Boulder Collegians

The Boulder Collegians, a summer collegiate baseball team based in Boulder, Colorado has powder blue v-neck pullover jerseys. Unfortunately, they don't have matching pants. To truly grow the game, the team needs powder blue sansabelt baseball pants to complete the look. A look that is reminiscent of the Sacramento Kings retro powder blue uniforms.

2016 Seattle Mariners

On June 25, 2016 at Safeco Field, the Seattle Mariners hosted the St. Louis Cardinals in a Turn Back the Clock game. They went back to the year 1984. That means the Mariners wore the 2016 version of their home 1981-86 uniforms, v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband. The Cardinals wore the 2016 version of their 1984 road powder blues. This was just the second time the Mariners wore their 1981-86 home uniforms. The only other time was July 1, 2011 in a game against the Padres. It's no secret that those are my favorite Mariners uniforms! The royal blue and gold color scheme, the pullover jerseys and beltless pants and of course the trident on the jersey wordmark as well as the star trident caps! Just a great look. Bring back the trident! Make Baseball Fun Again! The Ultimate Baseball Look is also the Fun Baseball Look. Grow the game.

2012 St. Louis Cardinals

On August 4 and 5, 2012, the St. Louis Cardinals celebrated the 30th anniversary of their 1982 World Series team by wearing throwback uniforms against the Milwaukee Brewers. On August 4, 2012, the Cardinals wore the 2012 version of the home white 1982 uniform, v-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with the striped waistband. The Brewers wore the 2012 version of their 1982 road powder blues. The next night, August 5, 2012, the Cardinals wore the 2012 version of their 1982 road powder blues at home. The fit both games was baggy because that's just how Majestic does things.

2016 San Francisco Giants

On June 18, 2016, the San Francisco Giants played at Tropicana Field vs the Tampa Bay Rays in a Turn Back the Clock game. The Giants wore the 2016 version of their 1978 uniforms. Orange v-neck pullover jerseys and white sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband. Unfortunately, they didn't wear white baseball spikes like the 1978 Giants did. They did wear black stirrups and orange sanitary socks. The length of the pants was off, but Majestic has never been able to get that right. Darrell Evans, in a Giants uniform from the late 1970s for a comparison.

Midland Angels

As mentioned previously, from 1973-88, the California Angels were one of the best dressed teams in baseball during that span, so it's not surprising that their affiliates also looked good. The Midland Angels had uniforms patterned after their parent club and despite that the California Angels regrettably switched to button-front shirts and belted pants in 1989, the Midland Angels continued to wear real baseball uniforms, pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands, the Ultimate Baseball Look through at least the 1991  season. Some of the players and coaches for the Midland Angels during that time, included Fernando Valenzuela, Joe Maddon, Tim Salmon, Devon White and Mark McLemore. Another Angels affiliate, the Palm Springs Angels, also had a similar look and the coaching staff included former San Diego Padres outfielder Gene Richards. The fans want to see the uniforms again!!!
