MLB's Players' Weekend is here, and so are its horrible, no good, very bad uniforms.
You'd be hard-pressed to find many in favor of this year's black and white unis, which you can take a peek at below if you haven't already seen them.
THIS JUST IN: #MLB and the MLBPA has unveiled the 2019 #PlayersWeekend uniforms. The opposite of the colourful look in years past, we've got head-to-toe monochromatic black or white across the entire league.— Chris Creamer (@sportslogosnet) August 6, 2019

Cleveland Indians manager and former Boston Red Sox skipper Terry Francona was one of the more vocal critics of this weekend's eyesores. Tito summed up his thoughts with a hilarious quote on Friday and said he wasn't going to make pitching changes because he didn't want to be seen in public.
Here's what he said, per Zack Meisel of The Athletic.
Terry Francona, on the Indians’ all-black uniforms: “What’s the slogan, ‘Let the kids play?’ Let the grown-ups look like morons.”— Zack Meisel (@ZackMeisel) August 23, 2019
Francona joked that he isn’t going to make any pitching changes because he doesn’t want to be seen in public.
Never change, Tito.
The 2004 and 2007 World Series champion does have a point. These are some of the worst-looking uniforms the league could possibly have come up with for a weekend that is supposed to be colorful and filled with personality. It's hard to blame Francona for being embarrassed to wear them.
