There’s something particularly authentic about Carl Pavano’s throwback look during the Indians-Twins game yesterday. The two teams were honoring the Negro Leagues, with the Indians sporting the 1946 Cleveland Buckeyes unis and the Twins wearing the 1909 St. Paul Gophers uniform. Ron Gardenhire was a little worried that the pullover-style tops might effect Pavano’s ritual of changing undershirts between every inning, but joked that he might end up wearing his to the airport because of the franchise’s collared shirt rule.
Something caught my eye during the Red Sox-Yankees game yesterday (Alex B. noted it in the comments as well). Robinson Cano’s jersey had the pink MLB logo on the back. This is the best shot I could find, but it definitely was pink. He wasn’t wearing it the day before. After poking around, I was able to find this shot of Marcus Thames in the dugout from Wednesday afternoon’s game. Just to confuse things even further, the Yankees were on the road this year during Mother’s Day. So, I’m a little perplexed.
For a good laugh, check out Tim Tebow’s new haircut.
