MLB and Victoria’s Secret are teaming up to sell licensed clothing to young women under the “Pink” label. As Maury describes:
“The collection showcases VS PINK’s highly recognizable brand
iconography with fun sayings like “I only kiss Padres fans” or “Love
Love Love Twins”, and boasts cute zip-pocket tees, crystallized caps,
baseball jerseys, as well as stylish and comfortable hoodies, tanks,
sweats, shorts and more.”
Female baseball fans who want to buy logo-merchandise that doesn’t condescend to them as shallow, luv-crazy juveniles can presumably still purchase products at MLB.com.
The Pawtucket Red Sox, obviously the Triple-A affiliate of the Red Sox, have come up with an interesting promotion for the weekend of May 5 and 6, when they host the Yankees’ Triple-A team from Scranton/Wilkes-Barre.
This, of course, references last week’s benches-clearing fracas between the Red Sox and Yankees that involved Joe Kelly and Tyler Austin. Kelly slid hard into second base, which upset Brock Holt. The benches emptied as the two jawed at each other, but no punches were thrown. Later in the game, Kelly threw at Austin and the benches emptied again. Punches were thrown this time and both players were given suspensions.
The major league Red Sox visit the Yankees May 8-10. As far as we’re aware, people named Joe or Kelly are allowed to attend.
