Talked to an umpire working this tournament. Told me the uniform is supposed to be powder over navy for day games, and navy over gray for night games. Ball bags are suppose to reflect the pants being worn.
Talk about unfair! It's expensive enough to have multiples of everything for long tournaments, let alone multiples of two completely different uniforms. Defeats the point of "uniform".

Now, to me, that combination is butt-ugly. However, I believe the next major change in uniforms may very well lead to this combination. And will lead to the embarassment for some umpires who sweat heavily.
Powder over gray might be the least attractive, but many people are hung up on it being the least heat retentive and it is the current NFHS "uniform", so it's available.
Officiating takes more than OJT.
It's not our jobs to invent rulings to fit our personal idea of what should and should not be.
