Baseball uniforms

Have you ever wondered why baseball managers wear uniforms during games? Basketball is suit and tie. Football is slacks and sweater. But baseball you look no different than the rest of the team. What's up with that? Looks sort of... ummm... errr... what's that word I'm looking for... on the tip of my tongue... oh yeah - STUPID. Stupid stupid stupid. I just don't get this one at all. These coaches do realize they're not getting into the game, don't they? Are they thinking of themselves as a last resort option if the game is going down to the wire and you've burnt through your entire roster? I can see it now... "Well folks, it doesn't get any better than this. Here we are, the 7th and deciding game of the World Series. Yankees and Braves are tied at two apiece in the bottom of the ninth with two outs and nobody on. Not sure who Joe Torre is going to send to the plate. Wait a minute... Could it be? I must be halucinating. Why it looks like Joe Torre is sending in none other than himself. Hey, it's a darn good thing he's already got that uniform on..." Just for kicks, I think the NFL should require coaches to wear the uniform too, helmets and pads included. Why should baseball have all the fun?
