It was truly a damaged mind that came up with the idea for MLB’s 1999 “Turn Ahead The Clock” promotion. But that’s nothing compared to Eriq Jaffe, who explains his video game uniform modifiction obsessions at Paul Lukas’ excellent Uni Watch.

And with all due disrespect to the original designer of the Mets jersey and hat shown above, The Mr. Blackwell Award for ugliest baseball garments of the modern age might well go to the Brockton Rox, who promise “Kiss inspired jerseys” on Gene Simmons’ birthday, August 25 (another tip from Uni Watch).

There’s no comment yet from Kiss’ highly litigious bassist, but presumably he’ll enjoy adding an independent minor league franchise to his portfolio.
