Brown: Four baseball uniform innovations from 1894

From SABR member Craig Brown at Threads of our Game on September 20, 2018:

The Threads Of Our Game website is highlighting four innovative baseball uniforms from 1894: Baltimore, Boston, Milwaukee and Washington. Each outfit broke new ground in baseball fashion.

1894 was a good baseball year. The NL was back on its feet after enduring the Players’ League, split seasons and the moving of the mound. Three teams in 1894 each drew 300,000 fans (a big number back then). And, Baltimore emerged as the gritty, hard-nosed team that would define the decade.

It was a good year for baseball fashion, too.
