For me, seeing him in anything but a Reds uniform is weird.

I don't know whether this is an Old-Timers' Day. If it is, why Garagiola is outfitted in a Yankee uniform rather than a Cardinal uniform is a mystery. Though perhaps he was brought in by the Yankees as some kind of special instructor.

 

Garagiola had been in the Yankees' broadcast booth in 1965 and 1966; but he never played for the team. It is very strange to see a former Major Leaguer wearing a uniform of a team that he never played for, coached, or managed.

Non-traditional take on "wrong" uniform:

 

Willie McGinest wearing a '93 Patriots uniform at the '94 Rookie photo shoot; note Willie's wearing a red facemask when the red-numbered set was worn with gray facemasks in '93.
