Little leaguers throw back to old era

GRAIN VALLEY, Mo. - Some Grain Valley baseball kids are wearing uniforms this spring that are more like those their ancestors would have worn.

During their game Tuesday night in Lee's Summit, the team wore uniforms that resembled what major league players wore in 1918.

At first, it took some convincing for the kids to suit up.

"At first, some of them were like, ‘I don't want to wear them, they're kinda funny,' and now they're getting into it and are excited about representing baseball," said parent and coach Michael Maynard.

A tailor from Iowa made the custom uniforms.
