That time Rand Paul wore a baseball uniform to a speech

(CNN) - Sen. Rand Paul's unconventional style in politics apparently extends to his wardrobe, as well.

The Kentucky Republican delivered a speech Wednesday morning while wearing a baseball uniform–white pants and all.

Paul spoke at the Leadership Institute just outside of Washington, D.C. at a 7:30 a.m. ET breakfast.

Wearing a red and white jersey with "Republicans" emblazoned across his chest, Paul had been practicing earlier in the morning for the upcoming Congressional Baseball Game for Charity.

He was also sporting a Western Kentucky University Hilltoppers hat. The university is based in Bowling Green, where Paul worked as an ophthalmologist before winning election to the Senate.

Paul later tweeted about his practice session, saying it was the GOP team's first meet-up before the June 25 game.

The potential presidential candidate has been known to dress down at times. During his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference, for example, he wore jeans with his suit jacket and tie.

    That's it? The ability to dress one's self is a qualification?
    If he dressed to reflect his ultra conservative views and not this phony "libertarian" image, which he is not, he would be sporting a gray suit and brief case with Bibles in it.

    In other words, he didn't shower after his workout and went straight to the place to make his speech. I can see that the guy shaking his hand is trying to be polite about keeping his distance. Nice sneer, too.

    He is unconventional in his wishful thinking that people are going to play by the rules and those that fall can always pick themselves up. What laughable ideas are those because not everyone can do that. It is easier for a single white male with no attachments to do it than anyone else because of social conventions and stereotypes.
