Someone needs to get me this t-shirt

One of HBT’s Philadelphia operatives sent me an email over the weekend to tell me that he saw a t-shirt at Citizens Bank Park on Friday night which read as follows:

We have:

  • 84 home games
  • Roy Halladay
  • Tasers
  • Your signs

Not sure if it said “resistance is futile” or anything else clever on the bottom, but I’m not sure it needed to. By far the best t-shirt I’ve heard of at a ballpark this year.  It’s so full of win that I’d wear it despite the fact that I’m a Braves guy.

UPDATE:  I’m told that the shirt is the product of Zoo With Roy and can be purchased here. Hats off, ZWR. Awesome shirt.

Troy Tulowitzki poses as a pitcher on photo day

Update: The photographer was apparently in on the action, according to Topps. Still pretty funny. (Hat tip: Mike Ashmore)

Thursday marked photo day for the Blue Jays. There are always some oddities, usually when the players create fun for themselves. This time, the fun happened when a photographer mistook shortstop Troy Tulowitzki for a pitcher. Tulowitzki rolled with it and followed the photographer’s instructions to pose like a pitcher.

Hazel Mae has the hilarious video:

Hitters, of course, typically pose with a bat over their shoulder. Pitchers typically have their hand in their glove, sometimes leaning forward as if receiving the signs from their catcher.

Tulowitzki has exclusively played shortstop during his 12-year career in the majors, but perhaps one day he’ll step on the mound and be able to call himself a pitcher.
