The best part of Reds Baseball this year: The Sleeveless Jerseys.

The sleeveless jerseys are an homage to the kind of uniforms the Reds used to wear back in the 1950s through the ‘60s before the Big Red Machine era was ushered in that brought back those repressive muscle-hiding sleeves. They made a brief comeback in the ‘90s before going away and returning for special retro days like this one.

These are cool as a weekend jersey gimmick, but it’d even better to see these beefy lads rock the sleeveless look on a chilly October evening as a power move against whoever their opponents are. Luckily for them, they’re only 4.5 games out of both a Wild Card spot and the lead of their division, meaning there’s plenty of time for that to become a reality.
The Reds wore sleeveless throwbacks on Sunday.
