Last year the Frederick Keys had a Rugrats Jersey for the 90s Nickelodeon Jersey, and they’re at it again, this time with Hey Arnold Jerseys, check them out below.
For the Mid-Late twenty-somethings (myself included) this is an excellent throwback filled with nostalgia. It’s one of several Nickelodeon Jerseys I grew up watching, and it’s refreshing to see a MiLB team sporting a jersey from that time. The more I see themed nights like this from MiLB teams, the more I wonder why MLB teams aren’t doing jerseys like this.
I know that there are MLB teams that pay homage to the Negro League and the Mexican fanbase (the Brewers are the only team I can think off of the top of my head), but jerseys like this go well beyond that. The Frederick Keys are the Class-A Advanced Affiliate for the Baltimore Orioles named for Star Spangled Banner poet Francis Scott Key.
Josh Hart, OF
The Orioles picked up Hart in the 2013 Supplement Draft, where they gave him $1.45 million. They thought highly of his potential that he has yet to reach, but still has all the tools to do so. Harts best defensive skills lie in playing center-field. He was only 20 during the 2015 season, so there is still plenty of time for Hart to live up to his potential.
Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 30 | Run: 60 | Arm: 40 | Field: 55 | Overall: 40
Tanner Scott, LHP
Scott has hit 100 MPH on the gun before, in 42 1/3 innings last season, the 21-year-old struck out 60 batters and posted a 3.83 ERA. His heater is currently the only useful pitch in his repertoire and he has work to do on his secondary pitches before he can be a reliable starter. If he relied solely on his heat, he could fast track as a late inning reliever, but it seems for now that Scott wants to be a starter.
