What year did they start the baggy pants

Recommended Posts

1990’s according to Wikipedia.  That sounds about right to me.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_uniform

By the 1990s, new styles of close-trimmed pants legs made it possible for players to wear pants that ran clear to the shoetops, in lieu of the traditional knee-breeches style that had prevailed for generations. This led to a violation of the literal concept of a "uniform", in that different players on a given team might wear knee-length and full-length pants on the field at the same time. Players such as Manny Ramirezhave taken this fashion trend to an extreme, wearing loose-fitting pants whose legs nearly lap under the heels of the shoes.

As I recall, I think it was from the book Ball Four, the tailored (more form fitting) uniforms came into the National League first in the early 60's when Mays, Aaron, Robinson (?) started wearing them - they wanted to look good.  Prior to that everyone wore baggy.

Looks ridiculous really. Also miss the skinny stirrups

I don't know but I hate it. Also hate to see men that let their jeans slip below their waist exposing their underweared ass. Seems sloppy is  the in way to dress. I liked the stirrups.

Babe Ruth copied Jackson's swing, and he said that Jackson was the best natural hitter that he ever saw.

    • I want to believe this is true, but I can't get over the fact that Jaime Moyers come along very infrequently, and most often as guys who used to throw harder but have transitioned to pitchability types at the end of their careers. He's not very high on my personal list even though he's clearly an exceptional MiL pitcher. Hopefully I'm wrong.
    • I was worried about the injuries.  Wasn't a risk I was willing to take that high.
    • I was thinking about this the other day. There were quite a few people here that felt like he was the better pick at the time. I really didn't post much then, or now either, but I really liked him as a player.    Bundy was a good selection at the time. He's had a decent career in the grand scheme of things, just not on the level of Rendon.
    • He sounds very much like Ryan Mountcastle, at a high level at least. Profiles as a bat first guy who won't stick at short. With that said, hopefully he doesn't have an obviously deficient arm like Mountcastle. If he turns into a 3B eventually, which is what it sounds like to me, that bat could be a real plus. A ton of development between now and then though. I'd expect them to take it slow with him.
    • Kinga Glyk is the name of the bassist.
    • Am curious your opinion... Mine was generally that hard contact is the hardest skill to teach, and that transferring from contact to power was easier than the opposite. When you have a straight power approach and you're on, it's glorious. However, when you're not in a groove, it gets really ugly. I don't recommend that approach for pretty much anyone. Even supremely talented hitters like Giancarlo Stanton can lose value quickly when they lose the line drive approach to their game. Alternatively, when you're making hard line drive contact regularly, it's easier to let yourself go and crush some balls, IMO. It's when you do too much of that approach that your swing starts to develop real holes. Well, this is all my personal experience, at least.
    • Other teams owners have said that teams aren't moving only to then have the team move. I don't think the Orioles are moving, but like CoC it isn't because of anything John Angelos says.  And that's not a knock on John Angelos.
