One of Major League Baseball's biggest names joined Twitter this week, but his first tweet was about soccer.
"@clint_dempsey @ussoccer just want to say congrats to you and the team on a great job and making the US proud" Tim Lincecum tweeted after the US National soccer team's 1-0 win against Italy. "So pumped for you guys."
The San Francisco Giants pitcher started his Twitter account Thursday under the username @TimLincecum.
Lincecum was a little late to the Twitter game, so it's no surprise his former Giants teammate, outfielder Cody Ross, wasn't sure it was really him.
"@IamCodyRoss What up buddy?" Lincecum replied. "Ya this is me...hit me up me soon, be great to catch up."
Assuming it really is Lincecum and not an agent, "Twitter just got a whole lot Freakier," as @MLB put it.
