Minnesota Twins - Rod Carew

Rod Carew wore Minnesota Twins athletic wear from 1972-78. Pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants, what we now call the Ultimate Baseball Look! The Twins began wearing powder blue road uniforms in 1973. Rod Carew in 1972, wearing an off-white road uniform, that in the Dressed to the Nines Database was depicted as containing a button-front shirt, but that is clearly a pullover jersey. In Twins powder blues and on a 1977 cover of Time magazine, and telling Ted Williams "No, you cannot try on my athletic wear!". Proper baseball uniforms don't have buttons or belts! Rod Carew also posed with former Negro Leaguers Cool Papa Bell and Judy Johnson at the 1977 Hall of Fame Game in Cooperstown, New York.
