A baseball team is going to wear a jersey covered completely in emojis

Monday February 15th, 2016

The Kalamazoo Growlers, a summer collegiate wood bat team, are calling the uniforms they’ll wear during a game this summer “emojerseys.” But they won’t be paying tribute to My Chemical Romance or Taking Back Sunday. No, it’s going to be a jersey covered entirely in emojis.

The jersey, which will be worn on August 13th against the Rockford Rivets, will feature a collage of 25 emojis and fans will be able to vote for which ones they want to appear. Every fan who votes will be entered into a drawing to receive one of the jerseys and tickets to five games. Another five voters will just get the five-game package.

There are 100 emojis listed as voting options, but write-in submissions are allowed, so fans of the skull, eggplant and other emojis need not fear.
