Baseball teams are romancing the past this week. Consider the Seattle Mariners’ nice-looking new alternate jerseys and the San Diego Padres’ announcement that they’ll go retro with late ’80s brown pinstriped uniforms for five games.
One of the other more iconic retro jerseys is coming back for 2015 too — and it’s one people either seem to love or hate. The “Tequila Sunrise” Houston Astros jerseys are getting a modern spin, though not by the Astros, instead from their new Triple-A team, the Fresno Grizzlies.
Have a look:
These are some of the most colorful jerseys of the past 30 years, along with the Tucson Toros. The Astros wore these in the late ’70s and early ’80s, with lots of people just calling them “rainbow” jerseys. The Grizzlies, who are beginning their first year as an Astros affiliate, are going for the team’s most famous look right away.
Other Astros minor league teams have used these as inspiration. The Single-A Lancaster JetHawks wore striped jerseys in the same fashion last year for select games, but with different colors. The Double-A Corpus Christi Hooks wore them in 2011.
Some people, understandably, think these are too bright of a baseball uniform. But The Stew thinks they’re righteous.
