Entry #: 3184484
|Stirrups are the correct name. Personally, I like the traditional look it provides. And stirrups are starting to make a comeback in the majors: Nyjer Morgan, A's rookie starter Josh Outman, and others. I prefer the real thing over the faux stirrup stripes painted on the sock, my brother seems to like that look.|
Whether or not they're too much for beer league softball? That's a judgment call. Everyone knows I don't know much about fashion on the softball field. For God's sake, I wore Jennie Finch kneepads for the better part of two seasons! But I also wear them for coaching baseball, so I'm kind of set in my ways. I know people probably make fun of me for them, but you guys give me enough shit about everything else anyways, so I'm used to it.
