Pirates’ Frazier wears Spring Training jersey in Cincinnati

Pittsburgh Pirates second baseman Adam Frazier wore his Spring Training jersey on Sunday. At least for one inning. 

Frazier made the mistake against the Cincinnati Reds in Cincinnati, Ohio. He had the Grapefruit League jersey on during his first inning at bat, before changing it.

The MLB teams are in their first weekend of baseball after spending several weeks in either Florida or Arizona playing exhibition baseball. When the game started in Cincinnati, it was 35 degrees. 

“Just trying to make 40 degrees feel warmer,” Frazier jokes about it on Twitter after the game. 

The 27-year-old Athens, Georgia native is in his fourth MLB season with the Pirates. He should have known the difference unless he wasn’t paying attention when he put the jersey on. 

That could have happened. It is also quite possible that he warmed up in it before later changing it to the regular jersey. 

One also has to blame the Equipment Department for the Pirates, as they were the one’s, who put the Spring Training jersey in Frazier’s locker.

Frazier has appeared in two of the three-game set with the Reds. He has a .222 batting average with two hits and one run. 

He also has two strikeouts and one walk.
