Baseball Shorts vs. Hockey Pants

Clearly none of you have ever played baseball. I don't know how they played in shorts for more than 2 innings. There's a reason baseball players wear pants, and it's called sliding. I'm in phone and too lazy to look up if the Sox ever played in shorts on Astroturf, but if so DEAR GOD.

Not as many teams do anymore. I see lots of High School softball as an athletic trainer, shorts are rare for games these days. Treated many abrasions (strawberries) back in the day though.

I think baseball shorts would be a reason you'd see the sliding pants and socks combo like you see a lot in basketball now. Think pullover jerseys or a Henley and the monochrome shorts and socks. Thanks to modern science baseball shorts would work better but the aesthetic would be diminished

Would I rather walk the plank or face the firing squad?

Aesthetically, I'd go with the Cooperalls, I guess. But because of functionality and safety, I feel comfortable answering "neither."

On astroturf?

I don't know this, but I think the Sox only pulled out the shorts a couple of times and only at home.

How did shorts become the norm for hockey uniforms in the first place? On the surface, it seems kind of silly since shorts are usually associated with warmth weather.

I'm assuming it had to do with the leg pads and not wanting to / being able to put full-length pants over top of the old pads, but I'm curious if anyone knows otherwise. It just seems that pants would make more sense, even if they look dumb (and have been proven to be unsafe) since we're so used to shorts.
