Jacob Petricka has gotten into the spirit of mullet night, but he’s not sure for how long.
The White Sox are hosting Mullet Night at U.S. Cellular Field on Friday and their rookie reliever decided to join in the festivities. Petricka needed a haircut Friday and asked for a mullet in honor of “a fun time” and to “keep things loose.”
But Petricka isn’t sure his freshly cut mane will even make it to first pitch, which is scheduled for 7:10 p.m.
“We’ll test run it in (batting practice) and see if I can rock this out in the game,” Petricka said. “It takes a lot to rock a mullet so we’ll see.”
