Well, if the reason is the same as the jersey situation for hockey, I know that the teams would wear dark jerseys while they were away because they didn't always have laundry facilities available to them when they were on a road trip. Since dirt shows up less on dark jerseys, a dark jersey would "last" a lot longer than a light one would.
