Time to get geared up

March 22, 2012

Opening day is exactly two weeks from today.  If you factor in shipping time for purchases at the MLB shop it is time to get your butt in gear and decide what you are going to wear to the park!   But PCB, you might say, isn’t picking out clothes kinda for girls? Pshh, have you seen Project Runway? There are a ton of guys on there.

I put the question of “what to wear” to Chris Iott at Mlive and his only suggestion was, “Clothes, please”. He says that like someone who has seen people chose an alternative. Huh.

So what options do we have? Well, if you are over 75 you are going to wear blue dress pants, a long sleeve plaid shirt, a cardigan sweater and an ancient baseball cap even if it is 80 degrees out.

Another popular choice to rock the jersey of their favorite player.  This is sound but uncreative decision.  9 out of 10 jerseys are going to be Verlander, Cabrera, or Inge.  Yawn.  Sure, you may have to pay the long dollar for something custom, but here are better choices.

This is the jersey of bullpen catcher Scott Pickens.  If you don’t know who that is you are obviously unworthy to wear the jersey. Showing up in this on opening day is showing the crowd that you know what’s up. Plus, people might actually think you are Scott Pickens and ask for your autograph. NICE!

This is another very solid choice. Paying $100 for an intentionally misspelled jersey of a player who is super streaky shows that you have the chops to be a superfan.

All of these choices pale in comparison to this beauty.

Jason Beck, among his other reknowned feats, is known for spotting obscure jerseys among the throngs of unwashed masses.  Show up in this bad boy and you are certain to get an epic tweet out of ol’ @beckjason.  That’s worth $100, right!? Darn right it is.

"Yes it is"

Up to this point I’ve totally left out the fairer sex.  How can women dress that suggests they are serious fans but also shows off the curvature of their sweater monsters? MLB itself has some suggestions for you.  Are you a big fan of David Chadd? How about this one?

Or maybe blue and orange clash with your season.  Here is a random pink shirt with a D slapped on it.

New to the game? This shirt comes with some rules written right on it! Nice!

Of course no female fan would be caught dead at Comerica without these on:

Don’t knock it people, Lloyd swears by these.

Let’s take MLB’s suggestions a little farther shall we? You ladies could always rock this:

Or this


My outfit is already predetermined.  I’ll confess, it is pretty cool to wear white pants without being gay, a European golfer, or both.

See you at the ball park! I’ll be wearing number 40.

    Just another classic from the funniest one inning wonder. Keep up the good work.

    I was hoping there’d be a slump buster shirt listed.
