Wardrobe Malfunction; Cards Reliever Wears Wrong Jersey To Game
With Major League Baseball introducing several new special event jerseys, you almost can't blame players for wearing the wrong jersey, with games resembling more fashion runways than actual baseball. Granted, most of the special event jerseys, like the camouflage adorned unis worn during Monday's Memorial Day festivities, are for a good cause or tribute, like Monday's duds honoring our military heroes.
Unfortunately, Cardinals pitcher Trevor Rosenthal's patriotism went a little too far during Wednesday night's tilt against Milwaukee.
With the Cardinals dressed to the nines in their traditional gray uniforms for a mid-week meet-up with their NL Central rivals, Rosenthal, unlike his compatriots, was still decked in the Cardinals' Memorial Day duds, with his camo a star contrast from the red in his teammates' wardrobe.
Rosenthal was informed of his mishap later via text by another guy who spent a lot of time in the outfield in St. Louis (albeit in front of the fence as an outfield, rather than in the bullpen), Jim Edmonds. Currently a television color commentator for the Redbirds' home games, Edmonds notified Rosenthal that he was improperly dressed...which Rosenthal found all too surprising, claiming he had no idea that he wasn't in the right uni. Whether Rosenthal was able to change is unknown, as he did not get into Wednesday's game, a 3-1 St. Louis loss.
Well, if Rosenthal, who has 8 saves and a 2.12 ERA in 18 appearances this season, did happen to get in the game, at least he would be invisible...you know because of the camo and all...
