For their final season-ending trip to Colorado, Dodgers coaches adopted Deion Sanders’ swagger.

 

It has become a yearly tradition for baseball teams to dress in costumes for their final road trip of the regular season.
After the team’s four-game series with Colorado on Thursday night, the Dodgers coaches chose a local allusion among the usual assortment of video game icons, TV and movie characters, and internet memes.

 

As the team departed Denver, manager Dave Roberts and his staff appeared as Deion Sanders, the head coach of the Buffaloes football team. He revealed to ESPN’s Buster Olney that Coach Prime and his Buffs’ rise to prominence as college football’s biggest story served as his motivation for donning hats and sunglasses.

As the “Prime” of the Dodgers’ universe, according to director of player performance Brandon McDaniel, Roberts wore a white cowboy hat and a long-sleeve CU T-shirt.
The other coaches either dressed as Sanders’ security detail or wore regular caps with their T-shirts.

 

When Sanders learned about the Dodgers’ amusing plans, he sent a pair of Blender sunglasses to Coors Field, adding to Roberts’ outfit’s authenticity.

 

Pitching coach Mark Prior was the lone holdout for the Coach Prime theme; he reportedly couldn’t bring himself to wear Colorado gear with the Buffaloes scheduled to play USC this weekend.
Prior, a former Trojan, chose to dress as USC head coach Lincoln Riley instead.
