Players in the "wrong" uniforms

Recommended Posts

Photo of George Hendrick during his 69 game stint with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1985:

That photo of Hendrick always cracks me up, especially when I see him coaching the Rays on TV. His players are too young or weren't born to remember, but Hendrick basically tanked his only season with the Bucs. He wasn't happy about being traded to Pittsburgh, so Hendrick loafed whenever possible, but still collected his paycheck. The term "Jogging" George Hendrick was coined to describe his lack of effort at the plate and in the field. Talk about letting down your teammates! If you or I had pulled that stunt at a new company we would have been fired quickly. The Pirates had bad teams in the mid 80s before the revival later in the decade, but that was no excuse for the unprofessional conduct by Hendrick that year.

Kansas City Chiefs legend Len Dawson as a Pittsburgh Steeler in the late 1950's:

Nick Saban... University of Toledo head coach, 1990.

I find it interesting that Nick Saban head coached University of Toledo, and Urban Meyer coached Bowling Green. Two rivals, two mac schools, two of the greatest NCAA coaches.

I've also attended both schools haha

Not only is this the wrong uniform for Morneau, it's also the wrong number:

Then, he changed to 66, so 2 wrong uniforms:

He was 33 in Minnesota, so he just doubled it. Originally he started as 27 in Minnesota, but changed to 33 in honor of Patrick Roy.

I think it's safe to say Morneau's wearing 66 at least in part for Super Mario.

I hope he threw up a little bit when he put that stuff on. Just a little bit, and only once. I don't blame him for taking the job and I wish him luck, but damn that stings.

Hendrick loafed in San Diego too, he was generally a malingerer during his career. It's amazing he is now coaching.

....actually, I had forgotten John Kruk's cameo in "The Fan" so that makes this even more of a player in the wrong jersey!
