  • Alec Bohm has been playing in Philadelphia for three seasons now.
  • During Monday night’s game against the Mets, Bohm was caught on camera saying he “f’n hates this place.”
  • It’s certainly a bold statement to make about America’s most notoriously difficult sports city.

Philadelphia Phillies’ third baseman Alec Bohm got himself into some hot water with his own fan base after he was caught on camera saying “I f–king hate this place.” Bohm made the comment after the Phillies crowd sarcastically cheered him for making a routine play at third base against the team’s rivals, the New York Mets.

Following the Phillies’ 5-4 comeback victory over the New York Mets on Monday night, Bohm issued an apology to fans of the team and the city:

“I said it. Do I mean it? No,” Bohm said. “It’s a frustrating night for me, obviously. Made a few mistakes in the field. Look, these people, these fans, they just want to win. You heard it, we come back, they’re great. I’m just sorry to them. I don’t mean that.”

While having a go at the fans is always a bold move — just look at what happened to Francisco Lindor, Javy Baez, and Kevin Pillar last season in New York City — doing so in Philadelphia, arguably the most notoriously prickly sports town in the country, is especially brave.

Last season in Philly, his second in the major leagues, Bohm hit for a .278 average with seven home runs and 47 RBIs. He better pick those numbers up or else I have a feeling the fans may turn on him even more. We wish you good fortune in the wars to come, Alec.
