Minor-league team to wear ‘bipartisan’ uniforms on Opening Day

Wednesday March 2nd, 2016

One minor league baseball team is playing the upcoming election right down the middle with its Opening Day uniforms. The New Hampshire Fisher Cats will don ‘bipartisan’ jerseys on April 14 in honor of the state’s primary celebrating its 100th anniversary.

Fans will vote to determine whether the Fisher Cats wear a red elephant or blue donkey cap, honoring democracy.

Pitchers should make sure they avoid the middle of the plate, though.
