St. Louis Cardinals - Stan Musial

Well after his playing career had ended, St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer Stan Musial became an advocate for real, modern baseball uniforms. When the Cardinals wisely let go of archaic, 19th century, flannel uniforms with that oppressive, heavy, heat stroke inducing fabric and the constricting, clunky belts in 1971 and switched to real athletic wear, pullover jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband, Musial couldn't resist trying them on. He gloated over Yankees hero Mickey Mantle, who was still clad in the Yankees flannel clown costumes and had some fun with Cardinals player Joe Torre in the button and belt-free freedom the Ultimate Baseball Look provided.
