Before Thursday, Kris Kross was just a boy band from yesteryear that only Chicago Cubs fans still heard whenever Kris Bryant walked up to the plate. But on Thursday, everyone in attendance at the Fresno Grizzlies Triple-A game recalled the popular 1990s group.
As part of the promotion on Thursday, the Grizzlies wore their jerseys as the Kris Kross band used to wear their shirts more than 20 years ago. Here’s a picture of catcher Juan Centeno sporting the uniform.

It’s still early, but the Grizzlies probably wish they could “criss cross” their record as well. They are 6-8 through the first two weeks of the season.
