  • Polyester uniforms

    Looking at old uniforms in another thread made me think when was the first time teams went from having those old wool uniforms and went with the polyester ones? And who was the first team to use them. I know must of been sometimes in the 70's I know why I can't imagine how the played in those heavey wool uniforms during the summer.

    I thought it was the Pirates on 7/16/1970
    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

      '70 the Pirates did indeed have the first polyesters, St. Louis and a couple of others added them the next year
