Jungle Jim Posted August 9, 2004 Share Posted August 9, 2004 I have noticed at least a couple of mistakes at the Dressed To The Nines baseball uniform site.One is that they show the Cincinnati Reds with a red stripe on their black shoes from 1972 until 1985. Reds players were required to wear solid black shoes with no stripes from 1972 until sometime in the early 80s (1984, I think). The players began to protest that they were losing shoe endorsements, so the team finally allowed them to have red stripes on their black shoes before switching to red shoes in 1986.The other is that there is no depiction of the Kansas City Royals black caps/helmets that they wore on the road the past few years. (Do they still? I'm not sure.) I understand that that site doesn't show alternate stuff, but these were not alternates, were they? Didn't they wear exclusively black helmets and caps for their road games?I didn't see any link at the Dressed to the Nines site to report errors. Am I just overlooking it? I guess I'm a bit surprised that no one at MLB or the Hall of Fame would have caught these mistakes, especially the Royals. I also thought it was common knowledge around baseball in the early 80s that the Reds were prohibiting stripes, but maybe I was aware just because I was a Reds fan.
