If it’s true that clothes make the man, then Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer is siding with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in his fight with the NFL.

The NFL determined that Brady was likely aware that Patriots employees deflated game balls below the minimum air pressure to give him an advantage last season’s AFC title game. For that, Brady was suspended four games.

Brady is fighting the so-called Deflategate suspension, and T-shirts supporting Brady have popped up. They look like this:


What a great Monday! & what great people THANK YOU @kaciemcdonnell & @hosmer305 !!!

Hosmer must have picked one up during the Royals’ trip to Boston last weekend.
