Baseball Stirrup Socks
Baseball stirrup socks are as much a part of the game as the glove, ball or bat. When people see a group headed towards any open space wearing these stirrups, they tend to know exactly what is about to happen. While the prominence of the display of baseball stirrup socks has grown and waned and then grown again over the years, it’s interesting to note how this look came about.
Of course, as is the case with a lot of things that are part of America’s Pastime, this look can be seen as “old school baseball stirrup socks” given that the origins of this piece of the uniform date back over a century.
According to baseball lore, the first player to wear stirrup socks was Nap Lajoie of the Cleveland Naps in 1905. He had been spiked in a previous game and it was believed at the time that he had suffered blood poisoning from the dye used in baseball socks at the time. In order to get back on the field, Lajoie placed a white “sanitary” sock under his colored sock and cut the colored sock out around the ankle so he could fit into his cleats. A trend was born, and stirrup socks have been part of the game since.
