Braves jersey

We could get used to this trend around Major League Baseball. Earlier in July it was the Pittsburgh Pirates going with some groovy 1970-era throwbacks.

Saturday against the Philadelphia Phillies will see the Atlanta Braves follow suit. Just check out the totally awesome 1979 throwbacks they are going to be wearing.

That’s so right on, man. One could even say its far out.

Seriously, they are about as clean as all get out. Let’s just hope that the Braves play better in these uniforms than their counterparts from 40 years ago.

That season saw Atlanta post a 66-94 record under Bobby Cox in the first of his two stints as the team’s manager.
