View from inside the clubhouse: Check out these throwback uniforms!

Some may argue that the 1970s were wonderfully tacky, with leisure suits, bell bottoms and disco ruling the roost.

While perhaps they’re not as classically pleasing to the eye as, say, the shooting star jerseys, these uniforms will live on in the hearts of minds of Astros fans who remember a time when the rainbow design was uniquely Houston, and all the rage.

The Astros will wear the 1970s version of the rainbow unis tonight. Here’s a sneak peek from inside the clubhouse, via catcher Jason Castro:
