The Worcester Bravehearts, a Collegiate Summer League team, are clearly excited to start a new season. Fans, on the other hand, were not thrilled with the way the team showed it on a billboard.

Now, for the uninitiated, the team actually has made this a “thing” for quite some time.

Per Boston Magazine: “’The clap,’ for those who don’t know, is a tradition for Bravehearts fans, who clap their hands over their heads whenever the home team scores, while the catchy and meme-friendly song ‘Shooting Stars’ by Bag Raiders plays through the stadium’s speakers.”



Despite the tradition involved, pretty much every fan who saw this billboard on the team’s Twitter feed had the same general reaction.
