On St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 1978, the Cincinnati Reds became the first sports team and obviously the first baseball team to wear special St. Patrick's Day uniforms in an exhibition game versus the New York Yankees. For a game, the Big Red Machine became the Big Green Machine. V-neck pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with the striped waistband and green trim! A very special Ultimate Baseball Look! The fans, players and media just prefer baseball that features the teams wearing real athletic wear again!
