You know, I keep hearing these haters complain that baseball is out of touch, too uptight, and too old school. And then baseball goes and does something like this, and totally redeems itself.
The Texas Rangers are the gold standard for ballpark promotions from top to bottom. The first blog ever posted on Barstool Baseball was when I shared with the world, the glorious Adrian Beltre bobblehead with a removable helmet so that you can pat his head. Look at what Jesus did. Look at what the Rangers did. And now, if you scoot on down to their Double-A affiliate, the Frisco RoughRiders, they’ve introduced Top Gun, Ghostbusters and Game Boy themed jerseys for the 2016 season.
I would’ve loved to have been in on that brainstorming session down at Dr. Pepper Ballpark, home of the Frisco RoughRiders. Guys, we’re going with THREE themed jerseys this year, and they all have to be 1980’s references. Go.
Ummmmm, Scarface, Thriller, Terminator, Mr. T, The Goonies, Alf, Hulk Hogan, Punky Brewster, Master of Puppets, Ric Flair, E.T., The Shining, Ultimate Warrior, The Wonder Years, Back In Black, Cheers, Madonna, Die Hard, RoboCop annnnnnnd Macho Man Randy Savage. Personally, I would love to wear a Ric Flair themed jersey if I were a minor league baseball player. Something to think about.
