Keith Hernandez Caught on Hot Mic Saying Pitcher Has Been ‘Getting His Tits Lit’

Retired New York Mets great and current Sportsnet New York broadcaster Keith Hernandez fell victim to the dreaded hot mic on Monday.

In audio flagged by Deadspin (and shared via Awful Announcing), Hernandez and play-by-play announcer Gary Cohen are heard having a conversation in which they both clearly believed they were off the air. And Hernandez took the occasion to share his uncensored thoughts on Washington Nationals pitcher Tanner Roark after he was pulled from his team’s game on Monday in the third inning.

Only, Hernandez and Cohen were very much on the air.

“Roark’s been getting his tits lit,” Hernandez said.

“Yeah, he really has,” Cohen added for good measure.

It appears as though the duo did not acknowledge the slip up when they came back from commercial, but social media quickly caught it, and Deadspin promptly posted the clip.

Nice game, pretty boy.
