Why Do Baseball Players Wear White Pants?

I don't understand why the baseball uniform includes white pants.  I'm sure there's a good reason for the "white pants norm", but they still seem pretty stupid to me. 

How much bleach is used every year to keep the white baseball pants looking white?  It's probably enough bleach to fill a small ocean. 

Wouldn't it make more sense for baseball players to wear brown pants?  That way, they could slide in the dirt all day, stains be damned.  And the mothers of Little League players across the world could rejoice and cancel their memberships with the Bleach-of-the-Month Club.
