It wasn't though. In 1982 twenty three teams wore pullover jerseys and eight teams wore two-tone caps. In 1986 (the last year they wore that uniform) there were still 13 teams wearing pullover jerseys and seven other teams wearing two tone caps. That uniform was pretty much par for the course back then.

Go Sox!!!
