Why do Umpires Wear Blazers?


I got a question. Why the fuck do umpires wear blazers? They zoomed in for a second during the Yankees/M’s game and it just struck me. How impractical is that? Its got the 2 buttons and lapels everything. And they rock their protective gear underneath it all right? So that thing has gotta be fucking huge.

Could legitimately be the silliest thing I’ve ever seen.  I mean the homeplate umpire is getting ready in the clubhouse like – “Cup? Check. Shin guards? Check. Chest protector? Check. Mask? Check. 2 button sport coat from Friar’s Club? Got it. Now lets go out there and umpire a 4 hour baseball game.”
