The old school unis tonight were so nice looking. I was really digging them.

Am I in the minority when I say I like names on the backs of the uniform?

I like them for the road team if I'm at the game, but I loved those they wore tonight. Don't know how they looked on TV, but they are sweet in person.

Looked good to me. I just wish players would wear the uniforms so that they actually fit.

I agree, and that is how the Red Sox do it. Names on the back of their road uniforms, but no names at home.

These uniforms were beautiful. Absolutely the best looking setup I've evern seen the team wear. Someone really needs to get word to the Castellini's that the fanbase likes these.

Agree on the uniform.

Those navy blue caps with the red "C" were great, too.

Whatever you wear looks good when you're in First Place.

You are dead on with that one. I do love the old school unis though.

I hope 20 years from now we have an old timers uniform game where the reds wear the Jersey's of the mid 90's snow cone hats. Now that would be funny

Actually when reds got new uniforms a couple of years ago there was a rumor that they were going to wear Navy Blue again. But they Nixed that idea. The color combination of that would be too close to the Cardinals I think.

I remember that! I think they actually came out and announced that they would have blue in them, and then by the time we got the new uniforms, I had forgotten all about it!

I didn't like the hats. Look at them, and they're almost an exact replica of the Twins hat. We are the Cincinnati Reds, not the Cincinnati Navy Blue & Reds...

Great, something we can agree on. I loved those uniforms, I wish they would wear them more often.

No...you are part of the silent majority. That's why most teams have their names on the uniforms.

Obviously the demographic of people who here is going to be skewed, generally in the direction of "I hate everything new."

Couldnt be farther from the truth.

I dunno. I remember some A's uniforms that would be an abomination with a 162-0 record.

1990 Reds. Great team. Silly unis. Would have actually been 100% better is they could just scale the font down for the last names. Worked fine for Sabo and Reed, not so much for Winningham and Benzinger.

I liked them a lot, usually liek the retro/throwbacks, as long as they dont try to combine the old school look with new school style, that can just get out of hand. These worked well together this weekend....

I grew up with the Reds of Pinson and Robinson. And ice-cream man caps and helmets, which I'll always have a soft spot for.

So it's nice to see those 1947 navy caps. They're older-school than me.

Also, if I gotta choose a secondary color, I'd go with the navy blue over the current black.

I dont like the names on the unis. dont think its needed. I like them in football cause with the helmets sometimes its hard to tell them apart, but you can see who everyone is in baseball.
