Reds: Throwback uniforms
Sunday vs Cardinals
1961 Home - The Reds began the 1961 season mourning the death of longtime owner Powel Crosley, Jr. who passed away shortly before the regular season. To honor Crosley, the club added a black band to the left side of each of its jerseys. The club was sporting a new look in 1961 with a navy blue-infused "C-Reds" mark on the front of the jersey and a blue border around the "C" on the cap. The team's new uniform became the uniform of champions as the "Ragamuffin Reds" shocked the baseball world by winning the pennant. And although the team fell short against the Yankees in the World Series, the 1961 season remains one of the most unexpected and unforgettable championship seasons in Reds history.
Notable Reds who donned this uniform include Leo Cardenas, Gus Bell and Frank Robinson.
