Glitz and glamor: Steve "Rainbow" Trout — crafty veteran southpaw, slave to fashion. Whether on the red carpet or the hill, the man was dressed to kill. Look at him. The blond afro-mullet stuns, reminiscent of a young Larry Bird or Toby Keith. Those sunglasses may look like ones you'd find on a plastic spindle at Target, but oh no, my friend. These custom-made shades might turn away UV rays, but never the ladies. The blue velour windbreaker on top of the long-sleeve blue flannel T-shirt is a daring combo — one that only Rainbow could pull off. The man even makes baseball pants look sexy.
Not making this up: Trout wrote a book about his life and that of his father, Paul "Dizzy" Trout, called "Home Plate: The Journey of the Most Flamboyant Father and Son Pitching Combination in Major League History."
