    article about winner.jpg

    Article about the winner. The columist actually thought the Sox were making strides into the 20th century.

    The winner at the handshake ceremony. The mascot was fired eventually from fan abuse.

    These were sent in by some fans who were making fun of the contest.

    I heard this from a different site but when Reinsdorff took over he was getting alot of complaints about the 76-81 uniforms so thats why he decided to make a contest. I have no idea why he thought these uniforms would be better.

    The creater of the uniforms was a Reds or Braves fan with no ties to Chicago except through marriage.

    Steve Carlton too.

    Veeck was actually going for a retro look with the 1976-1981 uniforms. Those 76-81 uniforms resemble uniforms from 1906. I don't think Veeck would have gone for these NASA uniforms.

    I would have to think Reinsdorff was trying to distance himself from Veeck by doing this.

    Only 1600 people participated. Whitesox reliever Ed Farmer quipped "Well thats 1600 improvements to our current uniform." Little did he know what the Sox were in for.
    Then again they could have reverted back to the softball shorts look.
