A wife of a Philadelphia Phillies player has established herself as a fan favorite with a gesture meant to reward fans cheering on her husband in the World Series.
According to the New York Post, Jayme Hoskins is the wife of Phillies first baseman Rhys Hoskins.
The baseball wife bought 50 beers for fans in attendance to cheer on her husband at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia ahead of Game 3 of the World Series on Tuesday, and then provided fans with 100 beers for Game 4 on Wednesday.
Hoskins alluded to the gesture on her personal Twitter account before the game, describing it as a baseball tradition.

A generic beer on tap at a Major League Baseball game doesn’t usually come cheap, and it’s likely the pre-game gift would have burned a hole in Jayme Hoskin’s wallet.

Unfortunately for the Hoskins family, the free beers may not have proven to be a karmic measure to secure a World Series win.
The Phillies lost in a historic World Series no-hitter on Wednesday, and their batting prospects didn’t get much better in the next contest.
According to ESPN, the Astros held the Phillies in two runs in a 3-2 win Thursday.

The win took the Astros a win away from a World Series title with two games remaining at Houston’s Minute Maid Park.
Rhys Hoskins has a dismal .169 batting average in the 2022 postseason despite hitting six homers.
As frustrated as a fan of gamers can be, they can’t get upset over a free beer.
Either way, even if the Phillies blow this World Series in Houston, Hoskins will have won the hearts of her husband’s fans with a pregame gesture that won’t soon be forgotten.
