Cheating in baseball may not be confined to the playing field.
In a day and age when cameras are everywhere, cheating on your significant other has become increasingly difficult, as one baseball fan purportedly found out.
Sisters Delana and Brynn Hinson were taking in an Atlanta Braves game Wednesday when, they say, they noticed a woman in front of them, seated with her husband, sexting another man.
The pair quickly snapped pictures and scribbled a note to the husband to tell him of his wife’s alleged infidelity. They said he was grateful to them.
In the note to the husband, the pair said that he could find messages under a contact in his wife’s phone named “Nancy,” who was allegedly a man named Mark Allen, and that if the wife had deleted them he could contact Delana Hinson at the phone number she provided for the pictures.
She ended the note by saying, “Sorry, just thought you should know!”
Brynn Hinson also posted the pictures on Twitter with the caption “’When there’s a married couple in front of you but …. hoes ain’t loyal so me & @lanabaybee8 expose em! #Nancy #ormark,” where they have since gone viral.
According to what she wrote on Twitter, she learned the couple had been married for 29 years.
She said that as the husband left the game he gave them a thumbs-up sign, and messaged them about 30 minutes later asking for the pictures.
He thanked them, Delana Hinson told Metro.
“He was appreciated [sic] we told him. Probably not so much that it’s on the Internet, but we never thought it would blow up like this,” she said.
But they don’t know whether he has confronted his wife with her alleged infidelity.
“After I sent him the pictures, we didn’t talk,” Delana Hinson said. “I don’t think he’s confronted her yet.
“I want to ask him, but it’s not my place.”
The photos have sparked a debate on Twitter over whether the pair were right to interfere, with widely varying opinions.
Some people thought the sisters had done the right thing and said they would want someone to do the same for them. But there was also a backlash from those who thought the sisters should have minded their own business.
One user asked, “’When did it become acceptable to read someone else’s messages, then get involved in their business?”
“Not sure what’s worse. The wife’s cheating or their posting to SM to go viral. They could have young kids,” another wrote.
Some people even said it was a hoax, but Brynn Hinson debunked that by posting a video of the incident.
The situation brought to mind a similar incident at a Detroit Lions game last year, the Daily Mail reported at the time.
A man named ‘Lye’ has written about his experiences confronting a stranger at a Detroit Lions football game, after he claims he saw the man’s very pregnant girlfriend ‘romantically texting’ another man throughout the match.
At the end of the game, Lye handed the man a note revealing the alleged adulterous text messages, and later posted a picture of the note and the pair he claimed to be the couple to Facebook.
That incident also went viral online.

What do you think? If their story is true, were the pair right in exposing the woman as a “cheater” at any cost or were they completely out of line in reading her personal texts and interfering in a private relationship they knew nothing about?
