Twins will sometimes wear baby blue uniforms in 2020

The Twins will wear a baby blue alternate uniform for 2020, replicating the team’s road uniform worn from 1973-86.

The team will also wear a special logo commemorating their 60th season in Minnesota.

The alternate uniforms can be worn in home and road games and will paired with the team’s navy blue cap.

“No uniform in the history of Minnesota Twins baseball drives more fan engagement than the old-school baby blues,” Twins President and CEO Dave St. Peter said in a release.

And the return of retro elements to contemporary uniforms continues.

In public?

Things aren't the same anymore
Some nights, they get so bad
I almost pick up the bullpen phone

Trade baby blues for wide-eyed browns...

Mwah! Big chef's kisses. These are beautiful. Reminds me of Kirby Puckett rookie cards.

Fan engagement successfully ‘driven.’

You say that like it's a bad thing! But yes, it's true, I enjoy baseball slightly more today that I would have otherwise.

Some retro is good.

Some, like this, are less so.

What about baby pinks?

Baby blue is my favorite color and it looks brilliant in sports uniforms. The Royals look good every day. I never understand why teams that look so fine, like the Chargers and Nuggets, almost invariably swap back to some nondescript navy. Lots of baseball teams have flirted with it - the Phillies, the Braves, the Brewers, the Cardinals. Glad to see the Twins bring it back.

I grew up in the 1970s-1980s, when baby blue road unis were everywhere. And supposedly everything about baseball was better when you were 10.

Baby blue uniforms should be a violation of the Geneva Convention.

No, only for cookies and nap time.

No, just rolling my eyes at the use of the stupid buzzword "driven," which is everywhere these days. I'm going to form a company with nothing more than the slogan "Driving disruptive solutions," and watch the VC funding come pouring in.

Where do I send the check? I'd like to invest my 401-k

Leave your stepping stones behind there, something calls for you
Forget the dead you've left, they will not follow you
The vagabond who's rapping at your door
Is standing in the clothes that you once wore
Strike another match, go start anew
And it's all over now, Baby Blue

Bring back the baby blue police cars!

Bring back Barry White!

Certain things turn me on
Like the way you might say a word or
The way you wear your hair
You have a certain smile on your face

By just the way you're standing there right now
Now you really, really, really, look good to me, baby
In your baby blue panties, yes love, you look good to me right now
In your baby blues, them baby blues and you

Geez, and after the Twins so carefully curated the 2020 uniform selections for you.
