Missions Team Asked for Feedback on Fiesta Jerseys & the Responses Weren't Nice

Posted By on Thu, Mar 8, 2018 at 2:02 PM

The San Antonio Missions, the Alamo City's minor baseball league team, asked the community for feedback on Fiesta-themed jerseys on its Facebook page. The responses weren't too kind.

On the post, the team said the potential jerseys would be part of the team's Autism Community Network Night at Nelson Wolff Stadium on April 28, the same night as the Flambeau parade.
While the time peg is appropriate, many Facebook users were far from impressed.
Kinder critics suggested that the team stick to its usual puzzle piece (a symbol representative of the autism community) jerseys.
The team responded in a comment, saying that the team has worn the traditional jerseys the past four years and wanted to do something fun in honor of Fiesta.

The Missions will auction the jerseys after the April 28 game. Proceeds will be donated to the Autism Community Network.
