It was much ado about nothing according to Travis Shaw.
The interwebs went banana sangwich on Monday when ESPN televised Shaw's bat and the sticker attached to it.
It caught so much fire Shaw had to issue a Twitter response clarifying that indeed it was an Ohio State Buckeye leaf and NOT a "cannabis flower" - as the old hippie folks say.
Let this be a lesson to you doubters out there. Travis Shaw is a frickin' saint and would never promote anything except his beloved alma mater.
Wait...Shaw played college baseball for Kent State University.
Whatever, can't a guy just enjoy a little horticulture?
