Throwback uniforms are normally a very fitting tribute to a team's history. For some of baseball's younger teams, they don't have a long line of history to recall.
These teams normally wait a while until breaking out throwback uniforms. The Tampa Bay Rays have decided to do something different. They will be wearing throwback jerseys from 1979. This is certainly an intriguing concept, since the Rays would not even come into existence for another 19 years.
Other teams have attempted to wear novelty jerseys and the results were not good. While throwbacks are normally fantastic, there have been a number of duds when teams have tried to do something different with their uniforms.
