Photos 7/17/11: A's/Angels 80s Throwbacks

Complete set here

Yesterday's game was pretty awesome, not just on the scoreboard (9-1!), but aesthetically. As part of 80s weekend, the A's and Angels went with 1980s throwback uniforms that looked pretty sharp. Plus, all the players went high-socked, with Coco Crisp even going with the stirrups.

Some highlights:
