The Miami Marlins have had trouble getting people to come out to the ballpark this year. If there’s one thing that puts butts in seats, it’s twerking. Perhaps that explains this seemingly inexplicable photo from last night’s game against the Washington Nationals.

Yep, that’s a comely young lady twerking up against the fence while Stephen Strasburg warms up. The distracting behavior really paid off for the Marlins, as the young righthander was touched for seven earned runs in just three innings.
It remains to be seen if other teams will employ the effective methods learned from The Replacements going forward.
It sure seems like the proof is in the pudding.
