There’s always been an affinity for baseball and things made from foam. Foam fingers, foam giant cowboy hats, foam claw hands for the Texas Rangers, foam Trout hats for Mike Trout, and now my favorite, the Josh Reddick foam championship belt.
The Athletics tweeted out that picture yesterday. It’s perfect for the fan of baseball and wrestling. Reddick himself is a huge wrestling fan, from having his own replica WWE title belt to his current beard-off with WWE Tag Team champion Daniel Bryan. It’s a perfect mesh of player and fan rolled into one piece of merchandise. I’m sure Oakland’s right field bleacher crew can’t wait to get their hands on one and neither can I.
