The Chicago White Sox are bringing back the team’s 1983 uniforms as an alternate for the 2014 season, including a new tri-color cap featuring the familiar “batterman” logo.
The jerseys will feature the iconic red, navy blue and primary white pullover jersey with the block “S-O-X” across the chest, and a vintage patch on the left sleeve, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the All-Star Game, which was played at Old Comiskey Park. The throwback uniforms also will include a new retro-inspired version of the tri-color cap, with the new version featuring the popular “batterman” logo from the 1970s and 1980s.
“The positive reaction from White Sox fans and team members was undeniable last season,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We are proud to make the 1983 uniform a permanent part of the White Sox look and we are sure that the iconic ‘Winning Ugly’ jersey, along with the new retro-style ‘batterman’ cap, will be favorites for a new generation of Sox fans.”
Here’s the original 1983 uniform (the above logo comes from 1983 as well):
