MLB unveils new specialty uniforms and I don’t like any of them

When I think about fathers in sports, I just can’t imagine how many athletes we’ve seen over the years credit their father for their success. And how much more important a father means to a kid in their quest to balance their lives as an athlete and a person.

Thinking back, you have great moments like Robinson Cano’s home run derby last year or even all the old clips of Tiger Woods with his dad.

Happy Father’s Day, pop!
