Boston Red Sox players just received one of the most patriotic items of clothing they’ll likely ever own, thanks to teammate Jonny Gomes.

Gomes, who has embraced his role with the Red Sox, surprised his teammates Wednesday with some amazing American flag-inspired sport coats.

While some thought the blazers might be for the team’s April 1 visit to the White House, apparently they’re just for casual use.

Between the blazers and Gomes’ most recent tattoo, it’s tough not to appreciate the gritty outfielder.
