Paul here. Did you know Toronto once had a minor league baseball team called the Maple Leafs (in addition to the NHL team of the same name, obviously)? I didn’t, until I started working on this week’s Bulletin article about the best “Field of Dreams” throwback uniform for each American League team. The Leafs uni shown above would be a perfect choice for the Blue Jays, no? And I’ve come up with similarly fun and interesting choices for the remaining American League teams. (As you may recall, I did the National League last week.)
My Premium Subscribers can access the article here. If you haven’t yet subscribed, you can do that here (you’ll need a Facebook account in order to pay). Don’t have or want a Facebook account? Email me for workaround info. Thanks! (If you sign up for the workaround this week, I’ll send you last week’s NL article in addition to this week’s AL piece.)
Speaking of Bulletin: My annual Uni Watch NFL Season Preview will be published there exactly two weeks from today, Sept. 6, and I don’t mind saying it’s shaping up as a doozy — nearly 6,000 words and counting! The NHL and NBA Season Previews will follow in October, so there’s lots of good stuff in the Bulletin hopper.
