In minor league sports, it isn't easy to fill up an arena or ballpark on a night-to-night basis. First of all, you're in a smaller market, and secondly, you don't have the superstar names of a professional club to help you sell tickets. Essentially, if you're in charge of a minor league team, you have to be creative. You have to be able to figure out ways to appeal to the fans that other teams aren't figuring out. If you want to create a loyal customer base, you need to be the one to reach out to them. Often times, they won't make the first move.
With that thinking in mind, countless minor league teams in both hockey and baseball have found new and interesting ways to interact with their fans or create some buzz for their franchise. You hear of crazy promotional nights all the time in the minor leagues: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Christmas, and even selfies have all taken their turn as a draw for the fans. But, more importantly, they've also been put on the jerseys.
As you can tell from The 20 Most Outrageous Minor League Uniforms, these smaller franchises have no filter about what they put on their jerseys. If it looks good and has the potential to go viral, then it gets the green light. But what do you think of these shirts? Are they shameful, shameless, or spectacular? Take a look for yourself.
