Pirates fans who attend Friday night's home game against the Reds will be receiving quite a treat.
That's because the team is planning to giveaway a free t-shirt, which features starting pitcher A.J. Burnett striking an amusing pose, to every fan in attendance.
It looks as though the 36-year-old veteran could easily pass for a retro Vanilla Ice. Seriously, Burnett nails everything from the spiffy hair, the cool shades, and the double peace signs. In fact, one might even be led to believe that the two were brothers.
Upon further review, it looks like the Pirates have a free t-shirt giveaway once every month this season, and they call it "Free Shirt Friday." However, after scouring through the remaining promotional schedule, there isn't a shirt left that can even come close to the coolness factor of this one.
Burnett is aiming to pick up his first win of the season on Friday and will oppose Reds right-hander Mike Leake in an affair set to begin at 7:05 p.m.
