With only a few games left in the regular season all eyes are on the Yankees lately. Even if you’re not a Yankees fan you still are following along to see if Aaron Judge can hit that 62nd home run and break the record. Will he do it?! Who knows.
As I was watching over the weekend I wondered why the Yankees started wearing those now iconic pinstripes on their uniforms? One big rumor is that Babe Ruth requested the look to make him look slimmer on the field and in photos. It doesn’t seem to be the most accurate explanation since as most people point out the team was wearing them since about 1912 well before Ruth played for them. It’s more an element of the style back then in the early 1900s. The Yankees were clearly version fashion forward.
