Red Sox Wear 1975 Throwback Uniforms As Rays Rock ‘Fauxbacks’ (Photos)

by


The Boston Red Sox and Tampa Bay Rays turned back the clock Saturday. Kind of.

The Red Sox broke out their 1975 road uniforms for the middle game of the teams’ three-game series at Tropicana Field. The Rays, meanwhile, opted for their “fauxback” jerseys, which have a retro feel yet never actually were worn regularly because, well, Tampa Bay wasn’t a franchise back then.

This isn’t the first time this season the Red Sox have gone old school. They wore 1975 home uniforms following a 40th anniversary celebration of Boston’s 1975 American League championship team. And they also sported Negro League jerseys during a game against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field.
