Celebrate Mother's Day at the Ballpark on a loaded Sunday schedule.
In what has become an annual consumerist tradition, the Jordan Brand will unveil special "Mother's Day" cleats for its MLB endorsed roster. Baseball players such as Manny Machado, Dexter Fowler and Dellin Betances will don a custom floral print design on their usual Air Jordan 9 baseball cleats. The color pink will outline the trim and with green appearing on the tongue of the sneaker. Each player's cleat will come outfitted with special embroideries and inscription of their choosing.
The Air Jordan 9 Pinnacle is part of Michael Jordan's multisport vision. Back in 1994 Jordan famously traded in his patented leather shoes for a stint chasing ground balls. Even though he failed to leave an impression in Baseball, his love for the game remains a point of interest, and his Mother the foundation for his success.
The league itself also got in on the fun, posting a series of "in-game interviews" with Major Leaguer's moms. The campaign gives fans of the game added insight into the development of their favorite players, should they choose to pursue a career themselves. OF course if you're reading this it might be too late to embark on prospective career in the MLB if you haven't already begun training. The interviews are available here.
