Uni Watch reader Adam Foxman plays in a 16-inch softball league. If you’re not familiar with 16-inch softball (also called mushball, and several other names), it’s played primarily in Chicago, where Foxman lives. As Wikipedia explains, the game “is a variant of softball, but using a larger ball that gradually becomes softer the more the ball is hit, and played with no gloves or mitts on the fielders” (which explains why Foxman is bare-handed in the photo shown above).
Anyway: Adam’s team is called the Pancake Batters, and he was charged with the task of coming up with some new uniforms for this season. He presented his teammates with several design options to choose from:
The little home plate-shaped butter pat is a nice touch, no?
Adam was hoping that his teammates would choose the tequila sunrise-inspired design (“The stripes also work as pancake stacks and syrup,” he points out), and that’s exactly what happened. Here’s how the finished product turned out:
And here are some gameday photos:
Congrats to Adam on creating a fun design for his team. Go Cakes!
