Fresno Grizzlies to wear Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles jerseys on August 2nd
There will come a day, one I pray that isn’t soon, when nostalgic, ’90s children’s fads will have been worn thin. When we’ll have gone through Boy Meets World bobblehair day and Clarissa Explains It All Scorecard Pandemonium.
Fortunately, we’re not there yet as the Fresno Grizzlies have just announced that they will be wearing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles uniforms on August 2nd.
Which, is a) great and b) another step in the hilarious saga of TMNT as the four rad dudes were invented as a satire on superhero comics.
Of course, these are not “official” TMNT jerseys, I mean, sure, they’re officially licensed and the team has the legal right to use them, but since I own a Raphael baseball action figure, I know for a fact that were the turtles to play baseball, they would wear a more traditional uniform.
And now, because I know you’ve been dying to know, here is my Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles roster:
P: Michaelangelo (because he’s wacky)
C: Donatello (he’s thoughtful)
1B: Casey Jones (Swings a mean bat)
2B: Splinter (former SS, moved off the position for his age)
3B: Bebop (Good power, bad glove)
SS: Leonardo (team leader)
LF: Raphael (Too rude to play in the infield)
CF: April O’Neil (investigative journalism is very similar to outfield defense)
RF: Rocksteady (Strong arm)
