Mark Willis is a website designer/artist who also writes about soccer and he put those talents to work creating hypothetical soccer jerseys (or kits, if you want to act like you’re a soccer fan or something) for all the American League East teams.

Here’s a sample of the back of Wilson Betemit’s Orioles jersey:

They’re really cool looking and his explanations are very interesting too, so check them out:

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
