The Diamondbacks Will Wear Kansas City Throwback Uniforms

Look at that. That's a damn fine uniform. Unis from a century ago were usually pretty great—white or gray, high socks, uncluttered chest logo, and my favorite, logo-less caps. The Diamondbacks will suit up in these bad boys next Wednesday, and they're going to look great, but it's more than little weird that "throwbacks" … » 4/18/14 1:55pm Friday 1:55pm

Weirdo Rookie Umpire Fills Left Field With His Chewed Gum
