The trip to Baltimore and Detroit will see the White Sox dressing in ``far out'' 1970s attire for the trip, their first ``funny attire'' episode that most teams have during a season.
``It was hatched a while ago,'' manager Robin Ventura said. ``They're in need of some loosening of the restraints right now. So they're dressing in some loud-mouth clothing.
``I haven't worn any of that--but I'm wearing it today,'' he said. ``They made sure I wasn't missing out. Nobody is missing out.''
Ventura said the antics are part of baseball tradition.
``Even [when I played] we did stuff like this, whether it's rookie stuff or guys doing stuff. We always [did.] It's fun to just be able to do it and loosen them up and let them have a little fun.''
Outlandish pants seemed to be the prevailing attire.
``You know we're all fans because anytime you get out of wearing a suit, we're up for it,'' Paul Konerko said. ``It's pretty light and everybody's having a good time with it. I just went with the opposite of what I would normally do,'' he said of his black checkered pants. ``If we had more time to really accessorize and get into it, I might have come up with something better. I think everybody was on short notice so we did the best we could. The pants themselves are pretty loud. It's all in good fun.''
