  • Weirdest Sights of a Player in Uniform

    I was looking at a picture of Casey Stengel recently and he was wearing a Brooklyn uniform (it was his original team as a player) which is a rather odd sight when you are used to seeing him in a Yankee or Met Uniform. Babe Ruth in a Brooklyn Dodger and Boston Brave uniform also pops into mind. What other famous players wearing a not commonly associated with jersey do you know of?

      Doc Gooden in an orange jumpsuit. Though as the years go by, it seems to be getting a bit more common.

        I saw a picture of Leo Durocher managing a charity game in 1948 for the PCL. He wore his Brooklyn cap and a uniform that said Los Angeles. A bit of foreshadowing.

          I agree with you theAmazingMet, seeing Ruth in a Brooklyn uniform looks weird. When I first saw a picture of him in a Brooklyn uniform I did a double take.

              On April 29, 1913, the entire Cincinnati Reds team wore Chicago White Sox uniforms during an official NL game against the Cubs.

              Doc Semmens, who had been responsible for the Reds' luggage on their road trip, accidentally left the trunk containing the team uniforms on a train platform in St. Louis. He didn't realize his mistake until the team arrived in Chicago, and managed to borrow the road outfits of the White Sox for the game.

                        One of the saddest sights ever seen in Baseball was Willie in that uni in CF in the '73 Series playing, or misplaying balls that came to him.
