These uniforms are coming back for one season.
The Chicago White Sox are going the throwback route again. After wearing their 1972 throwbacks all of last season, they’ll don the 1983 set for their Sunday home games.
This time period takes back to one of the team’s most successful seasons. The team won 99 games but lost in the ALCS. But regardless, this is a great money grab for the fans and it brings back a uniform set that was not the best, but still beloved in the town.
The red, white and blue look along with the player number on the pants is a unique look in itself. Numbers on the pants isn’t something new to baseball, but I think the White Sox wore it best. It somehow matched the perfect time period of strange uniforms and crazy ideas.
Looking good there, guys!
Last night, the A’s and Red Sox wore 1936 throwback uniforms as part of their celebration of Fenway Park’s 100th birthday. Also, in 1936, the A’s – then in Philadelphia – sold Jimmie Foxx to the Red Sox. His daughter, Nanci Foxx Canaday, was at the game.
The history of baseball is beautiful and doing something like this was amazing. As you can see by this original picture, both teams got the uniforms accurate for the most part.
I like both caps, but the A’s one is particularly nice. Since they don’t wear navy anymore, it’s cool to see something from their Philadelphia days. I have a Philadelphia throwback jersey and this cap would match it real well. And the jersey, I want to buy it too!
I just can’t wait for July 8 (my birthday) for this throwback.
