Red Sox play game with green shamrock bases for St. Patrick’s Day (Photo)


For years, Major League Baseball has always used St. Patricks day as an excuse to dress up.

What started with green hats has morphed into green uniforms/jerseys, green practice gear and even members of the team/stadium attendants dressing up in costume. As if that wasn’t enough, Major League Baseball has started marketing actual St. Patrick’s Day gear for their team shop.

But it appears the Boston Red Sox have outdone them all as they’re playing today’s Spring Training game with green bases.

It’s actually the second time the Red Sox have used the green bases, but this year they’ve added a special touch – a white clover atop the green base.

Looking like MLB’s version of the Boston Celtics, the Red Sox tweeted out a photo of the green bases this morning.

In addition to the painted bases, the Red Sox were obviously in full green gear, rocking both hats and uniforms to match.

Little odd to see the Red Sox rocking Celtics green, but still looks pretty sweet regardless.
