Joe Maddon rocks short shorts at practice. You're welcome, GQ
On Sunday, Maddon used Cubbies practice as an opportunity to teach his players two lessons: one on baseball and one on lookin' good while doing it.
Maddon took us back to a simpler time by rocking some short shorts at practice.
According to MLB.com's Carrie Muskat, the intent was a "tribute to coach." The manager and his staff were wearing athletic shorts more common at a football practice rather than a baseball diamond. Each coach also had a whistle on a lanyard around their neck.
They say dress for the job you want, not the job you've got. So ... if there's a vacancy on the 1972 Dillon Panthers football coaching staff, we're guessing that Maddon is interested.
