Here I am sitting at home on a rainy Memorial Day and I put on the Cubs V Astros game on ESPN. There was a ground out to first and I saw it, an Umpire wearing jeans while calling the action. Was it casual day out at Wrigley? Did i miss something here because I thought they always had to wear special attire. Am I the only one who noticed this?

This could be one of those situations where the umpires gear did not get to the next city in time. But usually they wind up wearing some apparaell from the home team.

Yep, the plane with their gear was late due to weather, so the men in blue got to ump in style. Why they don't let them just go out in their boxers I do not know.

This wasn't as fun as the time in Atlanta where the gear managed to get lost and the umps, as Grimis alluded to, got to wear Braves gear from the team shop. You'd think the club could find something for them to wear other than a navy cap with the script "A" on it, but noooooo.

And you thought the Braves pitchers got an enlarged strike zone BEFORE...
