In 2010, Milwaukee Brewers affiliate the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers special uniform theme that season was "Brewers Sunday". They wore powder blue v-neck pullover jerseys inspired by the powder blue pullover jerseys the Brewers wore from 1978 thru the 1984 season, most famously in 1982 when the Brewers won the American League pennant.

Robin Ventura wearing a powder blue 1982 Milwaukee Brewers uniform that was originally intended for Brewers Hall of Famer Robin Yount during the 2002 MLB All-Star festivities at Miller Park in Milwaukee. Pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands are so popular, players from different teams are wearing other player's uniforms. The power, the appeal of what we know as the Ultimate Baseball Look!
The Clinton Giants, former Single-A affiliate from the Midwest League of the San Francisco Giants, wore it appears, gray versions of the San Francisco Giants 1977-82 uniforms. V-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands. The following pics are from the 1983 season, I believe.
Is there such a thing as the Ultimate Softball Look? Well, if there is, the University of Texas at Arlington's softball team would be a good example of it. The Mavericks' softball uniforms resemble the greatest uniforms of the New York Mets, pullover jerseys with pinstripes and racing stripes. Unlike the New York Mets however, the Texas-Arlington softball team has the good sense on wearing sansabelt pants with striped waistbands. For that reason, these uniforms are superior to the 1986 Mets! Good job Texas-Arlington softball.

The Notre Dame College Prep baseball team in Niles, Illinois, has green v-neck pullover jerseys with racing stripes made by Under Armour. Under Armour takes over as MLB's uniform supplier in 2019. Can you imagine how overjoyed people would be if they brought back not only pullover jerseys to baseball, but pullover jerseys with racing stripes too? That would be incredible. The people are rooting for good things to finally happen.
