Minor league team to wear Dorothy-inspired jerseys for Wizard of Oz night
The Seattle Mariners Double-A affiliate Jackson Generals are taking the battle for best alternate jersey to the next level with the unveiling of the team's jerseys for their "Wizard of Oz Night" promotion.
The Dorothy-inspired uniforms feature the movie heroine's iconic blue and white gingham and pigtails, as well as the team name and jersey number written out in a font that calls to mind her famed ruby red slippers.
The team has several other theme nights planned for its upcoming season, with promotions ranging from superheroes to Star Wars to a "Christmas in July night" on July 25.
