With different-colored eyes, Tigers P wore fitting goggles during celebration (photo)

As is plainly evident above, Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer has  Heterochromia iridum, a condition that in the most basic of layman’s terms causes a person’s eyes to be two different colors.

Having said condition, the unique set of goggles Scherzer strapped to his head to protect his multi-colored eyes during Detroit’s celebration following the team advancing to the ALCS after dispatching the Oakland A’s on Thursday were completely appropriate.

Tweeted by Erica May, the significant other of Scherzer, with the message, “Best anniversary gift ever!!”, Scherzer sported goggles with multi-colored lenses to match his mutli-colored eyes during the raucous celebration:

Awesome. Not a bad-looking cigar either…or significant other, for that matter.

When the Tigers created a Max Scherzer bobblehead, the team took into account Scherzer’s different-colored eyes:

That’s pretty awesome, too.

    What would you expect. The asinine role model Max Scherzer with a cancer causing cigar in his mouth sets a fine example for adolescents to see that there is nothing wrong with smoking and athletics – NOT.

    I guess he takes his cues from his tobacco addicted manager Jim Leyland. Is the local bar in Detroit still selling the tee shirt with Leyland’s mug on it with a cigarette dangling from his lips or did the Tigers management finally put a stop to it after their front office got ton of protests?

      Get off your holier than thou pedestal. Drop the anti-smoking campaign and go take your meth or whatever other substance you use for you’re better living through chemistry crutch, and just go away. Go Max, Go Leyland, Go TIgers.

        Hey Tusc, you couldn’t be more off base with your naive response.

        Just to let you know though, I’m with you on the Tigers winning the Series and hopefully we’ll see a repeat of the 1968 World Series between the Tigers and the Red Birds if St. Louis can win Game 7 against the Giants tomorrow.

        But that doesn’t change the fact that all Tigers personnel should refrain from public display of their use of tobacco products. With Leyland, we know he is still addicted to tobacco but at least has done a better job of keeping it out of the public, whereas Scherzer was just plain not thinking when he put the cigar in his mouth in front of cameras.
