I was channel surfing for a few minutes this evening, and ESPN had some highlights of the College World Series this past week.
The Florida State Seminoles have several different uniforms, but this version has to be the most awesome in college baseball:
The “font” of the player numbers on these uniforms looks exactly like the ones on the Seminoles football and basketball uniforms. Though what’s underneath the baseball uniforms is a lot different than what’s underneath the football and basketball uniforms in Tallahassee.
And that leads me to this point: College baseball is a whitopia by American team sports standards*. I’m sure there is a sociological-political reason for that, but a search of the authoritative source on sociological wherefores in American civilization, Steve Sailer, yields nothing. My guess is that MLB teams love those “16-year old” Dominicans, so if you’re white and not a can’t miss prospect a la Bryce Harper, your best shot is to angle for a college scholarship.
* – I can hear the peanut gallery in the back row screaming from the top of their lungs, “Noooooo! Don’t let the dork in Orlando with a fax machine find that out!”
