MLB Twitter Trolls Matt Holliday Over Ridiculous Outfit During MLB Draft

Minutes after Jackson Holliday was selected as the overall pick of the MLB draft, MLB Twitter trolled his dad Matt about his outfit.

That Baltimore Orioles seeded his first overall pick in tonight’s MLB draft to shortstop Jackson Holliday, son of seven-time MLB All-Stars Matt Holliday.

The younger Holliday is a shortstop who becomes only the second second-generation player in MLB history to win 1-1, with the first being someone you may be familiar with named Ken Griffey Jr.

The elder Holliday was a 15-year MLB veteran and has the unique distinction of being a superstar caliber player for two teams, the Colorado Rockies and the St. Louis Cardinals. Matt spent eight years with the Cards (four All-Star Game selections) and six years with the Rockies (six All-Star Game selections).

Jackson is said to be far more agile and defensively versatile than Matt, who was strictly a left fielder who didn’t own much glove or throwing arm, as evidenced by his -13.2 dWAR per baseball reference.

Minutes after Jackson’s selection, the guys at MLB Network reached out to him and his family via a Zoom call to congratulate him and get an initial reaction from everyone.

Though Matt still looked like he could take to the field with an MLB club any day, he wore a questionable outfit that added a ton of firepower to the MLB Twitter trolls. MLB Twitter Trolls Matt Holliday Over Ridiculous Outfit During MLB Draft
