The 1980s were good to the Milwaukee Brewers, with a World Series trip, two Cy Young winners and three MVP awards.
So on their latest travel day to Kansas City on Monday, the Brewers paid homage to that decade but with some noticeably bigger hair and much tighter pants.
Dressed in 1980s gear, the Brewers covered all the bases of the decade’s fashion trends before they boarded their plane in Milwaukee on Monday afternoon. Pitchers Marco Estrada, John Axford and Kameron Loe and catcher George Kottaras comprised the team’s wig-laden 80s hair band, complete with tight bright pants and blown-out long hair. Axford, who had one of the better costumes from the team’s Western-themed road trip to Houston last summer, led the way again by dressing up in drag.

It was clear the team had some fun on the way to Kansas City, and if it can channel some of its 1980s flair in the next two series, the Brewers might be looking good when they return to Miller Park.
But for one plane ride at least that wasn’t a problem.
“80s Band rockin the world!” Axford tweeted. “God we look good.”
