To Celebrate Fenway Park's 100th birthday, the Red Sox and Yankees (the same team the Sox played the day Fenway opened) will wear "throwback" 1912 uniforms. I've always enjoyed seeing the game remember its history like this.

My question here is, will the uniforms have the players numbers on the back? Of course, no team wore numbers in 1912. And maybe they won't do it for tonight's game, either but I figure if every player can take the field wearing 42 on Jackie Robinson Day, it's the same as wearing no number at all. So why not go ahead and make the throwback uniform that much more accurate?

And with today's big jumbotrons, do uniform numbers even serve much of a purpose anymore? Please note I am NOT advocating that numbers should be done away with on the uniform.
