You don’t need to possess a Trout-level meteorological know-how to conclude that a handful of Major League Baseball games were played in sub-optimal temperatures. In Tuesday’s Astros-Yankees contest, the teams battled in 39 degree cold in the Bronx, and ice had to be removed from the field prior to the afternoon start.
Lost in the chilly drama but thankfully uncovered by our watchful fashionistas was a stellar ensemble worn by New York Yankees second baseman Starlin Castro. Castro kept warm in style, as a Nike undershirt and New York Yankees officially-licensed balaclava (which is on sale at the Yankees’ team store for a paltry $478.99) expertly complimented Pro Tech flip-up sunglasses. The larger New Era Yankees Fitted Hat was a damning rebellion against traditional cap-wearing styles and will be a sweeping trend in headwear this year.
Despite overwhelming criticism cast upon Major League Baseball’s decision to hold so many games in early April in the frigid Northeast, the MLB reclaimed a substantial victory in setting the standard for winter fashion for 2016. Or, in other words, a sunglasses emoji and two thumbs up!
