After MLB threatens Ben Zobrist with fine for wearing black spikes, he wears them again

The fashion police caught up with Ben Zobrist on Friday.

Major League Baseball threatened the Cubs veteran with a fine and discipline for wearing black spikes, a violation of uniform regulations. Zobrist on Saturday posted a response to MLB on his Instagram account and went rogue again, wearing black cleats when he entered as a defensive replacement in the ninth inning against the White Sox.

Zobrist declined to talk about his protest after the Cubs’ 8-4 victory — their fifth straight — saying he would discuss the issue with the players union and MLB. Asked if he would wear the black shoes again Sunday, he laughed and reminded the media he’s wearing pink shoes for Mother’s Day.

Zobrist clearly was unhappy with MLB’s letter threatening disciplinary action should he wear the shoes again, calling it ridiculous in his Instagram post, which included photos of the spikes and the MLB letter.

Ernie Banks and Stan Musial, and New Balance shoes “made a kid’s dream come true by making some all black spikes with the special tongue, as well as the ‘Benny the Jet’ @pf_flyers cleats.

“Am curious as to why @mlb is spending time and money enforcing this now when they haven’t done it previously
