See-Thru Pants

See-Thru Pants


As the Major League Baseball season begins, so has another controversy.

The brew-ha-ha began when Nike, the official uniforn & footwear supplier to the MLB, unveiled a new uniform design.  This new line was performance-based; thinner, lighter-weight, allowing better air circulation.  And the change was much needed as players have been routinely grabbing and adjusting themselves as if wearing tighty-whities full of fire ants.

The new uni’s.


Unfortunately, players disliked the new threads for a variety of reasons, one of which was that the pants were “see-thru.”

Yeah, okay, they are a bit thin.

You can’t see skin but one does notice the jersey tucked into the pants.


But let me assure you, this isn’t the first time “see-thru” pants have been an issue.

Babe Ruth.



Yankee slugger Babe Ruth was the first “ballplayer” to don a pair of see-thru’s.

Yes, with lumber like that Babe hit home runs BOTH on AND off the field!


But not just in baseball.  “See-thru” pants have been around for ages.


Here’s a peek as My Odd Sock presents “See-Thru Pants. The Anthology.”

  1. You so bad……Wasn’t sure if I was going to mention it, but in your Blog Header, should the mystery man be saying, “(Doesn’t know Angi’s List *is* now Angi.)”???
