One of the most pleasant surprises here during this truncated Orioles 2020 season has been the play of Anthony Santander. The former Rule V pick just had his 18-game hitting streak snapped, but came right back with a clutch RBI that tied the game late in last night’s loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. Santander has posted a .279/.328/.631 line, with 10 home runs and 21 driven in, good for a 148 wRC+.
Even though most of Birdland (though not Mike Bordick…) has now learned how to properly pronounce Santander (Sahn-tan-dare), we’ve still been throwing a bunch of ideas against the wall for a new nickname. It seems that “Tony Taters” has been the one to stick. Now, thanks to our friends at Breaking T, you can rep Tony Taters with this great new shirt.
We’ve partnered with Breaking T a bunch of times over the past few years, most recently on our Ain’t the Beer Cold shirt. I can tell you personally that the shirts are high-quality, comfortable, and most importantly, damn good looking.
So don’t wait…head on over to Breaking T for your Tony Taters shirt, Birdland!
