The Milwaukee Brewers honouring the large German population in their town donned uniforms featuring their team name in German this afternoon and their opponents, the Pittsburgh Pirates, joined in on the fun.
Here are pics of the uniforms worn today, first up the Milwaukee Brewers / Milwaukee Bierbrauer:
The Pittsburgh Pirates / Pittsburgh Piraten:
Both teams are already offering the jerseys for sale, with the Pirates one considerably cheaper than the Brewers — you can get the Pittsburgh Piraten jersey here or the Milwaukee Bierbrauer jersey here.
This is the second time the Pirates and Brewers have played the language game in Milwaukee, on July 10, 2010 both teams wore Spanish language jerseys.
