It was announced earlier this week that the Star Tribune Homer Hanky will be back for 2019. It was unveiled this morning at 6am on WCCO TV. You'll be able to get the 2019 Homer Hanky starting this afternoon at Cub Foods locations around Minnesota. If you can't make it Cub Foods, you can buy them online HERE. It looks like the Homer Hanky will sell for $3.
So why are the Homer Hankies not white? In a Star Tribune article they said, "Why move away from white? Our hands were forced. Major League Baseball rules now prohibit white “in-stadium rally towels.” It’s been referred to as the “Homer Hanky Rule.” The no-white rules apply to in-stadium signage and graphics as well, to prevent distracting players from seeing clearly the white baseball in play."
