Ben Zobrist asks MLB for leniency on rule for shoe color

3:18 PM ET

CHICAGO — Chicago Cubs veteran Ben Zobrist is publicly asking Major League Baseball to lighten the restrictions regarding the color of his spikes after receiving a letter of warning from the league.

Zobrist took to Instagram to plead his case.

Dear @mlb, I still like you but this is rediculous. For the last two years, I have worn black spikes exclusively at Wrigley Field for Day games to pay homage to the history of our great game, and now I am being told I will be fined and disciplined if I continue to wear them. When I was a kid, I was inspired by highlights of the greats such as Ernie Banks and Stan Musial in the 1950s-60s and was captured by the old uniforms and all black cleats with flaps. @newbalancebaseball 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. I am curious as to why @mlb is spending time and money enforcing
