Perez - You Can`t Wear That Undershirt

4 years ago

Who would`ve thought that wearing the wrong undershirt could cause a sports game to be delayed? Well in the case of the Toronto Blue Jay`s game and player Luis Perez that was the case. The MLB rules state that:

"1.11 ... (2) Any part of an undershirt exposed to view shall be of a uniform solid color for all players on a team. Any player other than the pitcher may have numbers, letters, insignia attached to the sleeve of the undershirt. (3) No player whose uniform does not conform to that of his teammates shall be permitted to participate in a game."

The undershirt he had worn had silver piping down the side which is a major no-no. I personally don`t get what the big deal is. It is still the same color minus the silver piping and if you didn`t really pay attention you wouldn`t think anything of it and sure wouldn`t get offended. It isn`t like he had some rude word down his sleeve or it was a totally different color than the colors in his uniform.

Do you think this is a dumb rule?
Would you have allowed the game to start with Perez wearing the undershirt he had originally worn?
