As I marched towards remembering the 1980s and at the same time promoting my contest, today I will be looking at some of the uniforms and players from the 1980s.
I will specifically look at the four teams that Andrew has played on and talk about the uniforms they wore in the 1980s along with my favorite from each team during the 80s.
Let's start with the team that Cutch played the fewest amount of games with, the New York Yankees. Rich in tradition, the Yankees uniform remains unchanged for nearly a century. The pinstripes are world famous, there are no names on the back, and the NY has largely remained the same on the front since the days of Babe Ruth.
Choosing my favorite Yankee of the 80s is a no brainer. It has to be Donnie Baseball.
The Giants had a white home jersey with big bubbly letters for the G and S, but those uniforms haven't been worn by the team in a long time. During Cutch's tenor with the team they used a road grey jersey worn in the 80s. It included a SF over the left breast plate of the player.
The Pittsburgh Pirates will likely always be the team that Andrew is associated with and he helped bring a winning tradition back to the Steel City for a brief time from 2013 to 2015. This three year stretch was only the second time since the 1979 World Series Champions made the playoffs. The uniforms made famous by the 1979 "We are Family" Pirates were worn into the 80s by the Battlin' Bucs.
His current uniform of the Phillies has a throwback variant and has already started showing up on cardboard.
It's this guy again!
