New Red Sox uniforms

Looks like the Red Sox will have new uniforms for the 2009 season. You can see pictures of them on the very coincidentally linked online store. The traditional B hat will still be the primary hat, but there will also be a “hanging sox” alternate hat along with alternate home/away jerseys (all red or all blue).

What I really like is the new primary away uniforms, that are definitely retro looking straight from the 1980s. In an era where teams seem to go way overboard with flashy fonts, multiple colors, and unneeded fluff, the Red Sox seem to be going with the K.I.S.S. principle. I love it.

With an ice storm in process tonight and into tomorrow morning, the following Roger Hornsby quote (my favorite baseball quote of all time) says what I am thinking right now:

“People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.” – Roger Hornsby.
