Earlier this month, a number of sources noted that an image on the Houston Astros' official website could be adjusted to reveal a (somewhat blurry) clue as to what the team's new logo and uniforms would look like. The team had already announced the new look -- in conjunction with the team moving to the American League -- would harken back to the 1960s. Retro is all the rage nowadays. The Astros are planning to formally release the logo and uniforms on Friday, but over the weekend a double-edged leak occurred, and the secret is out. Both a local Houston sporting goods store (in brick and mortor) and Major League Baseball (online) accidentally unveiled the new duds. In fact, Major League Baseball has already issued a formal apology to the Astros, while Academy sporting goods has long since removed items bearing the new logo from its storefront -- the store's mistake was initially noticed by a Twitter user named Ernest Moreno. But, since the images are already splashed across the internet, check out the Astros' new (old) look in the image below. So the pic I took of the Astros shirt at Academy is popular. I'm gonna go get it today, even if it is a medium. #astros twitter.com/astromo1977/st… — Ernest Moreno (@astromo1977) October 26, 2012
