Today is the last day of spring break for my eldest son and I'm attempting to string an electric guitar with a locking tremelo. The key word is attempting. I flicked on MLB's nightly highlight/recap show and Barry Larking and Joe Magrane were discussing ugly recent baseball uniforms. To be fair they were also giving kudos to a few most notably San Diego's camo uni's. Barry mentioned that the players hated the Reds' white with red striped caps from a few years ago. I hadnt really thought about the Reds uniforms too much, really. I grew up with the polyester of the Big Red Machine and that was pretty much as bland as bland gets. I was thrilled when the ballclub decided to change their uniforms a while back and count me as one who actually liked the sleeveless jerseys. What i DONT like is the batting practice jerseys usually donned on Sundays. it seems almost all clubs do this now and it looks bush league. (i gotta keep plugging my suggestion that Sundays be "Turn Back The Clock" days with the ballpark, and ballclub, taking on an olde tyme feel...)
So........what is your favorite Reds uniform? And what are your best and worst jerseys, current and past, from other ballclubs?
(I'm counting on someone with expertise in posting photographs to get a nice shot of the mid seventies Chicago White Sox uniforms....the v-neck butterfly collar jersey is so choice. And I'm still stunned that they actually wore shorts for regular season games!)
