Great Britain's World Baseball Classic uniforms are being called the worst ever and even a minor league team is mocking them
- Great Britain is making its first appearance at the World Baseball Classic.
- While it is a good moment for British baseball, it will be remembered for their uniforms.
Team Great Britain and Nike are taking minimalism to a new level at the World Baseball Classic, and even other teams have jokes.
Team GB qualified for the World Baseball Classic for the first time this year, marking a big moment for the sport's growth on the island. However, the milestone is being overshadowed by their comically simple uniforms.
In particular, fans have mocked the jersey for its design, which does not include a logo or number on the front and uses a basic font for the team name.
Uniform expert Paul Lukas called it "the worst jersey ever."
Using grey — the historical standard for road baseball jerseys — isn't helping. At least the home jerseys add some color to the game.
While fans on social media have ridiculed the jerseys, it gets worse when a single-A baseball team gets in on the action.
The Lake County Captains, the high-A affiliate of the Cleveland Guardians, did just that.

To make matters worse, the lettering used doesn't even seem to be produced very well.
During Team GB's game on Monday night, one of the letters fell off Ian Gibaut's jersey as he was warming up.

That, of course, led to more jokes.

And the Lake County Captains were quick to update their design.

Here is hoping Team GB plays their next game with at least the minimum 15 pieces of flair.
