Hey Dan--it's been a long time.
I saw one of those games--but they were wearing the longer shorts and playing the Yankees. My recollection may be foggy but I believe the game was at Shea Stadium (Yankee Stadium was begin renovated) and it was my first time seeing the Yankees (I was a die hard met fan). Those uniforms were ridiculous. If I recall correctly the game I saw was in June.

Hey, Michael! Lovely to hear from ya. I think your memory may be combining a couple of different games - the Sox didn't bust out the shorts until '76, by which time the Yankees were already back in the Bronx. (Their Shea exile took place in '74 and '75.) Very cool that you got to see the shorts in action, though; hope you weren't too traumatized!
