Many Blue Jays fans have taken to social media to say they dislike the team’s new all-star jersey, which has an American flag on it.
It appears that Major League Baseball is paying tribute to the time the Jays have spent playing in the U.S. during the pandemic.
The Jays have played home games in Buffalo and Dunedin.
“They put an American flag on the #BlueJays #AllStarsGaame jersey. These jerseys are embarrassing and a joke,” wrote Aaron Golab.
There is a red-and-white American flag on the sleeve of the jersey.
“This is like a jersey your aunt — who has no idea about baseball … or the history of the sport … or baseball uniforms in general, would give you as a Christmas gift. Only, in this case, we don’t have to pretend that we like it,” said another poster to social media.
Chris Creamer posted: “This has to be a mistake, right? Like the guy photoshopping all these product graphics just forgot to swap out the flag on the sleeve, right? Right?!?”
