A four-for-one in this video:

 

 

Hall of Famers Luke Appling, Pee Wee Reese, Al Kaline, and Warren Spahn in pullovers.

 

Mr. Kaline played the final three years of his career in with the beltless pants/pullover jersey combo of the Detroit Tigers road uniforms in the early 1970s.

Hank Aaron played the last several seasons of his career in pullover jerseys (and with the Brewers, that plus the beltless pants combo).

Bob Gibson in the pullover/beltless Cardinals uniform. He wore this for five years, from 1971 to 1975, but it still seems so wrong.

If there's ever a massive blow to having managers/coaches wear uniforms on the field, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better one than this image.

He looks like somebody's uncle won a sweepstakes where you get to sit on the sidelines in full uniform. I guess they couldn't find him a navy blue bar for his "facemask". 

 

He actually used to take that mask with him from team to team since they stopped making it.
