As the ACC Baseball Tournament has played out this weekend at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in Durham, NC, it’s produced plenty of drama for the teams involved hoping to advance to the NCAA Tournament.
But the venue hasn’t necessarily captured the imagination of everyone watching. Luke Bowanko, center for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Virginia alumnus was watching the tournament and didn’t seem to like the venue.
Bowanko decided to express his opinion about the park on the place where everyone seems to express an opinion, Twitter. And with Twitter being a public platform, it didn’t take long to get a response. In fact, that response came from the Durham Bulls themselves and it seems that the team won this battle:

Bowanko tried to provide a hot take by calling the park “little league,” but the Bulls hit back by pulling the postseason card. And when Bowanko tried some misdirection by pulling “Major League Twitter,” the Bulls account swatted back with the Jaguars’ lack of wins card. That pretty much was game, set and match.
So the moral of the story is not to engage in a snarky Twitter fight at least if you’re Luke Bowanko.
