Today is Opening Day of the 2015 Pacific Coast League season for the new look Colorado Springs Sky Sox! The Rockies prospects are gone, replaced by some future Brewers we hope can help make us forget 2014’s 54-90 clinic in indifference and terrible baseball. Go Sky Sox! Go Brewers! Yeah baseball!
So, a new season means we got to take new headshots yesterday. Below, for comparison, are a few classic shots along with my favorites from this season. Check ’em out and let us know what you think:

Those are your 2015 Colorado Springs Sky Sox. Let’s make a contest out of this, Tweet your favorite to @PengoSports with the hashtag #HeadshotMadness. We’ll announce a winner by the end of the opening homestand and there will be much rejoicing and we’ll name an award after the winner. Yeah.
In a shock move, All-World basketball player LeBron James choose to take his talents to the diamond and play the rest of the 2014 season with the Colorado Springs Sky Sox.
“If it was good enough for MJ, it’s good enough for LBJ (me, LeBron James and not that salty dead president Lydon Baines Johnson),” the publicity shy superstar was overheard saying. “Plus, I hear they’re having Rudy’s in the pressbox tonight and I sure am hungry for some proper bar-b-que, some of that sweet tea and hot damn! That creamed corn they serve. Hell. The main reason I’m going with the Sox is that creamed corn. If they didn’t have that I’d probably just go back and play hoops in Cleveland, or something stupid like that,” continued a beaming LeBron.
