Is it impossible to critically watch the game in its entirety and also notice that the uniforms have changed? Wow, I didn't know those were mutually exclusive concepts.

Hell, I don't know, maybe they got a discount on some leftover pants, but I am amazed at the things fans notice, much less get concerned about. The stripe on the side of the pants. Damn.

They've been wearing the same pants for 22+ years. Accounting for the time lost at the end of '94 and beginning of '95 for the strike, along with the Boston series at the end of '90, they've played around 1700 games in those.

I mean, perhaps you are "amazed" that someone noticed, but I don't think we're talking about some supernatural abilities here like counting the number of hairs sticking out of Hawk's beak.

Okay, but if you had asked me before this thread to describe the stripe on the legs of the road uniform pants, chances are pretty good I wouldn't have been able to. Generally describe the road uniform? Sure. But that level of detail? Probably not.

Well, believe it. I can watch a game without paying attention to every little detail of the uniform. It is possible.

I'm in this boat as well.

If the Sox took the field wearing another team's uniforms, I might notice that, however, I usually don't pay attention to the uni as much as the action on the field.

There's saying "Wow. Look. The Sox have new pants."

And then there's saying "I always hate it when teams switch the uniform they won the World Series in. They should be mandated to keep that uniform forever." and making 5 of the first 10 posts in a thread about it.

If history repeats itself, the SOX will probably wear the gray road jerseys after losing last night in the black alternates.

As posted earlier, perhaps the gray pants with the single black piping will be used only with the black alternate jersey and that the road grays haven't changed.

I remember when the SOX had the home vest alternates. They did not wear them as much as the regular jerseys, but the home pinstripe pants were worn with all three home jerseys. By August and September, you could see a pretty drastic color brightness difference between the pants and the vest jerseys where the vests looked a lot whiter/cleaner. I remember Hawk and DJ talking about it during one of the games.

I am really lost on this. You are honestly telling me that for 22 years the Sox have worn a pair of grey pants with a black and white stripe down the side, and you have never noticed that, recognized that and would not have been able to recollect that at all? Seriously? You attribute the term "level of detail" to something like that? Ok. I guess my brain works in a different way than yours. Huh.

Red, you are talking to the wrong crowd on this subject. We got guys here that havent noticed the grey pants have had a tuxedo stripe down the side for the last 22 years. You're insane to noticed that level of detail. Watch the damn action on the field.

He said before this thread he couldn't describe the stripe, not that he didn't notice it. reading comprehension...you said something about that earlier, right? And you seem to be taking this quite personally. Some of us don't notice subtle changes like that...and it is a subtle change, no matter what you might think. It's not like they went from black to gray pants. For Christ sakes, it's a stripe on pants. We didn't notice the change. Big deal. Geez...

I went to Dressed to the Nines (the Baseball HOF online database and exhibit on MLB uniforms) to compare, but unfortunately their database is rather incomplete.

Brian, I'm with you on this. I can watch a game and pick up changes on uniforms, stadiums, signs and whatever else from year to year.

That's great. You can spot those changes. Some of us don't pay that much attention. If they weren't wearing pants...that might get my attention.
