Major League Baseball banned two models from all MLB stadiums indefinitely after they attended Game 5 of the World Series at Nationals Park and flashed their breasts on Fox’s telecast.

One of the women, Julia Rose, shared on social media a letter written and signed by David Thomas, the vice president of security and ballpark operations.

“On October 27, 2019, you attended World Series Game 5 at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.,” the letter read. “During the game, you violated the fan code of conduct by exposing yourself during the seventh inning in order to promote a business. You were also part of a scheme in which you induced others to expose themselves to promote the business. You are hereby banned from all Major League Baseball stadiums and facilities, indefinitely.”

Rose and Summer supposedly were in Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole’s line of sight. They were escorted out of the ballpark soon after the stunt.

There are mixed messages about the women’s motives. Rose’s companion, Laura Summer, reportedly wrote in an Instagram story that she “had to do it for the Internet.” She added something about raising awareness for breast cancer.

But sports business reporter Darren Rovell tweeted that they were looking for publicity to promote Rose’s digital magazine called Shagmag, which contains nudity.
