While manager of the Yomiuri Giants, Japanese home run king Sadaharu Oh demanded the team's uniforms included pullover baseball jerseys! Who is going to argue with that? Former Montreal Expos outfielder Warren Cromartie had joined tbe Giants by then. People of every generation simply prefer pullover jerseys over anything else in the world! There's no debate!

On June 26, 2010, the Oakland A's hosted the Pittsburgh Pirates in a Turn Back the Clock game wearing the Fort Knox gold uniforms of the 1973 World Series champion A's. Gold v-neck pullover baseball jerseys and gold sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband. Unfortunately, Majestic, the uniform supplier, made the uniforms, especially the jerseys, too loose. If done the right way, with a proper fit, this could be a viable alternate uniform for the A's once again.

San Diego Padres - Bring Back the Brown
The San Diego Padres - Bring Back the Brown movement is almost as popular as the Seattle Mariners' Bring Back the Trident and Repeal the Teal campaigns!
The San Diego Padres greatest home uniform was from 1980-83, with honorable mention to the San Diego Padres home uniform of 1978. Both those uniforms include pullover baseball jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands. The Padres best and most popular logo is the Swinging Friar. Why not bring all of this back full-time? The Padres are such a boring, nondescript franchise. Make it fun!
Wear the 1980-83 uniforms once again with the 1978 home uniform as an alternate.
Wear caps with the Swinging Friar logo full-time.
Bring back the satin jacket.
San Diego Padres - Bring Back The Brown!
The Oakland A's 1973-82 Sunday home uniform consisted of a white or "wedding gown white" v-neck pullover baseball jersey and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped elasticized waistband, a very classy Ultimate Baseball Look. The look, the uniforms that bridged the dominant A's teams that won 3 consecutive World Series from 1972-74, led by Reggie Jackson, Catfish Hunter, Vida Blue, Rollie Fingers etc. to the "Billy Ball" teams in the early 1980s of Tony Armas, Mike Norris and a young Rickey Henderson. The people in the East Bay and elsewhere around the world, believe in these Oakland A's uniforms.

The Hokkaido Nippon-Ham Fighters wore pullover baseball jerseys during a 2016 Legend Series. As expected, the jerseys looked better than anything the Fighters had worn for many years. Supposedly, the pullover jerseys were based on uniforms originally worn in 1974.

A Toronto Blue Jays v-neck pullover jersey with just the Blue Jays logo on the front. I don't know the history of this jersey, whether it was a stadium giveaway once upon a time or a DIY project. It is being sold on eBay at this time.

The Washington Nationals, who began play in 2005 after moving from Montreal, have never worn real baseball uniforms. The Expos, unfortunately, never wore real baseball uniforms either. Apart from the Players Weekend series in 2017, the Nationals have never worn actual jerseys in a game. The CCSLC is known for general unproductiveness and incessant trolling, but once in a blue moon, something worthwhile will turn up there. Baseball uniform concepts for the Washington Nationals by the user "Djruggs". They contain a home uniform, a road uniform and an alternate uniform. All uniforms contain v-neck pullover baseball jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands. I'm not a fan of the whole Washington Nationals brand in the first place, but if that franchise wore real baseball uniforms, I'd imagine they would look similar to these concepts.

A Kenner Starting Lineup Ken Griffey Jr. ornament in a Seattle Mariners trident baseball uniform. The figure is depicted wearing a pullover baseball jersey and sansabelt baseball pants. This would be a welcomed addition to any Christmas tree! The holiday season is a great time to Repeal the Teal!

Bo Jackson played for the Memphis Chicks, a Kansas City Royals minor league affiliate in 1986. While there, he wore a button-front shirt during play. In recent years, a Memphis Chicks Bo Jackson jersey has been made available for purchase. Since people are naturally turned off by button-front or button-up baseball "jerseys", the Bo Jackson Memphis Chicks jersey is the more popular and socially acceptable v-neck pullover style.

The University of Miami Hurricanes baseball team's uniforms include v-neck pullover jerseys. It's great to see baseball programs phasing out, if not eliminating button-up nonsense altogether! Coral Gables, Florida, like the rest of the world, is pullover jersey country!
