Well this comes out of left field, yet could be a home run. Yes, I’m feeling punny tonight, but after coaching a full season of Pee Wee Baseball this year, I’m still in a sorta ballpark vibe, and when news slid into Rock Father HQ about a partnership between KISS and Major League Baseball, you can bet I was interested. Epic Rights (rep for KISS) teamed with MLP licensee Liquid Blue for a new clothing line called PLAY BALL WITH KISS. The initial run of mashup t-shirts features the iconic band as players for a dozen MLB teams, all themed around the DRESSED TO KILL album art.
Liquid Blue is already working on a second run called LOCKER PLATE that will take inspiration from KISS’ “Detroit Rock City.” Teams currently on-deck for the KISS treatment are: The New York Yankees and New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers and The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, Chicago Cubs, Boston Red Sox, Philadelphia Phillies, Pittsburgh Pirates, Detroit Tigers, Washington Nationals, Oakland Athletics, and the St. Louis Cardinals.
Now, being a resident of Chicagoland that grew up on the South Side and now resides North, I’m a fan of both the Cubs and the White Sox (my ultimate favorite), but right now, only The Cubs are in the queue. Check this out:
According to the Liquid Blue website, “All MLB Teams Will Soon Be Available.” Good news for this fan who wants one for each of his hometown teams.
Rock and Roll… all nite, even.
