The Astros are wearing throwback uniforms for every Friday home game this year to celebrate their 50th anniversary.

Interesting thing is that according to this MLBlog post, the Colt 45's throwbacks will not have the pistol on the jersey because it was "deemed inappropriate to include on a uniform".

Then why bother wearing it?

Completely agree. Why bother wearing it? They should just use the first Astros uniform instead.

Paul Lukas (Uni Watch) has summarized uniform changes/throwback plans for all clubs here.
