Stirrups of the Day: NC State

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

A lamentation: The wearing of exposed stirrups is too rare a thing in the modern game. In part, this is why we are honor-bound to highlight those teams and players who are doing their best to breathe life into the sacred practice of stirrup-wearing. On that point, please do doff your caps to the NC State Wolfpack, who would seem to know a thing or two regarding gentlemanly use of the stirrup ...

I give this my Fred McGriff-style Full Professional EndorsementTM. The big game implied above is the no. 5 Wolfpack against the second-ranked Seminoles of Florida State. Win or lose, though, the Pack will look like ballplayers.

And the people say: ¡"Viva la stirrups!
