Brewers & Twins Turn Back the Clock to 1948

Tonight, the Twins and the Brewers are turning back the clocks at Target Field—all the way back to 1948.

That year, Harry Truman was President, Scrabble was invented,  gas was $.26/gallon and the Brewers wore these uniforms:

Tonight, both teams are paying tribute to the American Association teams that called their areas  home 65 years ago.

The Twins will celebrate Minnesota baseball history by wearing throwback uniforms of the 1948 St. Paul Saints. That year, the Saints finished 86-68 and were the Triple-A affiliate of the Brooklyn Dodgers.  The Brewers will play as the 1948 Milwaukee Brewers. That year, the Brewers finished 89-65 and were the Triple-A affiliate of the Boston Braves.

How can I purchase a throwback jersey? I want one with my favorite player of that era, Andy Pfako.

Andy PAFKO (not Pfako) never played for those Milwaukee Brewers. Pafko was in the majors with the Cubs in 1943.
