CHICAGO WHITE SOX WEAR LOUDMOUTH PANTS ON FASHION-THEMED ROAD TRIP
The Tampa Bay Rays became notorious for their fashion-themed road trips in recent years. With Manager Joe Maddon leading the charge, the squad has been styled in looks from to pajamas to “Seattle Grunge” to those infamous “BRaysers.” Following in the footsteps of the Rays, the latest road trip for the Chicago White Sox had the team dressed up in dramatic fashion.
The White Sox rolled into Baltimore wearing Loudmouth Golf pants, the wild trousers often seen on PGA golfer, John Daly. The Loudmouth brand is known for its use of bold colors, displayed in an array of wacky patterns. MLB players typically suit up to arrive at the stadium and as White Sox first baseman Paul Konerko noted, this was a welcome wardrobe change. The Sox players’ and coaches each sported their own unique look, as the clothes were designed for their size and style. The team’s website notes, “catcher A.J. Pierzynski’s pants were in Florida Gators colors, while reliever Matt Thornton’s pants had Michigan Wolverines colors to represent their college football allegiance. Sale had dollar signs on his pants, signifying he’s “money” on the mound.”
White Sox Manager, Robin Ventura, played fashion police, saying: “I think they accessorized a little too much. It wasn’t supposed to go that far.”
“I don’t know if we’re exactly pulling it off, but we’re wearing it, that’s for darn sure. We’re guys. We just like to have fun, joke around, have a good laugh every once in awhile.” said pitcher, Chris Sale.
