Our eyes hurt just from seeing the image of the Christmas-sweater jersey to be worn on Aug. 2 by the Williamsport Crosscutters (short season A; NY-Penn League) during a Halfway to Christmas promotion.
Actually, this is a brilliant promotion. These jerseys are so ugly they are beautiful — just like the best/worst Christmas sweaters — and they’ll be auctioned off after the game. The original game night was rained out, so the promo has been rescheduled for Aug. 2.
