    Whitesox to wear 72 home uniforms on Sundays.

    This is pretty cool that the Sox are wearing throwback 1972 uniforms on Sundays this season. Probaly one of the best uniforms they had.

    If I could i'd post a picture of Robin Ventura in the 72 uniform alongside Bill Melton. They do look pretty good.

    I think walks are overrated unless you can run. If you get a walk and put the pitcher in a stretch, that helps, but the guy who walks and cant run, most of the time hes clogging up the bases for somebody who can run. Dusty Baker.

    Gosh, I don't recognize the White Sox these days, not a bad uniform in sight. In fact, they're pretty darn good.

    Is the sky falling?

    Those are pretty sharp looking. I usually don't like a lot of the "gimmicky" throwback styles, but these are kind of cool.

    Nice, but the red pinstripes smack too much of the Phillies.

    Snazzy! That was a great uni.
    Will they be smoking in the dugout like Dick Allen did in his '72 MVP season?

    The shirts on the 1977-1981 uniforms would be pretty cool if they didnt have those collers. I like the lettering on em. I was at the Sox game last night and I saw alot of really nice looking uniforms other fans had on.

    I hear the Whitesox will wear the 1983 uniforms on Sundays for 2013.
