Braves, Nationals Twitter fight ends with Chipper Jones quitting Twitter

bryce harperDuring Wednesday night’s game between the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals, Bryce Harper hit a home run in the third inning that he briefly admired. After he briefly admired his homer, he went into a rather casual home run trot.

Meanwhile, everything that is transpiring is angering the Atlanta Braves. So when Harper stepped to the plate for his next at bat, Braves pitcher Julio Teheran hit Harper on the thigh with a 94 mph fast ball. Predictably, this angered both Harper and his teammates which led to both teams clearing their benches.

Everyone on the field eventually calmed down on the diamond, but that gave way to tensions beginning to flare on Twitter.

Things all started with the Braves’ Twitter account sending out this tweet:

From there, the battle was on.

Then, Brave great Chipper Jones entered the fray.

And then he decides to retire from Twitter.

Quite a festive night on and off the diamond.
