California Angels - Mike Trout

On July 17, 2011, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim played a 'Turn Back the Clock' game at the Oakland Athletics. Each team supposedly wore uniforms based on uniforms from the mid-eighties. Back then, the team, then known as the California Angels wore v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband, we now know it as the Ultimate Baseball Look! Unfortunately, the Angels wore oversized pullover jerseys and belted pants. Flash forward to August 29, 2014, the Angels once again played a 'Turn Back the Clock' game and wore "retro" uniforms. This time, they wore both v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband. Of course, since Majestic is MLB's uniform supplier, the jersey, though more tailored than the 2011 game, was still on the baggy side and the pants were long and baggy as well.

Compare Mike Trout's California Angels uniform with that of Wally Joyner, who played with the California Angels during the Golden Age of the Baseball Uniform.
