Twins players rocking business casual look for scoreboard photos (pics)

Baseball players traditionally are adorned in their team’s uniform for the photographs displayed on in-arena scoreboards during their at-bats. The Minnesota Twins flipped that tradition on its head by having the ballplayers rock a look that is much more befitting a business casual style spotted in virtually every office in the country.

Evidence of the radical departure from scoreboard photo convention was on full display during the team’s season-opening homestand this week at Target Field.

Huh. The players look like they jumped right out of a Kohl’s mailer or something. Weird.

Outfielder Shane Robinson’s photo appears to be the only pic that flew in the face of the new concept.

Huh. Again, weird.
