On the field, both teams donned Negro Leagues uniforms. The Royals wore Kansas City Monarchs jerseys and the Baltimore Orioles sported those of the Baltimore Black Sox.
The Kansas City Royals wore Monarchs jerseys from the mid-1920s that feature a cream jersey, pants with dark blue pinstripes, and a dark blue "KC" logo on the sleeve. They also wore a cream colored cap with a dark blue bill and a dark blue "M" on the front.
The Baltimore Orioles wore road gray Black Sox jerseys from the late-1920s with the Black Sox logo across the chest. They also wore a black cap with an orange bill and the "circled B" logo on the front.
