Does anyone know what they were throwbacks to? Nowhere in the MLB.com, ESPN.com, Detroit Freep or Detroit News storys do they reference what they are. Anyone care to guess?

It's nice to see different unis and all, but I don't really get why teams sport unis of teams that they never were. Don't get me wrong, it's cool (especially in baseball when they play five hundred games a year) to see a different uni (throwback, alternate, or whatever), but the Tigers and Indians were never those teams. They just shared the city. I understand that they honor those teams, but like I'm trying to say, they weren't ever in those unis or a previous incarnation of that team.

Sure the Indians and Tigers were never the Buckeyes and Stars, respectively, but IMHO it's a nice gesture, especially because the former Buckeyes and Stars (and other Negro League) players never got the opportunity to be MLB players. They can't right the wrong, but it's a nice way to pay homage to teams and players that MLB purposefully kept out!

The strangest had to be a few years back in Toronto when the Jays wore the uniforms of the Chatham All-Stars. Chatham isn't really near Toronto, it's a small city much nearer to Detroit!

Anyway it's nice to pay tribute to the Negro Leagues.
