As we all know by now, Great Britain’s uniforms in the World Baseball Classic are a bad joke. But that joke had a new punchline tonight, as the first “T” fell off of British pitcher Ian Gibaut’s jersey, somehow making a minimal design even more minimalist.
Here’s the moment when the wayward letter finally couldn’t take it anymore and abandoned this sorry excuse for a uniform:

While Gibaut may have given the little fella an assist, the “T” was clearly already on its way to jumping ship before Gibaut provided the final push. Huzzah!
The “T” is now free to lead a rich and fulfilling life, unburdened by being part of the worst jersey ever. Here’s hoping the rest of the letters follow this brave example.
