Please welcome Isabelle Pouchet. Also joining us from some other rooms is Katie Chrysanthou. You can read about their experience in a recent feature. Today, they’re bringing you details about a secret that’s thrown the world of professional baseball into chaos, and how it all happened.

How Did It Happen?

The tweet was originally directed at the New York Mets, but quickly went viral. Players were not happy that the group message left such an important moment in the team’s history in the sort of checkered past where it had never been seen before: a mistranslation of a group text message. When Laura Hurded initially read the text, she and Cat Spath, the wife of pitcher Noah Spath, had an immediate reaction. “It’s so inappropriate,” Spath said. “We felt like we had stumbled on something that was never supposed to happen, and we were just like, ‘Oh, my God.’”

Pouchet sent a message to her 3,000 followers on Sept. 11, confirming that the group text had been mistranslated and emphasizing, she said, that this would not be a family affair. Pouchet’s messages were quickly shared with the players, who did not like the idea of “a bunch of New Yorkers,” as she put it, humiliating the team.
