Each weekend Half Smokes Heroes will pay some respect to a group or individual flying under the radar who has gone above and beyond the call of duty during the week.
If yesterday's game showed us anything, it's that while throwback unifroms have become a bit cliché, they're still awesome.
Seriously, take a look at the photos from yesterday's game. No disrespect to the Nationals current uniform set, but nothing can hold a candle to a uniform with stirrups. Even when teams just wear socks that look like stirrups, it's still an upgrade. While I understand that stirrups will most likely never make a comeback, having the occasional throwback game gives us fans a nice aesthetic treat to go along with the game.â†µ
Besides, anything that makes Livan Hernandez seem like even more of an old-school pitcher than he already is makes for an instant win.â†µ
