Nationals selling Max Scherzer inspired ‘Strikeouts Are Sexy’ T-shirts

Friday May 13th, 2016

After Max Scherzer tied the MLB record with 20 strikeouts in a game on Wednesday, he finished off the game with a wonderful quote that summed up why his dazzling game was such a big deal.

“The strikeouts are sexy, and that just makes it special, and the 20 really puts a stamp on it.”

Strikeouts are indeed sexy and the Washington Post reports fans will be able to commemorate Scherzer’s achievement and let everyone know they agree with his statement with a new T-shirt that is being sold by the team.

• Six Mike Trout trade packages just as reasonable as any other

The shirt was put together by BreakingT, the same company which designed Washington’s “Make Baseball Fun Again” shirts, inspired by a quote from reigning MVP Bryce Harper.
