The Double-A Pensacola Blue Wahoos are leaning butt-first into their claim on the “worst uniform in sports.” In a series of self-deprecating announcements, the team unveiled uniforms that they’ll wear on their “Festival of Crabzilla” promotional night, a commemoration of a crab sandwich the team sells.
The uniforms, which include jerseys and pants in a color the team is calling “eyesore orange,” are noteworthy for including the Crabzilla logo on the backside of the pants, with one eye on each cheek.
The Crabzilla concession item was introduced in 2019 and was named Best New Food Item at any stadium in the country by Ballpark Digest. It’s a foot-high sandwich that includes a full soft-shell crab, crab remoulade, pork belly, parmesan crab mac and cheese, fried shrimp, crab pups, lettuce, and tomato served on a brioche bun over a bed of crab fries.
The Blue Wahoos unveiled the Crabzilla brand in April 2020, when the future of the minor league baseball season was still uncertain, with a logo that incorporates most of the sandwich’s ingredients, focusing primarily on an angry, anthropomorphized soft-shell crab.
The Festival of Crabzilla takes place August 11, and the uniforms will be auctioned to benefit charity.
