ST. LOUIS (AP) — The powder-blue uniforms are back for the St. Louis Cardinals, a throwback to the “Whiteyball” era.
The Cardinals on Monday unveiled the new jersey with a blue color similar to what the team wore for away games from 1976 through 1984, perhaps most famously during the World Series-winning 1982 season under manager Whitey Herzog.
The difference is the new jersey is button-down rather than pull-over, and has the “St. Louis” script of Saturday home games, rather than the traditional “Cardinals” script.
The Cardinals will wear the new jersey for Saturday road games.
