Minor league team celebrates ‘The Office’ with Dwight Schrute uniforms

Tie. Check.

Dressed for work?

The Fort Wayne TinCaps are celebrating the hit TV comedy “The Office” on Friday and dressing up for the occasion by wearing a uniform straight from the Dwight Schrute collection.

The collared-shirt jersey also includes the TinCaps logo on the right breast and “Bears. Beets. Fort Wayne TinCaps” on the right sleeves — getting copyright clearance to write “Battlestar Galactica” might’ve been a chore.

The TinCaps are the Single-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, and their uniform selection plays off the look of Schrute, whose character rarely strayed from dressing in a less-than-appealing yellow shirt with a dijon-mustard-esque matching tie.

It is not known whether the theme night in Indiana will include any beet menu items as a hat-tip to the fictional assistant to the regional manager. At the very least, the evening will provide great opportunities for meme-making and references by the local broadcast crew.
