Major League Baseball unveiled their money gra- er, holiday and special occasion uniforms today. Take your first look at the Jackie Robinson Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, and Fourth of July threads that the Jays will be wearing this year.
First off, I love the Jackie Robinson patch that everybody’s going to be wearing. They didn’t go all out and just kept it to something tasteful on both the jersey and cap. Also, socks? Let’s honour Jackie even more by going high socks on April 15th. Yes, even the big guys.
The stuff for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day is pretty much what you’d expect, going with the traditional pink and blue caps.
Politics and sports don’t mix, but please give us your money for the sweet Memorial Day gear! Honestly, I’m not sure how fans are going to see anybody on the field with all this camo. Shoutout to the Royals and Angels for going with solid colours and avoiding that problem.
On the Fourth of July, the Blue Jays are going with their regular alternates, but with the Canadian and American flags on it.
Every year, the league makes the Blue Jays wear something special for the Fourth of July, and every year we complain about it, but this takes the cake:
What is this? Are we even Canada’s team if the maple leaf isn’t being forced upon us at every turn? If you’re going to force the Canadian team to wear something, at least make it look decent and not like one of those shitty gas station fitteds you see on sale for $10. But wait, there’s more!
Instead of getting “we the people” that looks like one of those “only God can judge me” tattoos, the Blue Jays get Canada written under their bill. MLB, this is bad and you should feel bad.
Is there anything here that you might get? I’m kind of digging the Jackie Robinson cap.
