Chris Colabello wore the wrong uniform last night

Look kid, I don’t know how they do it in the Can-Am league, but here in the bigs we all dress alike:

If this were an 80s sitcom, Colabello would sit down in tears and confess that he doesn’t know how to read.

    I was never any good at “Spot the Differences” in my Highlights magazine……so what am I not seeing here?

      His jersey says “Twins” and the rest of the team’s said “Minnesota.”

        Ah, couldn’t really tell in the photos provided. Got it.

    I thought something looked funny last night, but I thought it was just his face…

    At least, the fashion police in MLB are not as bad as the fashion police in the NFL.

    Usually when a guy shows up to a softball game wearing a different uniform he ends up hitting 3 homeruns. Colabello went 0-1. Not much of a ringer.

      Well, at least he reached on an error and almost broke Betancourt’s hand off…

    Who apologizes for how ill fitting all of their unis are?

    He needs Gleeman’s teleprompter to get dressed.

    wouldn’t this be on the clubhouse manager? it’s been awhile but i believe that the players uniforms are hung in their lockers by the clubhouse manager (or their assistants/helpers) before the players even get to the stadium. maybe something was up with his “Minnesota” blue jersey and the only option was the “Twins” blue …. I would have to think that he knew as soon as he saw it hanging there that is was a different uni.

      This wouldn’t be the first time something like this has happened with the Twins.

    A Theo Huxtable dyslexia reference worked into a baseball thread…well done, Calcaterra, well done.

    same thing happened in Houston to a relief pitcher almost ten years ago. I forget who, but they were wearing their red alternates that say astros and he wore the red road alternate that said houston.
