    Watched them play over the weekend. I actually like the new hat logo and the look of the uniform. But I've always been a fan of the old school sports simplicity looks.

    (man... the MLB Network channel is great!)

    Indians have a good manager. And I like the old-style look too. Even the Yankees........LOL

    LOL. Wish I could hate the Yankees but I always root for any team that my uncle played for. And unfortunately he was on the Yankees for part of the 1960 season after his stint at Cleveland. At least I can still hate Boston, as Ted Williams was my uncle's arch nemesis during his career. I remember a story he told me about one particular game between the Athletics and the Red Sox. In the first two at bats Williams hit grounders to my uncle in right field. He said Williams hitting style made fielding his grounders a problem because you never knew which way the ball would go, and both got by him. When Williams came to the plate for his third at bat, he pointed and smiled at my uncle. He said he knew the ball was coming his way, and it did. He said he didn’t even try fielding it, and instead just threw his body into the ball just to stop it. It wasn’t pretty but at least he held him to only a single.

    I'm sure Teddy Ballgame did that to a lot of players. LOL

    Great story, by the way.

    My only Ted Williams direct memorabilia is a rather odd one... a Sears Ted Williams 16 gauge bolt action shotgun. Williams and my uncle were friends off the field. He gave a new one from his line to my uncle as a gift. My uncle had no use for guns and gave it to my dad, which then came to me. Unfortunately Williams didn’t sign it, so there’s really no value to it other then sentimental.

    They're going for the classic look that a lot of other teams like the Dodgers, Yankees and Angels use.

    I love the story in Jim Bouton's Ball Four,about Williams taking batting practice and talking to himself as he got ready.."I'm Ted fu#$ing Williams!" Crack! "Here comes Jim Bunning,with that sh*t slider of his.." Crack! "I'm Ted fu$%ing Williams!" Crack..
