Top Nine Other Holidays Baseball Should Celebrate

This post was originally meant to involve holidays that occur when the baseball season is actually going on. Upon further consideration, however, I remembered that MLB is actually pretty “good” about adapting its uniforms to any given occasion. So I figured I’d have to include some from the offseason, as they haven’t gotten to those yet…

*Valentine’s Day: all-red uniforms. Fans in Cincinnati will be gypped, but they’ll survive.

*April Fools Day: “If the season ended today, we’d be in the playoffs! We’re in first place! Why are you looking at me like that?”

*May Day: Bullpen coaches get absolute control over the pitching staff, with the manager’s contribution limited to calling, hanging up immediately, and snickering.

*Cinco de Mayo: A uniform scheme will admittedly be difficult here if the Diamondbacks veto the Mexican flag logo, but it’s doable.

*Flag Day: June 14. Seriously. They can reuse those hats they keep wearing on Fourth of July weekend.

*Halloween: normal uniforms, but with orange ribbons to symbolize the fight against tooth decay.

*Thanksgiving Day: All-you-can-eat deals in the stands. Half-price in Cleveland.

*Chinese New Year: Fireworks after every home run. And hit. And out.

*Presidents’ Day: Top hats. ‘Nuff said.
