DETROIT (AP) — Twins broadcaster Bert Blyleven apologized on the air and on Twitter for calling the skyline and city of Detroit “ugly” on the social-media network during the rain delay.

The Twins and FOX Sports North issued a joint statement saying they were “disappointed” in the tweets, which even caught the attention of Michigan governor Rick Snyder.

Snyder tweeted a picture of the Tigers’ AL Central championship banner with the comment “I think our view of downtown Detroit looks just great, @BertBlyleven28!”
