Most Minor League Baseball teams run a retro night honoring a former team, but the Albuquerque Isotopes (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) may have the most popular one, with Dukes Retro Night coming up this Saturday.
In fact, it’s so popular that the team opens up the berm for seating, and tickets for that go on sale tomorrow.
This year both the Isotopes and visiting Iowa Cubs will be wearing retro uniforms, with the ‘Topes outfitted in those special throwback, mustard-yellow Dukes jerseys. To sweeten the deal for fans, Sid Bream, Greg Brock, Kevin Kennedy and Carlos Salazar will be inducted into the Albuquerque Baseball Hall of Fame in a very special pre-game ceremony. And, of course, there are the obligatory post-game fireworks.
