Default Sox to wear '83 uniforms on Sundays?

Mark Giangreco on the 10 pm ABC7 News tonight said that the Sox might wear the '83 home uniforms on Sundays next year. I couldn't find that report anywhere else, though...anyone else hear that?

If Mark Giangreco said it about the White Sox, I'm inclined to believe the opposite.

Didn't they just wear those a few years ago for their throwbacks? Maybe it was in 2008 for the 25th anniversary of the 1983 team. However, since 2013 would mark the 30th anniversary, I can see the connection.

Personally, I think JR just likes the uniforms from that era as they represent his first thumbprint on the team.

Sorry, but I love those uniforms. They look creative, unique and something I'm glad is ours.

They are my favorites too if only because there is a photo of me at about a month old wearing that uniform.

SouthsideSox said there might be 1983 Mascot Races, so if that is the case it might lend some more credence to the White Sox wearing the '83 throwbacks.

There was nothing creative or unique about them. The Sox got on the ugly polyester pullover shirt, beltless pants, gaudy uniforms bandwagon just as the trend was beginning to die out. I liked the team, but hated the uniform even then.

I had not heard that but was thinking about this as I recently ordered a 2013 calendar. I have no issue with the 1983 uniforms and if the Sox wearing them on Sundays makes fans happy, then it's all good.

Can you believe it has been 30 years since that "Miracle on 35th" Sox team gave us all those thrills and all that heartache? I remember it like it was yesterday and boy am I feeling old this morning! Where have you gone, Britt Burns?

And now, we look forward to that day when our White Sox will once again be World Series Champions!

They must have changed the cut of those uniforms, because they were awful in 1983 and awesome in 2008, in my opinion.

Just compared the uniforms, one major difference which I think affects the look quite a bit is the originals had a three inch navy blue band in lieu of a belt, while the throwbacks use a belt similar to the modern uniforms. Makes a huge difference, plus the modern material compared to polyester of the original along with the looser style players wear today really improves the look.
