The Boston Red Sox are one of the most storied franchises in Major League Baseball, but their uniforms the past few  years? They just weren’t cutting it.

Thankfully, that experiment has come to an end as the Red Sox will revert back to their uniforms which they wore from 1990 to 2009 – this according to Paul Lukas of ESPN’s Uni Watch.

During the past few seasons, the Red Sox wore their gray road jersey which featured navy colored text and numbers. There was no outline on anything giving the uniform a pretty drab look.

But with another World Championship under their belt, the Red Sox felt it was a good time to change back to their more familiar road threads which feature a red text/red number with a navy blue outline.

If you look closely, the Red Sox did change the font a little – so little it’s difficult to tell but Chris Creamer points out the subtle differences.

It is not known if the Red Sox will wear a World Series Champion patch like many teams in recent years have done.
