Ozzie was wearing the old school white and blue hat during his interview on CSN. Also, while talking to Bill Melton on the field right now (12:11), I saw the team logos on the big screen in the background. The Cubs normal symbol, and the old school "C" for the SOX logo. That'd be nice to bring the uniforms for today's game.

Ok, well, I guess I was right. Incase anyone was wondering...

"We closed our clubhouse after batting practice today to make arrangements for a special promotion. You didn't read it here, but our team is going to wear replica uniforms from the 1906 World Series for today's game. Let's just hope these have hits in them."

Interesting...

I think each team should wear the uniforms they wore the last time they won the World Series. :cool::D:

Have they worn the 1906 uniforms before? I don't recall.

I completely agree. LOL! Ozzie should have made a last-second change just to cross up the Lovable Losers.

Today's uniforms sucked.

1. The hats (white) don't match the jerseys and pants (off-white), and it looks cheap.

2. These aren't even proper throwbacks. They basically took modern-day uniform material and stuck the 1906 logo on the chest. Why didn't they go all-out like they did for the quality 1959 uniforms that were worn last year, complete with proper stirrups?

3. The players obviously didn't buy into the concept. Why the **** were the players wearing BLACK HOSIERY? It looked ridiculous.

THESE THROWBACKS SUCK.

Here is what the uniform is supposed to look like:

I agree...they did the four button down look correctly, which was cool, but obviously they didn't replicate the collars from the originals. Why do something like this half ass?

I liked the look but they should modify it slightly and make the "C" a black. Blue is never good.

These '06 throwbacks should never see the light of day again. Ever.

They never should have been worn to begin with. Now that they've been worn once, the Sox should auction them off for charity and end this experiment.

Not the World Series, but in 1901 they did finsish in 1st place, but this was prior to having the World Series.

Just because they suck and the results of today's farce they should burn those uniforms and never use them again.

I hate throw back uniforms about as much as I hate the green ones for "Half Way to St. Pat's Day". Every time they wear uniforms like this they lose. They should just stick with their regular season uniforms.

I LOVED the 1959 throwbacks the Sox wore last year, but didn't like the unis yesterday.

Hell, I loved the retro 1950s unis I was looking to buy a jersey.

The Sox barely won that game last year too. Granted they made and amazing comeback in the 9th which is probably one of the most memorable but it was ugly getting there.

Retro uniforms equal losses.

Yea I know. I was just saying I liked the way they looked last year. I like the Present Sox uniforms A LOT...by far my favorite we've ever had, but those 1950s unis were quite spiffy.

The ones yesterday ... i wasn't excited about them. I love rolling out the retros though...its why baseball is so good in that it never forgets its past.

Am I the only person who liked yesterday's unis? I thought they looked sharp. The font they used for the players' numbers was beautiful.

I didn't notice that the unis weren't 100% accurate. That's a shame. Still, I liked the unis and hope they wear them again despite their inauspicious debut.

I thought they were ok, and don't really care if they aren't perfect.

Plus, its still fun to remind Cubs fans we beat them in the world series back in 1906, even if it was 100 years ago.

I liked the jerseys and caps a lot. I didn't like the loss. And it's a shame they couldn't make an 'accurate' replica.
