I'm generally against cross-sport promotions when it comes to a team celebrating another team, but the Goldeyes aren't celebrating the Jets. They legitimately hockey-fied themselves for the game with these uniforms. TV numbers on the sleeves, hockey stripes at the bottom of the jersey, and a fun logo that is a little different than the same Goldeyes logo used every day make these uniforms unique to the Goldeyes for their promotion. There are, however, some issues.
First, don't tuck. Ever. Hockey jerseys aren't meant to be tucked at all unless you're Gretzky or Ovechkin, and the look created by the players above eliminates those glorious hem stripes. If there are hem stripes, the hockey jersey stays untucked to display said stripes. However, being baseball there are dress code rules that the teams have to follow, and tucking in is one of those rules. This might be why a "hockey night" on the ball diamond isn't the best of ideas.
If there's one thing the Goldeyes do well, though, it's their promotional uniforms. Their recent Bacon Night was a hit, and tonight's Hockey Night looked pretty solid as well. While the 5810 people in attendance didn't go home with a smile, they did get to see two of their hockey heroes toss the first pitch as Winnipeg Jets Chris Thorburn and Mark Stuart were on-hand for the ceremonial tosses! Apparently both found the plate with their throws as well!
Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!
