Anyone else see that?
wait, Chirinos is wearing orange nail polish for the Astros. I have never seen that, very cool.— Greg Weeks (@GregWeeksCLT) October 9, 2019
According to Geoffrey Blum, Houston Astros color commentator and former Astros player, the nail polish helps the pitcher see the catchers' signs.
Chirinos only uses nail polish on his right hand and has painted his nails in different colors since he was with the Texas Rangers.
Chirinos is expected to catch in Game 2 of the World Series.
