Bally Sports Midwest analyst and former Major League Baseball player Jim Edmonds laughed during Tuesday night's St. Louis Cardinals-Washington Nationals broadcast as he talked about a Little League pitcher or coach being on "suicide watch" after the pitcher was removed from a game, eliciting reactions on Twitter about his remark.
"I got a text message from (Edmonds' son) Landon's coach," Edmonds said on the air. "Said because of that game he took the kid out, he's on suicide watch. Now there's two of them. He takes it hard. I like it. ... People like to win."

A St. Louis news anchor was among those reacting on social media:
Edmonds has been part of the Cardinals' broadcast crew for Fox Sports Midwest and now Bally Sports Midwest since 2013. He played for the Angels from 1993 to 1999, the Cardinals from 2000 to 2007 and he finished his big-league career at age 40 for the Reds in Cincinnati during the 2010 season.
