Winning Ugly (eBook)
A Visual History Of The Most Bizarre Baseball Uniforms Ever Worn
de Todd Radom
Sobre o livro
Baseball, our national pastime. Every fan has memories of their teams incredible victories and anguishing defeats. We remember the home runs, the walk-off wins, and the moments that will last a lifetime.We also remember those things which we wish we could forget: the errors, the mental mistakes . . . and the ugly uniforms.
In an ode to those eyesores, Todd Radom has collected and chronicled some of the swing-and-misses weve ever seen on the baseball diamond. Remember when the Chicago White Sox thought wearing shorts in 1977 was a good idea? How about when the Baltimore Orioles wore their all-orange jerseys in 1971? Do you remember the 1999 Turn Ahead the Clock campaign? Or the most recent all-camo jerseys of San Diego Padres?
Yes, there is much to talk about when it comes to the odd uniform decisions teams have made over the years. But just like theres love out there for French bulldogs or Christmas sweaters, ugly uniforms hold a warm place in the heart of all baseball fans.
Sure they didnt affect wins and losses (unless you mention Chris Sale), but a fans love and ire goes well beyond the current standings. So whether your team appears inUgly Baseball Uniforms or not, fans of the sport will enjoy reliving the moments most teams would like to forget.
