Could the Seattle Mariners be the latest MLB team to go cream?
“Mariners radio voice Rick Rizzs mentioned during Saturday’s game against the Twins, who happened to be wearing their archaic cream garbage uniforms, that the Mariners were considering wearing cream uniforms for Sunday home games.”
Cream is a colour traditionally reserved for teams wearing a vintage, old-school look (and not necessarily one which was originally cream). The Seattle Mariners, founded in 1977 during the height of the pull-over and powder blue era certainly do not fit the mold of a cream-wearin’ team, but neither did the expansion Arizona Diamondbacks, who gave birth to the fad back in 1998.
This being the second straight season we’ve heard about it we’re thinking it’s inevitable, the Mariners will eventually go cream, even if it is just for Sunday home games.
