The Rays to wear 1979 throwback uniforms. Wait, what?

The Tampa Bay Rays began play in 1998. But that’s not stopping them from going with 1979 throwbacks later this season.

According to Sportslogos.net, they will wear “faux-back” uniforms with 1970s-style design elements, including pullover jerseys, thick stripes on the sleeves, a 70s-style script for the team name and a cap with an alternate colored front-panel.  No word on whether they are 1970s-tight, but we can only hope.

There are no pics yet, but I’m sure the look will be good/bad in the way that only 1970s double knits can be.
