For the 2016 season, the New York Mets are commemorating the 30th anniversary of the 1986 World Series championship season by wearing the 2016 version of the 1986 uniforms during Sunday home games as well as the weekend of May 27-29 versus the Dodgers. That means v-neck pullover jerseys with pinstripes and racing stripes. I asked Majestic about the excessive bagginess as well as silliness in "high-cuffed" and "pajama pants" and they responded "Uniforms are tailored specifically to each players request to how they are most comfortable to play the game."

The best San Diego Padres uniforms were worn from 1980-83, pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants. We established that earlier. The best Padres brand was created in 1978. The unique and dynamic font that lasted thru 1984. Nothing else compares to that era of Padres baseball. Bring back the brown, the right way.

According to the blog, Japanese Baseball Cards, the 1972-76 Nankai Hawks baseball team, now known as the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, wore crewneck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband. Their colors were similar to the Pittsburgh Pirates during that time. As mentioned earlier in this blog, the Hawks wore throwback uniforms during the 2014 NPB season. They wore crewneck pullover jerseys and belted pants with a striped tunnel belt loop that resembled sansabelt baseball pants. Following 1976, the Nankai Hawks embraced color and it was glorious.

On June 9, 1973, the Oakland A's hosted the Detroit Tigers at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum and wore an all green baseball uniform. V-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands. A look that has been derided by some, others consider it the Ultimate Baseball Look.

The Sam Houston State Bearkats baseball team, in addition to playing on the AstroTurf of Don Sanders Stadium, one of the premiere ballparks in college baseball, also wear some nice uniforms as well! V-neck pullover jerseys by Under Armour, white, orange, and gray. We have been over this many times, but it bears repeating, everybody blessed with rational thought, prefers pullover baseball jerseys over anything else in the world. There is no debate. The one drawback is the use of belted pants. Bearkats and Under Armour, let's get some sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands ordered ASAP. Grow the game.
