There was not a lot to like about the Phillies’ 10-5 loss to the Expos on May 19, 1979. Including the uniforms.

Larry Christenson, dressed to unimpress.

On May 19. 1979, the Phillies lost a 10-5 game to the Expos. Andre Dawson hit a bomb for Montreal, Mike Schmidt went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts for the Phillies, but nobody was looking at the baseball.

They were looking at the all-burgundy, one-night-only Saturday Night Special uniforms the Phillies donned for this particular loss.

That’s right, folks. On this episode of The Dirty Inning, Justin and Trevor narrate for you the worst-dressed loss in Phillies history.
