Online exhibit: Play Ball! TCU Baseball Through the Years


Baseball season is here again, making this the perfect time to highlight some of the photographs of the baseball team in the university archives. Most know about TCU’s success on the diamond, especially last year’s appearance in the College World Series. The photo collection provides an opportunity to track the evolution of the team in a different way, by its uniforms. From wool to double-knit, uniforms have come a long way from the plain styles a hundred years ago to today’s more colorful and varied versions. Sleeveless? Pinstriped? White, gray, purple, black? You never know what you’ll see these days, but here’s a smaple of what people saw back in the day. We hope you enjoy this celebration of TCU baseball’s sartorial splendor.
