It hasn't been hard to spot Detroit Tigers pitcher Max Scherzer in the middle of all the team's champagne celebrations this month. The right-hander, who has heterochromia iridum (two different colored eyes), was recently gifted with a pair of mismatched goggles by his girlfriend Erica May.  Scherzer attracted attention after wearing them for the ALDS party over Oakland and then donned them again when the Tigers clinched a berth in the World Series on Thursday night.

If someone started mass producing these for sale, it's safe to say they'd move a few in Motown. Scherzer was sterling in the 8-1 clinching victory over the New York Yankees in Game 4 of the ALCS, striking out 10 and allowing only one run over 5 2/3 innings. This will be the first World Series for the 28-year-old and it could come against a team Scherzer is pretty familiar with if the St. Louis Cardinals can close out their win in the NLCS. Scherzer grew up in the St. Louis area and played college ball at Mizzou.

Scherzer's eyes have inspired a lookalike bobblehead doll, a parody Twitter account and a spot on the list of famous people with heterochromia.  His two-toned peers include Mila Kunis, Jane Seymour and Dan Akroyd, though Scherzer's case is so pronounced that he stands out from almost every one on that list.

He's probably the only one with a custom pair of champagne goggles, too.

Make sure all your bases are covered this postseason ...
