Athletics go all out with retro day, including uniforms, broadcast graphics


Having a throwback day of sorts isn’t exactly a new concept for Major League Baseball teams. Few, however, go all out quite like the Oakland Athletics did on Saturday.

The A’s held Retro Billy Ball Day when they hosted the Cubs, a tribute to Billy Martin’s 1981 Athletics. As usual, both teams wore era-appropriate uniforms for the contest.

The A’s TV affiliate, CSN California, even got in on the act with retro graphics.

This is awesome, and they deserve a ton of credit for going so far with it. The players also deserve credit for not taking a knife to the uniforms, which is surprisingly difficult for certain people.
