Southwest Minnesota State Baseball Player’s Griffey Jr. Blackface Costume


Southwest Minnesota State baseball player Tanner Neale might want this Halloween costume back. This is one of those costumes where he wasn’t thinking clearly and one of his buddies didn’t tell him it might not look good to be Ken Griffey Jr. in blackface.

Tanner explains his costume:

Tanner (@neale10), a junior catcher from South Dakota, started 22 games last season as a catcher for the Mustangs.

I’m still waiting to hear back from Tanner re: Was the costume a tad insensitive? You know, because the blackface thing is considered slightly racist.

Without blackface:
