Seeing some old guy waddle to the mound in striped flannel pajamas is pretty ridiculous. And a majorly missed marketing opportunity. Put coaches in knit or other casual shirts with team logos, and fans might buy more. (You can pretty much buy anything with a team logo these days.) Theory was you needed a uniform to walk onto the field. (a) Who says? (b) In these days of electronics, why let them go to the mound anyway? Call the pitcher on a cell phone with league-limited minutes … and a hooked-up feed for fans to hear. Put it on a delay if need be, to keep instructions secret from other team till after the pitch or batter.
