Ask Slugger #1

Chris Asks:

“So this is my question. Can you describe what most pro baseball players wear under their uniforms? I know sliding shorts, a.k.a. spandex compression shorts, are probably popular. But what percentage wear cups? Any commentary on this sportsgear question would definitely be appreciated.”

Well, for me it depends on the day. I know that when I play ball I like to wear compression shorts. Some days, when it's really hot I wear just a jock. What makes that fun is when your team wears white pants at home. I played on a summer team in college where our home uniform had white pants. This guy from a college down south loved it. One day during a rain delay he was talkin by his locker which was right nxt to mine about how his school's team had white pants and they showed off some days for the ladies. If you only wear a jock, it's sometimes pretty noticable. These guys are trying to show off to the girls who are in the stands watching them.

If you go to a minor league game you may see some guys only wearing jocks under their uniforms, you now know why.




I do know that most catchers I have been on teams with will wear a cup along with a spandex kind of short over the jock.

Hope you found this helpful Chris. Keep those questions coming in.

Have you ever had sex with another baseball player?

Since we know that all baseball players aren't straight, I just want to say that it's unfair to say that the players are wearing jocks to show off to women. Some are doing it, I'm sure, openly or not, to show off to guys.

I'm really enjoying your blog man, hope you don't mind if I link to it from mine. If you get a free minute, stop by mine and check it out. It's certainly a work in progress, but I think you might enjoy it. By the way, I am a HUGE fan of jockstraps, white pants and a rainy day! Keep up the 'showing off!'

I just ran across your blog and I have to say, what a read. I find myself nodding in agreement in a lot of things you say and have experienced. I work in sports too and it's a homophobic as hell world and I wonder how many more of us are out there? Paranoia does get the best of me now and then but you seem to be holding up well. Good luck.
