Twins' rookie Colabello victim of jersey blunder
MAY 28, 2013 10:51p ET
The 29-year-old Colabello entered the game against the Brewers as a pinch hitter in the top of the ninth inning, replacing pitcher Jared Burton. Only one problem for Colabello, though: he was wearing the wrong jersey.
While the rest of his teammates donned the script " Minnesota" on the blue jerseys, Colabello wore the blue road jersey that read "Twins" on the front. The jersey mix-up seemed to help Colabello, as he reached base on a throwing error by Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez with two outs.
It was the second time Colabello has reached base in his young career since being called up from Triple-A Rochester last week. He recorded his first hit on Saturday in Detroit.
Tuesday, it was another first: his first uniform blunder.
