According to The Philadelphia Inquirer‘s Matt Breen, the Philadelphia Phillies and Oakland A’s will wear throwback jerseys when they face off for a weekend series at Citizens Bank Park on June 12-14:
It’s unclear if the throwback jerseys will be worn for all three games or just one.
What would the jerseys paired with this hat look like? Below, Dressed To The Nines, a Baseball Hall of Fame exhibit dedicated to the history of MLB uniforms, offers a glimpse at the jerseys that the Phillies wore during the 1920 season:
The hat pictured will also serve as a giveaway on June 14 to all men ages 15 and over. If the throwback jerseys are only worn for one game in the series, it would almost certainly be that Sunday afternoon, which is also Chevrolet Father’s Appreciation Day.
The A’s, of course, were a crosstown rival of the Phillies during the first half of the 20th century before moving to Kansas City in 1955, and the uniforms worn by the A’s will be Philadelphia A’s throwbacks. This will be the first time that the Phillies face the A’s in Philadelphia since June of 2011.
While they haven’t won a World Series championship since 1989, the A’s have been quite successful over the past decade, making the playoffs five times since 2012 including Wild Card Game appearances each of the last two seasons.
