Seattle Mariners showed off their local pride for the team’s first “Dress Up Day”
The Mariners are currently a half game out of first place in the AL West and the team is having quite a bit of fun with its winning ways this season, as new manager Scott Servais is taking a page from Joe Maddon’s book and instituting “Dress Up Days” for some of the team’s travels.
The first of the events happened on Tuesday with the theme of “Where are you from?” Just as they have been on the field, the Seattle players did not disappoint, pulling out all the stops as they wore everything from Indiana basketball jerseys and warmup pants, traditional garb from Korea and Japan and, in the case of Robinson Cano, a sugar cane harvester’s uniform, according to The Seattle Times.
While the team may have had a lot of fun, the tradition may be shortlived, as the Mariners fell to the Padres 14–6 the day after they debuted the costumes.
