10 Worst Uniform Color Combos in Baseball History
Throughout the history of baseball, there have been some very nice, clean uniforms. However, there have also been some really, really bad ones.
From yellow and green to brown and red, some of the baseball uniforms in this list will make you wonder whose idea it was to don such horrid jerseys.
Let's take a look through the 10 worst uniform color combinations in baseball history.
10. Albuquerque Dukes (Now Defunct)
That much yellow doesn't belong on a baseball uniform.
The Dukes were an affiliate for a slew of teams, including the Dodgers from 1972-2000.
I'm just glad they put us out of our misery. That color is hard to look at for nine innings.
(And yes, that is a Tommy Lasorda bobblehead.)
9. San Diego Padres, Camouflage?
Camo has no place on a baseball diamond.
Regardless of the intent behind the unis, having not one, but two different styles of camouflage is a cardinal sin.
Can opposing teams even see these uniforms?
8. Green Sox
The Green Sox?
I get the homage to St. Patrick's Day, but this is ridiculous.
The Red Sox uniforms are classic, but adding in green and red does not work—unless there are also Santa hats present.
7. San Diego Padres, 1969-1990
Brown and yellow.
No one has ever accused these two colors of being friends.
The Padres had these uniforms (or at least some variation of them) from their inception until 1990, and that's when they finally updated their look.
Even Tony Gwynn couldn't hit well enough to make these unis passable.
6. Pittsburgh Pirates, 1999
Traditional Pittsburgh black and yellow—and red?
Although it was for just one night, the Pittsburgh Pirates mixed colors that they had no business putting on the same jersey.
The Pirates are black and yellow. That is all, Pittsburgh!
What a shame. Those unis were bad.
5. Cuba, World Baseball Classic
Red, white and blue usually is a safe combination to go with.
However, not when there's that much red.
Red jerseys, red hats and the ultimate "don't" with regard to baseball fashion: red pants.
4. Kansas City Athletics, 1955-1967
Green and yellow.
The Leprechauns of the Midwest, this franchise had virtually no success in KC.
Thankfully for baseball fans around the world, they fled to the West Coast and changed their uniforms to a much more traditional and less horrific color scheme.
3. Fresno Grizzlies (San Francisco Giants' AAA Affiliate)
"Come on down" to one of the most terrible uniform color combinations in history!
I have to hand it to the Grizzlies: Their creativity is commendable, and I'm sure there was some sort of promotional giveaway for the fans.
However, when it comes to colors, this is bad.
Drew Carey instead of Bob Barker, bad.
2. Houston Astros, 1975-1993
White, blue, yellow, red, orange.
A cornucopia of ugliness. A barrage of distracting hues that, for nearly 20 years, plagued National League stadiums.
Houston, you had a problem.
1. Tucson Toros
Orange, red, yellow and a hint of green.
This takes what the Houston Astros had with their horrific uniforms and taken it to the next level.
Having that much orange on anything (sorry, Vol fans) is a bad idea.
Congratulations, the currently defunct Tucson Toros, you take the cake as having the worst uniform colors in history.
