The Angels announced on Friday that they’ll feature “Flashback Fridays” as part of their 50th anniversary this season. To kick it off, they’ll wear reproductions of their 1989-92 uniform (with the 50th anniversary patch added) on April 8, April 22 and May 6.
The press release trumpets it as the “late 1980s” design, and while the lettering and cap design remained pretty much the same from 1972-92, the button-down version only came around in ’89, but it’s not a big deal. My first reaction was to wonder why they chose that particular jersey, but after reading through the release, which only mentions those three dates out of 13 Friday home games, it seems that the other 10 games will feature different designs. I don’t know why they didn’t mention that in the initial release, though. I’m also curious as to whether they’ll go in reverse chronological order, or just unveil them randomly.
