Tim McCarver: More home runs hit today because of climate change

FOX Sports baseball analyst Tim McCarver has a theory about why there are more home runs hit today than in previous years. He believes it is a result of climate change. He made his theory known on today’s broadcast of the Brewers/Cardinals game. An onslaught of criticism ensued.

Tim McCarver just blamed global warming (and thinner air) for an increased # of #MLB home runs in past 50 years #WTF?

Tim mccarver, a former catcher and now apparently a self-taught physicist, says balls fly more due to climate change – thinner air. Idiot.

Is Tim McCarver seriously putting out the theory that climate change is responsible for baseballs traveling further? #MLB

Tim McCarver blaming climate change on the increase in HRs isn't even the dumbest thing I've heard today.

Climate change has caused thinner air resulting in more home runs. That according to well known climate scientist . . . Tim McCarver?
