Baseball players wear sliding shorts under their uniforms to protect them.
The White Sox wore Bermuda's for 3 games in '76 but it seemed the jeering they got from opposing players was enough to never let it happen again.

Well, tennis really is the sport where temperature seems to be more of an issue than others. It's an endurance sport, typically played in the blazing sun. The recent US Open (though often having late-night matches) was notable for the crazy temperatures and oppressive humidity. Courtside commentators were changing shirts three times per match. Players were soaked through with sweat 20 minutes into each match. John Millman in his match with Djokovic had to just walk off to change his entire outfit, because he was so soaked that he was leaving dangerously-slippery puddles of sweat on the court.
