Back in 2009, the Chicago White Sox and the Cincinnati Reds locked horns on June 20 for MLB's annual Civil Rights Game, the first year that this game was played in the regular season.
The teams decided to wear the uniforms they wore back in 1964, the year the landmark Civil Rights Act was passed by Congress.
While these uniforms were, by and large, pretty sharp, the Reds' names-below-the-numbers look wasn't a good choice.
This wasn't a good idea back in 1964, so what made it a good idea in 2009? Who knows, but the Reds should have fudged history a bit and swung the name up over the number.....like nearly every other jersey throughout sports history has done.
