'Girls who love baseball are rare': Sexist shirt causes a stir on the Internet

Apparently, it's "rare" to be both female and like baseball — or so, that's how one clothing brand is positioning it.

The sports apparel company, Live Love Gameday, is under fire for selling a shirt that reads, "Girls who love baseball are rare. Wife 'em up."

The Dallas-based retailer is getting a lot of heat for implying that only men like watching baseball, especially when that has been proven statistically untrue; and, furthermore, making the statement that a woman would love the sport only to be proven worthy of being "wife'd up".

But as SBNation points out, women have increasingly become a part of the fan experience, growing to represent roughly 45-47 percent of those in attendance at games.

The shirt design didn't sit well with Twitter users, most expressing that women who love sports aren't rare at all.

Others are saying that it's "offensive" and have little knowledge about being "wife'd up" in the first place — or the term's association with baseball, for that matter.

It's clear this shirt struck out with a large majority of fans.
