Alternate uniforms in the World Series?

OK, so I wondered this the last two years, but the Cards and Stros got swept so quickly I never did get an answer. I am a hat freak to the point where I have purchased a New Era 59Fifty with the World Series patch (like the players wear) since 1997. Last year I picked up an Astros Brick Alt with the World Series patch, and the year before I almost got a Cardinals alt bird on bat hat with the patch. My question is, had those two teams had home games for the world series on alternate days (Cards Sunday, Stros Saturday, I think) do you think they would have even worn them? Now I know no one can really know the answer, but im really curious more about another thing. If the Cards were to have a Sunday home game for the WS (if they even make it) do you think theyd wear the alt hats, or stick to the traditional red STL hats?

BTW, I dont even know if a sunday home game is even possible, but even if it isnt an option humor me. :P Its been racking my brain for at least the last three octobers now. What do you guys think?

The Cards do not wear their alternate hat during the postseason.

The Sunday hat is worn for Sunday home games throughout the regular season (Day or night). The NLDS game 4 was on a Sunday (Oct 8) at home and they wore the red hats.

This has been the custom of previous years as well.

The Astros M.O. seemed to be to wear a new uniform combo with every game. I am sure the brick hat (and every other hat they had0 would have made an appearance. Had every season gone the distance, they would have eventually had to break out these:

Speaking on this topic, I don't think the Stros wore the road grays in the world series last year. They just wore the red alt.

The Astros wore the gray tops in Game 1.

You may be thinking of the Division Series and LCS, when the Astros wore the brick cap/solid white combo at home on Saturdays (as they do in the regular season) and the black cap/brick top at home on Sundays (as they do in the regular season). The Astros wore the black cap/pinstripe combo for both of their home games in the World Series (as they do for all midweek home games in the regular season). Since the White Sox were home for the weekend WS games and since they would have been at home for games 6 and 7 had the series gotten that far, there was not going to be an appearance of the brick Astros hat in the Series.

The brick Astros cap (along with the Cards alt with the bat birds) with the WS patch is a product of merchandising, plain and simple.

It looks like the MLB Shop has the Cards alternate hat with the WS logo patch on the side.

I don't know if it would be used but it will be for sale.

Maybe a collecter's idem?

I hate this hat for one reason and one reason only, either that is the biggest cardinal on earth, or it is perched on a really small bat.

No Alt hats, no alt uniforms in this years WS.

Just whites and greys. Enjoy it.

Imo the Cards should design an alt jersey, prefferably navy, to go with that hat. Its just too nice of a hat to be half assed and worn with the home jerseys. Nothing wrong with the home jerseys, they just go with the red hat, as the greys go with the navy hat. Kinda makes a bastard stepchild (huh?) of one of the best hats in the league.
