J.D. Martinez Cracks Joke About Players’ Weekend Uniforms After Stellar Night


Aug 24, 2019

Players’ Weekend has not been kind to the Boston Red Sox in the past.

Entering Friday, the Red Sox were 0-6 during Players’ Weekend, but they bucked that trend in a big way by kicking off their series opener with the San Diego Padres with an 11-0 victory. It was a big night for Sox slugger J.D. Martinez in particular, as he drove in a career-high seven runs, due largely to a pair of three-run homers.

Now, the all-black and all-white Players’ Weekend uniforms have not been universally well-received (just ask Terry Francona), but Martinez doesn’t have much of a gripe with them.

After the victory, Martinez cracked a joke about the getup.

“I like them, I guess,” Martinez said, via The Boston Globe. “I had a good game in them. If I do that tomorrow I might not take them off.”

He’ll have a chance to continue the magic Saturday night, with first pitch from Petco Park coming at 8:40 p.m. ET.
