The Seattle Mariners official twitter account tweeted out a link to a picture of the team's throwback uniforms for a game against the Los Angeles Angels later this month.The M's will wear retro Rainiers uniforms while the Angels will wear their old Pacific Coast League uniforms. Both teams will rock these throwback threads on Turn Back The Clock Night on Saturday, May 26th at Safeco Field.
Coinciding with the theme, the team is also giving out 50's themed posters featuring Jason Vargas, Brendan Ryan, Miguel Olivo and Brandon League to the first 20,000 fans.
See the picture of the retro uniforms after the jump.
Switching up the uniforms is always a successful marketing move, both in terms of getting people to watch the game but also getting people to go to the games. These uniforms are cool only because they are different. In any other situation, these uniforms look old — because they are.
