I freakin’ love this. “Oh, you didn’t have a team in the ’70s, preventing you from having all the throwback uniform fun?” Simple solution. Make one up! It’s rather glorious. A great look, and just one more reason to love Joe Maddon…posing like a boss. If you’ve been a lobster for long, you know I love me some throwbacks as noted here and here. The Rays’ll be playing the Tigers when they wear these. Read all about it here.
Oh, and if you don’t think the designers of these unis were staring at photos of the 1979 Padres when they made these… you probably rode the short bus to school.
