Gnomeageddon.

Every once in a while, the job can request something quirky. Friday night was that night. The assignment was to focus on the odd uniforms that the

Norfolk Tides

were wearing instead of the regular game action. The tops featured grass print at the bottom, but the kicker was a gnome beard as part of the shirts pattern. The gnome theme was to correspond with a giveaway to the first 3,000 gnome-clamoring fans.

Thanks for looking.
