Two women who flashed their breasts during Game 5 of the World Series on Sunday won't be at Game 6—or any other Major League Baseball games in the foreseeable future. Julia Rose and Lauren Summer were a few rows behind home plate at Nationals Park and appeared in Fox coverage when they lifted their shirts during the seventh inning, CNN reports. "You violated the fan code of conduct by exposing yourself during the seventh inning in order to promote a business," a letter to the women from MLB vice president of security and ballpark operations David Thomas states. "You were also part of a scheme in which you induced others to expose themselves to promote the business."

"You are hereby banned from all Major League Baseball stadiums and facilities, indefinitely," the letter from Thomas states. The two women flashed as Houston Astros pitcher Gerrit Cole was getting ready to pitch. He left the mound and play was briefly interrupted, though it's not clear whether it was related to the flashing. Rose is the CEO of X-rated online magazine "Shagmag" and Summer is a brand executive. Summer claimed Monday that the stunt was to raise awareness of breast cancer, report the New York Post. (At the same game, fans booed President Trump and chanted "Lock him up!")
