I thought the uniforms were OK (after they removed the numbers from the pants), but I hated the caps. I remember towards the end of that era, the SOX had put together a pretty good team under Torborg and Larry Himes produced some great home-grown talent; McDowell, Ventura and Thomas to name a few. The SOX were still in the West division and although they played well against the A's, Oakland kept winning the division.
