When Live Love Gameday tweeted out a photo of the shirt, Twitter users immediately blasted them, some calling the company "pathetic."
"I am rare, but not bc I love baseball. This is terrible," Twitter user @swirlywand wrote. "This shirt is really offensive to those of us who live baseball, and don't need to be "wife'd up," @PantherAlyxx wrote.
"After you 'wife her up' will you let her watch baseball from the kitchen?" @Kschwenky wrote.
Apparently, the company didn't appreciate the tweets, so they blocked some of the Twitter users who were criticizing them.
"WOW, I got blocked. MY very very first Twitter blocking," @escarole wrote.
"wow & your social media policy is "block everyone who points out how ridiculous this shirt is? Okie dokie.," Alicia Strauch wrote.

"Thanks to the 100's of people on Twitter who commented and shared for us!"
