White Sox will go red

An interesting little baseball tidbit to help you get through the winter here, this one courtesy of a report from the Chicago Tribune.

Back in the 70s, the Chicago White Sox tried some crazy things with their uniforms to spice up their franchise, and now we’ll see some of that for 13 Sunday home games this season.

They will also include red hats and red socks to further confuse the fan that is going to watch a Chicago White Sox game. Look for the debut on April 15 when Prince Fielder and the Detroit Tigers come to U.S. Cellular Field.

 

What’s Maryland Wearing This Week? Week 5

Maryland will go with a pretty simple look of black-on-red-on black against Towson on Saturday.

I apologize for the delay in getting this post up, but with the madness in baseball Wednesday night, there was no time.

Coach Randy Edsall announced last night that this, to the left, would be Maryland’s uniform choice this week.

The yellow jerseys against Temple clearly did not help, so the slight change to red was inevitable.

The choice on red goes back to what Maryland used to wear before they decided to become the Oregon of the Northeast. That is a nice thing to see. Also, the small black stripe on the side is not as noticeable as the red one was on the yellow uniforms, and that is a good thing.

The black helmets and black pants have become a staple over the past three weeks. It’s hard to imagine that will stay consistent for the rest of the season.

Overall, it’s a fine look. Nothing too special to it, keeps in simple in what should be an easy victory for the Terps. Of course, I said that last week, and look at what happened.
