and that is going to be a home run https://t.co/39OVMeYHh1

I just realized something:
When JFK was murdered, he moved back and to the left.
That would mean there was a shooter on the Grassy Knoll.
The Grassy Knoll would have been in left field if JFK was home plate.
Nick Castellanos was Grassy Knoll’s shooter.

Castellanos Homer to left midfield on September 11 to make it a 4-0 ball game is the only evidence in the world that you need to know we are living in a simulation

Castellanos certainly doesn’t intend to hit home runs at awkward moments, but it’s inevitable at this point. It’s just who he is and there’s no going back.
