This season we've seen minor league baseball teams in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle uniforms, Ghostbusters uniforms, and even Star Wars uniforms. However, the Gary Southshore Railcats of the American Association may have topped them all with their introduction of Michael Jackson-themed jerseys.

Since the King of Pop was born in Gary, Indiana, the team decided to honor the music legend with uniforms that re-create his famed red-and-silver jacket from the "Beat It" music video (sadly, the jerseys do not come with jheri curls).

Even better, both the player names and uniform numbers will have a faux "shimmery" pattern. The uniforms will be auctioned off to charity after the game.
