MLB Becomes First North American Pro League To Issue Dress Code For Media Members
Published December 7, 2011
TWITTER REAX: SportsBusiness Journal's Eric Fisher wrote on his Twitter feed, "Lot of jokes re: new baseball writer dress code. But it basically codifies common sense. Any self-respecting pro already avoids banned items." Current TV's Keith Olbermann wrote, "If it had been a WELL-dressed code, would've wiped out everybody except Vin Scully." NBCSports.com's Craig Calcaterra wrote, "Don't worry: pleated Dockers still OK." The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Rob Biertempfel wrote, "Maybe I'm wearing a sweater vest today to comply with the new MLB dress code for media." Sportscaster Len Berman wrote, "MLB new dress code for the media, banning skimpy skirts....that's just for the women reporters, right?" The San Diego Union-Tribune's Tim Sullivan wrote, "I'm embarrassed MLB has imposed a dress code on media covering the game. Not because it's an infringement, because we've gotten too lax." CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman wrote, "I want to see baseball actually enforce this alleged dress code."
