Will this Astros approve the original Colt .45 logo...?

... or this alternative on Friday?

Let’s all agree to something before we get started: guns in the hands of the wrong people are a bad thing. Let’s also agree that (within reason) highlighting traditionally historical themes within the sports framework is good. Going back to the deadball is bad. We can certainly debate whether the Cleveland Indians “Wahoo” characterture is offensively racist. And, we can debate whether the Astros should be allowed to wear the original Colt .45 uniforms that have a gun on them as part of the Astros’ 50th anniversary celebration this year.

To the credit of the Astros, that’s exactly what they’ve been engaged in for several months with MLB, and this past week with fans.

According to a release by the club, when they approached MLB about whether they should or should not use the original uniform design with the Colt pistol on it, the league is deferring to the Astros to make the decision. The uniforms will be worn as part of their “Flashback Fridays” promotion that will highlight a different uniform each month with the team wearing that jersey for each Friday night game. Part of the program includes the iconic Colt .45s jersey that the team will wear on Tuesday, April 10 vs. the Atlanta Braves (commemorating the first game in franchise history) and on Friday, April 20 vs. the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The Astros plan to announce tomorrow (Friday) whether the “pistol” design or the alternative jersey that would only have the Colts name on the front of the jersey will be used.

As we said upfront, guns in the wrong hands are bad. As this is really about wearing the historic uniforms for two games, and the fact that the Astros are moving to the American League next season, it would be a nice tip of the hat to history if the original design with the pistol was approved.
