The Top 5 Uniforms in the History of Your Texas Rangers
But they didn't look good doing it.
I know those white beanies atop their head were special Memorial Day caps, but in a word ... Godawful.
The Colonial the other day had a pink out. Baseball has a Jackie Robinson Day where every player wears No. 42. The NFL has throwback uniforms. And the Phoenix Suns wore "Los Suns" in the playoffs.
When, I ask you, did uniforms get so, well, un-uniformed?
In most ways I'm not old-mannish, but I don't like having to keep up with 13 different versions of the University of Oregon's color patterns.
Think about the best uniforms in sports: Oakland Raiders, Texas Longhorns, Michigan Wolverines, New York Yankees, Boston Celtics and, of course, your Dallas Cowboys. Traditional and, yes, mostly unchanged.
The Rangers' latest look - white and red atop blue and gray - was atrocious. But through the years they've had some nice duds.
My Top 5 Texas Rangers uniforms:
5. White home, blue and red caps, circa 1972
