Love it or hate it, the world of Twitter definitely provides an insight into the thoughts and feelings of athletes.
While some might shy away from the spotlight or the post-game interviews, hundreds of pros in every major sports league turn to the social media platform to express their views.
Last night, most of them were baseball players. With many of their season's (or careers) long since over, MLB stars of past and present watched in awe and envy as the St. Louis Cardinals broke the hearts of the Texas Rangers.
It was an improbable comeback to force a World Series Game 7. Here's how some of baseball's best reacted:
@BarryEnright54 (Arizona Diamondbacks, P)
Walk Pujols and put the Winning run on base? So much respect! Do you do the same? #WorldSeries
@JoeyBats19 (Jose Bautista - Toronto Blue Jays, OF)
Is this real life??? #omg#clutch
The Fall Classic at its absolute finest.
@RickyRo24 (Ricky Romero - Toronto Blue Jays, P)
Hands down one of the best games I've ever seen!!!! #WorldSeries #doordie
@Joba_62 (Joba Chamberlain - New York Yankees, P)
I've watched a lot of baseball games and this is def one of the best I've ever seen! #WorldSeries. America's FAVORITE Pastime
@mcuddy5 (Michael Cuddyer - Minnesota Twins, 1B/OF)
Twice, Texas 1 strike away from a champagne bath. Or ginger ale. Twice st Louis spoils it. #cantmakethisup
@MikeStanton27 (Florida Marlins, OF)
I know Rangers are suppose to be good to the environment, must be why they keep throwing bird seed out to the Cardinals & keeping them alive
@OzzieGuillen (Florida Marlins, Manager)
Just cause its not good played game doesn't mean it cant be exciting people
@JLEWFifty (Jensen Lewis - Cleveland Indians, P)
Are you kidding me?! David Freese now will have a street named after him in downtown STL.. #FallClassicHeroes
Ummmm, when is Freese's statue being built??? #wow #unreal #bestgameofhislife
@TheGarfoose (Dirk Hayhurst - Free Agent)
I was watching a movie with the wife via Netflix, what happened in the game--holy mother of god! DAMN YOU MARITAL OBLIGATIONS!!!!!
I watched the movie Buck, the guy the Horse Whisperer was based on. It was really good... .... I hate my life.
@bradziegler (Arizona Diamondbacks, P)
Think any of the Cardinals are thanking Prince Fielder right now? #HomeFieldAdvantage
@AdamRussell36 (Tampa Bay Rays, P)
Hope everyone realizes the magnitude of what just happened. An entire season and fighting thru the playoffs down to 1 strike. #neverover
