Supply chain issues have impacted all sorts of things recently. That apparently includes the Philadelphia Phillies and their uniforms.
The Philadelphia Phillies aren’t having great luck getting the uniforms they had planned into their clubhouse. Apparently, supply chain issues have found a way to ruin what the Phillies were planning to wear.
That’s right. The Phillies were apparently unable to get the cream uniforms they were wanting to wear on Sunday.
Supply chain issues apparently impact Major League Baseball teams similar to the way they’ve impacted your grocery store trips and online shopping orders from the past few months. You’re not able to get that car battery you were hoping to buy online? Well, that sucks. You should join a club with the Phillies because they weren’t able to get the uniforms they wanted to wear.
According to a report by MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki, the uniforms have been delayed. What’s going on with the delay?
Philadelphia Phillies’ uniforms apparently impacted by supply chain issues
Apparently, the uniform supplier wasn’t “able to deliver the uniforms in time,” Dave Buck, an executive vice president for the Phillies, told Zolecki. According to Zolecki’s article, Buck informed him the supplier is “backed up and doing the best they can.”
And that’s all anyone can really hope for right now, right? Can anyone really be upset about apparent supply chain issues with the way things have gone in the world over the past couple of years? The uniforms will show up when they show up. Assuming they show up.
Hopefully, they’ll show up sooner rather than later. Along with some of the other uniforms that the Phillies plan on wearing. Apparently, those cream uniforms aren’t the only ones that haven’t arrived just yet.
According to Zolecki, Philadelphia’s “retro powder blue uniforms” that are worn for home games on Thursdays haven’t arrived either. There’s not even an ETA established for either set of uniforms.
That’s less than ideal.
