The Tampa Bay Rays just can’t keep themselves out of the fashion headlines. And that’s not necessarily a good thing.
The team has stirred up quite the fashion buzz this season including controversy over Joe Maddon’s gametime hoodies and the new “powder blue” alternate jerseys that many love to hate. But most of the chatter has been about their fashion “themed” road trips. While it’s a nice team-building exercise, the “themes” thus far have had the guys in some very questionable attire.
On the top of that list was the "BRayser" (Blazer + Rays, ha ha) which the team wore on a West Coast road trip back in August. The custom designed blazers featured a navy and powder blue plaid pattern, with a bright yellow sunburst on the lapel. Maddon had said “they met everyone’s approval,” though it’s hard to believe any sports figure other than Craig Sager would be happy to wear this.
Yet somehow the “BRayser” design has transitioned to the baseball cap. Utilizing the same pattern and color scheme, the plaid billed caps were initially created for BP purposes only. However last night they managed to make their way onto the field when the Rays took on the Orioles.
While they didn’t look as bad as some might have expected, A Glam Slam is not a big fan. There's nothing wrong with uniform updates, but in this case, let’s go back to the basics. Giving teams this much creative control is a bit scary, especially when we think of what could be next. Argyle, polka dots?
