Ex-Yankees pitcher David Wells puts tape over Nike logo on Yankees uniform: ‘I hate Nike’

Former New York Yankees players returned to the Bronx for the 75th edition of the team’s annual Old-Timers’ Day.

David Wells, who was a member of the 1998 Yankees World Series champion team, arrived at Yankee Stadium with a noticeable alteration to his jersey – a piece of tape. The tape in question was placed over the jersey’s Nike logo.

Wells was asked about the piece of tape, and he proceeded to make his feelings about the sports apparel giant clear.

“I hate Nike,” he said. “They’re woke.” Wells also suggested that if he were not retired from Major League Baseball, he would have cut the logo out of the jersey.

The Yankees could soon see their streak of 30 consecutive winning seasons come to an end. The team’s postseason chances are also on life support.
