Pittsburgh Pirates Will Rock 1979 Throwback Unis For All Sunday Games (Pic)


The Pirates have unveiled their alternate uniforms for the 2016 season, and they’re essentially going to be wearing their divisive 1979 uniforms as alternates for all Sunday games this year. The uniforms are among the most iconic from the color-soaked late 70s era. Once again, they’ll be getting the pillbox hat, the gold-yellow jersey, and pretty much black everywhere else.

Here’s a full image, and the announcement:

Note the “beltless pants.” I don’t know why you’d break from tradition on the issue of belts, but I’ll just assume the person who decided to use these uniforms knows what he’s doing.
