Mexico is set to face off against the Dominican Republic in tonight’s Caribbean Series title game at Estadio Sonora in Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. The Mexican people are hopefully to watch their nation bring home the championship as the host city for the first time since 2005.
“This is for the team,” said Mexican international and Kansas City Royals pitcher Luis Mendoza. “We’re one team, and everyone deserves this victory.”
Mendonza was a bit part of Mexico’s success that led them to the title game and he hopes to keep the momentum rolling into the season.
“I’m going to try to take this into Spring Training,” said Mendoza. “That and my health is most important. I finished strong and I felt good throughout, and that was the best part of this.”
The Caribbean Series Championship game will take place at 7 p.m. MT in Hermosillo.
While the baseball action should be the main focus of the game, we can’t help but be blown away by the uniforms Mexico has been wearing for the series. They appear to be more of a NASCAR driver’s race suit than a uniform of a baseball player. Check out Mexico’s uniforms with all of the ad placement:
I can understand some product placement, but man, these things are out of control. Let’s hope that Major League Baseball doesn’t get any bright ideas from the sponsorships that are plastered all over Mexico’s uniforms. What do you think of the overwhelming ad placement?
