Tigers Will Face These Uniforms In Tampa

By: Mike Stone

The Tigers take on the Tampa Bay Rays next weekend in St. Petersburg. The second game of the series will be throwback night at Tropicana Field, featuring a post game concert from Earth, Wind, and Fire plus both the Tigers and Rays will wear throwback jerseys from 1979.

Hmm if my memory is correct there was not a Tampa Bay Ray team in 1979, in fact the Rays did not enter the American League until 1998. However that is not stopping the Rays from having a Turn Back The Clock night where they will don what they call hypothetical jerseys that they would have worn in 1979. Some think these are lame, I actually think they are kind of cool. What say you? Here is manager Joe Maddon modeling the uniform.
