    Conrad is an insider and gets a lot of the first looks on these things. He has a long history of accuracy. His concepts are probably as close as you will get to seeing the real thing before release.

    They actually did show off a mono gray look - along with mono black, black/red, and every other combo you can think of. Temple is a great example of why teams only need one helmet. Their combos would all look great if they were limited to just the cherry helmet rather than three different ones, because (at least in theory) it would force them into tasteful combinations.

    It's not immature to enjoy (or not) sports in whatever way works for you. If you want to suffer and wear it as a badge-of-honor? Cool. As soon as you start criticizing "fans" [sic] and claim superiority because you have more knowledge and can name the uniform numbers of every schmuck that signed a 10-day contract as far back as 1992, and claim that the way other people enjoy sports "bothers" you, that's immature. People have different priorities in life. When I was younger and had fewer responsibilities, SPORTS!!! were high on the list. Now, I ain't got time to invest in anything that is 1) inconsequential, 2) ultimately lines the pockets of low-lifes with more money than actual contributors to society will ever see, and 3) has a great likelihood of causing disappointment. For me, it's about the social experience, and that's always better when a team is winning and people are celebrating, climbing poles, punching horses, and eating their poop. Especially if that team happens to win the Super Bowl, like the Super Bowl Champion Philadelphia Eagles did in this year's Super Bowl.

    The grey and cherry uniform combination is an excellent look. I’m glad temple didn’t try to go mono grey with that look. They should just make that grey and cherry there normal alternate uniform. The set as a whole is awesome to me. It’s up there with Virginia for the best new uniform set. It’s unique, modern, and clean plus the alternate is not just a cookie cutter “blackout” one. Correction: they did show off a mono grey look, I just didn’t look at enough images.

    The City of Atlanta's primary Negro League team was the Atlanta Black Crackers. Like many Negro league teams, when they formed they had taken the nickname of the local white team (the Atlanta Crackers) and added to "Black" to the front of it. Today, Cracker is a negative racial epithet for white people implying ignorance, though in the early 20th Century the definition was more akin to a country bumpkin. This created something of an oxymoron with a team being called effectively the Black White People. (Off topic, there's interesting history around this juxtaposition ranging from 18th century St. Dominque to Irish immigration to the present day) The Atlanta Black Crackers made great use of the name by creating uniforms with bold "ABC" jersey designs. With that in mind, I imagined the ABC's wanting to change their name while retaining the bold ABC design palate. One way is go in the Football direction and name the team: the ATLANTA BASEBALL CLUB. I've added the idea of the ABC moving in a similar direction to the Braves in the 70's with royal blue and red.

    The Illinois bill died. Arguments were a combination of "the important character values of playing football, concern trolling over not knowing how to tackle in high school (and increasing the risk to life and limb), and a lack of realization that your average JFL coach probably has more in common with John McGuirk from the Home Movies cartoon than say Vince Lombardi."

    Oof... I like the Maryland flag, but that's not a great way of incorporating it.

    Honestly, I prefer the original.. I think the additional design elements are a bit too much.. I think the regular fur color stitching, but changing directions, would accomplish the goal without adding too much.. I actually prefer the original head shape as well.. I think it lends itself to the old timey feel

    In light of @SFGiants58's discussion in his Defunct Series of how horrible the owners of the Washington Senators were on racial matter, I've added a specific narrative to the alternate history of this series. In our reality in 1942, the Homestead Grays of Pittsburgh, arguably the New York Yankees of the Negro Leagues, began playing a large chunk of their home games in Washington DC. In later years, they played more that 2/3 of their home games in the Capital. The Grays had featured titans such as Cool Papa Bell and Josh Gibson and consistently brought in the best talent. They won the Negro League World Series in 1948. In the universe where the Grays were directly able to compete against other Major League clubs, they won the MLB World Series in 1948. Their winning play and star power drive their DC attendance through the roof, forcing Senators attendance down to the point where the Griffith family flees West with their tails tucked between their legs. The Grays become a powerhouse fixture of Washington baseball for the decades to come. Presidents would celebrate the opening of the season by throwing out the first pitch at sparkling 40,000 seat Gibson Park. Their uniforms reflect that. No alternate needed. No script other than the primary. Retro cream home uniforms celebrate their past glory complete with navy t-bars and contrasting pockets. In a modern twist, the team adopts marengo gray road uniforms with cream details.

    Definitely Wright's correct uniform, but a HOFer he's not. (and won't be)

    Today the legendary Kansas City Monarchs. My choice of color scheme may be controversial. Instead of the red/white/blue scheme, I've opted for Royal and gold. Historically, the Monarchs used blue and white most frequently. Here, in honor of their regal name, I adjusted the shade to a slightly purple tinge and made gold the complementary color. Design-wise, the Monarchs usually favored the headspoon-over-pinstripes look. However, using that in the present day would violate one of my universal maxims of baseball design. Sublimated pinstripes, though, would allow the Monarchs to connect to their roots without overtly anachronistic uniforms. Thanks to @coco1997 for letting me borrow his crowned heart sleeve patch from the Royals City Edition Series. A version of the classic, raglan striped uniform is the Sunday alternate. Enjoy!

    The issue is the Dome and it's location. The team needs to move....just to where people actually live. It's a 45 Minute drive to go to a game there, and it's all highway with few stops along the way. Who wants to get stuck in 45 mins of traffic going to a night game. Marlins did one thing right- they moved where it's easier to get in and out of the stadium with options on how to get home- or go out for the rest of the night. When the product on the field improves consistently- I can see it being similar to a heat game during the lebron era. They just need to make the market give a bleep. The Rays can't do anything in the middle of a industiral area in a ballpark that was once a convention center and a hockey arena. It's almost like those abandoned shopping malls you see on TV in apocalypse movies.

    Most teams haze the rookies by wearing them dress up or grab Starbucks outside of Wrigley. The Rays'll haze rookies by making them panhandle for stadium funds.

    Today we have the evolution of the Memphis Red Sox, The Memphis Blues. This one was a fairly obvious choice. With a glorious tradition of blues music alive and well on Beale Street and multiple MLB teams named after hosery, transitioning to a musical nickname seemed like the right move for Memphis. Especially there was also a short lived Negro League team in Memphis called the Blues. Moreover, it gave a perfect opportunity to make use of the Memphis Redbirds' new neon sign theme which actually fits better for the Blues than it has for the Cardinals' affiliate. The color scheme is based off of the signage of Rum Boogie Cafe's Blues Hall Juke Joint on Beale which happens to be one of my personal favorite places on Earth. The sleeve patch is an Epiphone guitar reminiscent of BB King's famous Lucille, with the team name on the neck. Pants have extra thick stripes in team colors while the jersey has none. Frankly the script looks too good to clutter it up with anything else.
