Turn Ahead the Clock Uniforms, MLB’s failed idea of the ’90s

Written By:  •  Wednesday, June 20, 2012

In 1998 the Seattle Mariners, tired of the Turn Back the Clock promotions of the past decade wanted something new, something fresh… they decided to Turn Ahead the Clock to their 50th anniversary season in 2027.

Major League Baseball loved the idea, tied a sponsor to it, and destroyed the concept for the 1999 season… I take a look at why it failed, how this idea could work again, and of course I throw in a bunch of pictures of those whacky futuristic uniforms in my latest article for theScore.com

    Nice idea. Bring it back retro science fiction style, with uniforms a la Flash Gordon, The Jetsons or The Thunderbirds. And, in the vein of the Mercury Mets, the Saturn Mariners, Pluto Pirates, Sun Diego Padres. NASA Astros! Mars Reds! Black Hole Yankees!

    I’m all for a bit of modernization but still side with the purist in me. Despite that, I find those abominations to be…..well, abominable. Can you see the likes of Cobb, Gehrig, Musial, Mantle and Rose cheerfully donning such togs back in their day? Although the uniform corniness began in the 60′s, MLB has become somewhat of a disgrace since Selig took over. Shame on him.

    I like the twins jerseys and grey billed cap and how they had chewy in the dugout and the mercury mets were really cool and the athletics robot elephant logo is really cool so maybe those teams should bring back the promotion.
