They only wore them once in 1976. It was under the Uniforms on this website. Here is the link

Well, let this be a lesson to you for who should be your source of record for such things.

We're too big for our own good.

Of course MLB didn't have it so they're too small for their own good.

If I remember correctly it was the second game of a doubleheader and the biggest complaint from the players was the shorts offered no protection for their legs if they wanted to slide.

It was the first game and I thought I remembered reading at the time that 'sliding pads' were inserted into the socks and shorts to try to give some protection.

I thought they changed out of the shorts before the second game due to George Scott saying they all "looked pretty".
