Chin-Hui Tsao, Mustard Elephant

Via Diamond Notes comes the whereabouts of former Dodger Chin-Hui Tsao: He's playing for Taiwan's Brother Elephants, a team apparently inspired by/in competition with the 1972 Padres:

Nate Colbert, Padres, circa 1972.

Again, Elephant:

Sheng-Wei Wang, Elephants, 2007.

Padre:

Dave Winfield, Padres, 1970's.

Elephant:

Padre:

And a bonus:

Dad!

70s Pirates too, although they mixed in black shirts and pants.

Best uniforms ever are the KC Royals all powder blues.

The Montreal Expos' Hot-Dog-On-a-Stick uniforms were pretty sweet too.

I was thinking the same thing, Eric.

Agree with you Fred's Brim and Eric and i'd add the Astros with the stars and the stripes.

Why don't they wear the baby blue uniform anymore?

Says here the Royals have a powder blue alternate jersey.

I think it's no coincidence that these uniforms came of age the same time that "free-based" cocaine-use was at a high point.
