This Taiwanese Baseball Team Will Go Super Saiyan With Their DBZ Inspired Uniforms

This Taiwanese Baseball Team Will Go Super Saiyan With Their DBZ Inspired Uniforms

All around the world, baseball is known for its “theme days.” From celebrating a specific player with a bobblehead to celebrating the pop-culture mainstays like Star Wars, teams try to make it fun for the fans (one of our personal favorites was when the New York Mets hosted the official wedding of Spider-Man and Mary Jane Watson back in 1987).

According to Kotaku, Chinatrust Brothers, a baseball team from Taiwan, is joining this tradition by having a “Dragon Ball Z Weekend” May 5-6 when they take on the Uni-Present 7-11 Lions.

For the weekend, Chinatrust will be officially re-naming the team “Brother Z” and their logo will be in the show’s traditional font. Special Dragon Ball themed merchandise will also be on sale.

It’s events like this which show how similar cultures can be. The love of baseball and Dragon Ball Z we have here in the United States is shared by people on the other side of the world. It’s also an opportunity to see some of the differences. For example, here in North America, corporate sponsorship takes over the stadium names (Safeco Field, MetLife Stadium, etc.), whereas overseas the TEAMS are named after their sponsors. Regardless of where you are in the world, weird naming conventions are apparently Universal.

So what do you think? Will these new uniforms help Chinatrust Brothers reach level 9000? What theme days would you like your favorite team to have? Let me know on Twitter @donnielederer or hit a line drive in the comments below.
