Orioles incorporate braile lettering in uniforms.....

MSN.COM

Quote:
The Baltimore Orioles on Wednesday announced plans to incorporate Braille lettering into the teamís uniforms for a Sept. 18 game in honor of National Federation of the Blind Night at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
Some suggested slogans:

Baseball - Feel it!
Feel your favorite player day!

I don't really see anything wrong with it, but it seems a little humorous. Kind of like presenting a Ken doll to someone that doesn't identify as male or female.

The Braille is for the umpire's benefit.

Lol.

My twisted brain immediately thought of fast food drive-thru menus that have braille on them, although those are ostensibly for a passenger sitting behind the driver.

Will they include a meet and greet to at least have a functional purpose?

I can hear it now, " hey lady, my braile patch is up here!".

The way they have played this year, it may be to benefit some of the players (Reds not much better).

Kind of a fan massage?
