Looking for another reason to go to an A's game? Free Zubaz pants might do the trick. According to MLB.com, fans that purchase a special Plaza Reserved ticket package for the team's August 3 game against the Rangers will receive a pair of green and gold Zubaz pants.
What are Zubaz pants? Ridiculously tacky zebra-like pants that according to the promotion "have been worn by some of the world's best fans and top athletes, most recently by A's pitchers Pat Neshek, Sean Doolittle, and Evan Scribner," a wonderful trend that began in 1988.
The Zubaz website also boasts matching sunglasses, ties and NFL pants as well.
The Zubaz pants made their way back into the hearts of A's players, it seems, earlier this month when the company surprised the clubhouse with a shipment of the pants after reliever Pat Neshek tweeted a picture of the A's groundskeepers wearing them in the 1990s. "We need to get the Oakland grounds crew wearing @zubaz again," he said.
It appears, if the promotion goes well, he may get a good chunk of the stadium wearing them.
