The Barons will don the uniforms worn by the 1967 Birmingham A's featuring the iconic A's script on the left side of the jersey which will be white with green sleeves and green numbers on the front right and back of the uniform. The team will also wear special green caps with the white old English "B" on it.
Former MLB All-Star, Cy Young Award winner, Baseball Hall of Famer and former Birmingham A's pitcher Rollie Fingers will be the special guest of honor.
The 2016 classic will celebrate Baseball Hall of Famers, especially those that have donned the Birmingham Barons, Black Barons or A's uniform. Harold "Pie" Traynor (1948), Burleigh Grimes (1964), Rube Marquard (1971) and Frank Thomas (2013) are Baseball Hall of Famers who wore the Barons uniform. The legendary Rollie Fingers (1992) and "Mr. October" Reggie Jackson (1993) were both members of the Birmingham A's before embarking on their Hall of Fame careers. Leroy "Satchel" Paige (1971), Willie Mays (1979), George "Mule" Shuttles (1996), Bill Foster (1996) and Willie Wells (1997) are former Black Barons that are enshrined in Cooperstown.
