Milwaukee pitcher Zack Greinke made a pinch-hit appearance Saturday for the Brewers. Greinke put down a sacrifice bunt in the fifth that moved Jonathan Lucroy over to second. As odd as it was to see a pitcher pinch hit, what was stranger was seeing Greinke wear a different jersey from everyone else:
The Outside Corner explains that Greinke was wearing the “Bierbrauers” uniform which the Brewers have set aside for German Heritage Day at Miller Park on Sunday. Nobody knows if Greinke wore the jersey on purpose or by accident, but now we know what to look forward to Sunday (in addition to the Craig Counsell bobblehead). Hey, at least this time the jersey screw up was a players’ fault and not the equipment manager’s.
