Did the Indians wear the wrong uniforms for ‘Photo Day’?

In an item that probably only interests me and a select few others, the Indians had their ‘Photo Day’ recently. That isn’t the interesting thing of course, as teams do this every spring. The interesting part is that the team apparently was wearing last year’s uniforms.

You may remember the Indians announcing changes were being made to the team’s uniforms. Most notable among the changes was the removal of piping around the collar and down the button panels. The script Indians is also more subdued.

Except in the team pictures.

For reference, here are the new team uniforms-

So what happened?

According to the Indians, it is just what you think it is. The new uniforms simply haven’t arrived yet. Not enough for 70+ players, coaches and staff.

WFNY is assured they will be ready for opening day however.

    Oopsies but it shouldn’t come as a surprise after so many uniform changes.  Honestly I think the Indians have almost as many uniforms as the Cavaliers.  To bad it hasn’t provided the Dolans with enough money to sign a real free agent.

    I like last year’s uni’s better anyway

    Glad we got the “Dolan is Cheap” joke n right away. It’s obviously totally necessary and relevant. It’s outrageous that every Indians post on WFNY doesn’t mention how cheap our owner is actually. While reading this article, the whole time I was thinking “I bet they wore the wrong uniforms because Dolan doesn’t have a lot of money.” I was super surprised that no connection was made in the post, total oversight by WFNY. Glad I didn’t have to search to far in the comments though!

    Kudos to whoever noticed this. I never would have.

    I wonder if they had the Feller patch on.

    I really think the Indians should follow the MLS and rent out spots on their uniforms to corporations.  Better?

  • The Browns wore the wrong uniforms all year when they played away games, because they never wore their BROWN jerseys. 

    That still makes me angry.

    It they can repeat last years early season heroics Im all for it!

    we don’t get to pick what uni’s we wear on away games.

    As soon as they become relevant again it’s time to bust out the brown jerseys and orange pants baby!!!  H&H listen up: sign either 2 WRs or 1 WR and Jeff Backus then draft either Kalil or Claiborne at #4.  After that it’ll be icing on the cake for me.

    Of course, the only way to respond when its pointed out that your terrible joke is beyond hackneyed is to keep the joke going.
