Not since ANGEL PAGAN broke in on the North Side has a major league player sported a handle as seemingly contradictory as DARWIN BARNEY!
His first name is derived from the celebrated naturalist who developed the modern theory of evolution, while his surname conjures thoughts of a bipedal, tool-using, singing dinosaur. The conflicting concepts may be confusng, but DB knows what to do on the field – he’s an excellent defensive player with speed, clutch hitting and effort that never wanes, making him a fan favorite at the Friendly Confines.
Darwin was a gymnast as a youngster and he brings that athleticism to the field, notching a Gold Glove at second base in only his second full MLB season. He’s also a winner, having been on squads that won a state high school championship, two NCAA titles, and a world youth gold medal…could a Cubs’ World Series title be next?
He’s adorable, he’s a gamer, and he may be a key piece in Chicago’s rebuilding effort under Theo Epstein – show your love for his skills and effort with this exceedingly silly and fun shirt that combines the imagery of his disparate names into one comical pinstriped character.
Like all National Fanthem, it is not an official product of any player, league, franchise or prehistoric children's character - it's just a comical piece of original art from our imagination; created by hand and rendered digitally as a lossless high-resolution vector graphic for perfect printing. It comes on sport grey, royal blue or Carolina blue 100% cotton pre-shrunk tees in sizes small through 5XL. ( Alternate brands/cuts/colors/sizes can be custom-printed for little additional cost
