Let’s face it: With award season behind us and Thanksgiving looming, it’s pretty boring out there in the baseball world. But the Brewers are doing something pretty cool right now.

The Brewers began taking submissions yesterday in a uniform design contest, dubbed “Design A YOUniform.” The winner will be invited to spring training to see the team wear their design on the field in a game.

You can take a look at the early submissions by clicking here. There’s already quite a few cool designs in there. The deadline for entries is December 13.

The Tigers are expected to hire Ron Gardenhire as the team’s new manager upon completion of a contract, per Ken Rosenthal and Katie Strang of The Athletic. Gardenhire, 59, spent the 2017 season serving as the bench coach for the Diamondbacks.

Gardenhire managed the Twins for 13 seasons between 2002-14, amassing a 1,068-1,039 (.507) record in the regular season and reaching the playoffs six times.

According to Strang and Rosenthal, Gardenhire was one of 10 candidates to interview with the Tigers. Others included Alex Cora, Mike Redmond, Fredi Gonzalez, Joe McEwing, Hensley Meulens, Dave Clark, and Omar Vizquel. Apparently, GM Al Avila wanted a manager with previous major league managing experience.

The Tigers parted ways with previous manager Brad Ausmus at the end of the 2017 regular season, his fourth year at the helm.
