MLB throwback/special uniform thread

Recommended Posts

Can we make this the thread dedicated to throwbacks/special uniforms (like the Red Sox' special jerseys commemorating the marathon bomobing victims or the memorial day came stuff)?

For example: the Rockies' Turn Back the Clock Day was on April 16 against the Mets, throwing back to the very first Rockies game in 1993. They wore grey at this game even though it was at Coors field.

I would like to see where this goes...no pictures to show it, but the Rangers wore their 1970s road uniforms at home against the Tigers last season. I thought it was odd to wear a road uniform at home, but I think it was good for fans to see them.

Also, the Rockies need to return to a look similar to their inaugural road uniforms.

The Brewers and Twins will be wearing these 1948 throwbacks in Minnesota on May 30th:

Yes, the Twins will be wearing road St. Paul Saints uniforms at Target Field. And if the Brewers' uniforms look like the Braves, that's because Milwaukee was in its second year as Boston's top farm team after forty-five years as an independent club.

And while we're at it, the Brewers hosted the Cardinals in a TBTC event at Miller Park on 5/5. They wore 1913 uniforms to honor the old minor league Brewers' first pennant.

More on that event here. I covered it extensively on my blog because I first suggested it to the Brewers and consulted on the uniforms.

Just lucky, really.

I had tried to pitch ideas to the Brewers in the past as early as 2002, but never got anywhere.

Then last year I was interviewed by a Milwaukee journalist last year about my blog. I mentioned to him in passing that I was going to pitch a centenary throwback, he thought it was a great idea and knew the guy at the Brewers who could make it happen. He put me in touch, and I got to make the pitch.

I gave them some reference material, and they did an amazing job with it:

Bravers set is beautious. Nike once again comes through with the logo creep on the baselayer.

Yeah, but not in the games.

If we're going to include travel wear, then we could populate the entire thread with Rays deliciousness. Wonder what they'll do this year?

Ohhh, my bad. Interpreted that as in game. Guess all that minor league crap is confusing me.

What they wear now is about as close as you can get.

Well there are a few things they could change to get closer to the original look...

The '93 roads and the 94-99 roads are so much better than the current Rockies road set.

Neither the Cubs nor the Reds are wearing any camo today. They are wearing red vs. blue though. I'm guessing they did this on purpose instead of wearing the camo.

That's weird. Both the hats and jerseys for those teams are available to buy on MLB.com. Maybe they're wearing them tomorrow?
