Take me out to a ball game… in a suit

Major League Baseball is the issuing a dress code in writing for members of the media. The list includes dont’s such as flip-flops and “visible undergarments.”

The MLB claims that the dress code is not based on any single incident, instead it is trying to create a more professional environment, or at least business casual.

As a disclaimer, I’ve never been to a baseball game, let alone covered one. But if you are covering a sports came for a paper, you are representing that paper. One would think that they would want to dress in a way that shows respect and gains some respect as well.

Now that they have this settled, I recommend that they get their heads back in the game and play some baseball.
