Minor league baseball gimmick jerseys are accelerating toward complete absurdity at a truly terrifying pace. The latest abomination is from the Norfolk Tides.

Those are the uniforms the Tides will wear Friday. They're supposed to make the players look like lawn gnomes. Instead it makes them look kind of like they're wearing a bib.
The Tides will also give out gnome-themed figurines of manager Ron Johnson, who does not look like a gnome.
The giveaway is sponsored by John's Tax Services, and somehow not by that travel website with the gnome in its commercials.
