    Hmmm. I'm sure it looks pretty good but my preference would be to have the logo in the regular tones but on that bright blue cap. So basically not sure if I should spend money on this or hold out for what I'm looking for. I'm also wondering how much these players weekend things will be a week from now. After the ASG the Marlins team store down here was selling every remaining bit of ASG merch for 50% off.

    Is it true the yellow on the top of the M is the bright almost neon yellow and not the regular yellow they normally have? That would be a huge turn off for me.

    Umm... hey guys... sooo... the Pirates and especially the Cardinals looked pretty good tonight all things considered. I'm not buying this stuff about this bringing out the players personalities for the Players Weekend next week but as far as being a representation of Little League baseball, tonight's matchup and presentation looked great to me. It'll probably be overkill next weekend for most series but I was ok with the Cardinals and Pirates looking as good as they did playing in front of so many kids and doing the 16 kid first pitch and the post game high fives thing and all the pregame interaction with the kids and all that stuff. Seems like, or my guess is, the original solid idea was the Little League Classic for this one game but then MLB saw a money making opportunity with the uniforms and thus extended it to all 30 teams for an entire weekend and so they jumped the shark and fabricated a B.S. celebration of the personalities that players either already have or don't have. Oh well. But like I said, for this one game, not bad.

    Haven't seen any clips yet but the Pirates and Cardinals definitely had two of the better uniforms in the set so it'll be tough for any other matchup to look as good though some just might.

    Are we positive the Nats are using black for the players weekend? I feel like that's just a dark navy. Has anyone seen the jersey in person to confirm or deny this?

    As much as people like us hate these gimmicks mostly because of how bad they look on the field, more than we care to admit actually are great looking fashion caps and jerseys and thus yes they do sell. It actually makes perfect sense from a fan perspective as opposed to being an on field thing. I don't love seeing my team wearing pink caps for mothers day but my wife loves her pink Marlins cap and she wears it proudly and I think it looks great on her. I didn't buy one this year but my brother in law is in the military and I love the memorial day caps from this year I'd wear it if I had one even though I'm not a fan of seeing my team wear it on the field. So bottom line is no matter how much we hate them on the field fans will buy them. Gotta remember too that casual fans outnumber us uniform junkies and traditionalists by far.

  8. Players in the "wrong" uniforms

    Too soon to put all of MLB in this thread when they wear the players weekend uniforms?
  9. Pink Uniforms

    I think pink can work in sports but I disagree with it having to be in Florida. I live in Miami and the thought of pink as a Miami or South Florida color is a product of the 80s and the Miami Vice TV show that was exploding with pastels like pink and teal. That look no longer truly exists here with the exception of some beat up older apartments on the beach that were built in the 80s or before. Since then everything else has been updated and remodeled and pink is gone. Nobody dresses in the 80s pastels anymore, the buildings and artwork don't look like that anymore. It's all gone. If we're just talking about how a pink sports team would have looked here back in the 80s or 90s that's fine but now it's 2017 and pink is no longer synonymous with Miami and South Florida.

    That Expos one looks amazing. So now that I've thought about this thing for a couple of days I realize MLB could have done this and not make it as garish by just going to more of an 80s little league look, or even dare I say the softball top look. Some of the uniforms are close but aren't there yet. I think the look they should have aimed for, which would look and feel like the little leagues but could still produce some nicer looking jerseys is this one... Solid bright colored cap, solid color top with appropriately colored collar and cuff piping. The pants belt isn't necessary but the obvious biggest difference here is the sleeves. The awkward faux vest look of the sleeves of the players weekend jerseys is just plain bad, I have no clue why the sleeves are there or why they cut off right at the shoulder. For an MLB comparison from the 80s, I think most of us would be better able to accept if the teams on that weekend looked like this... I think it's pretty obvious that the above little league uniforms were inspired by this type of uniform from the 70s and 80s so why not go full circle and have MLB wear these for the players weekend? With that said, if MLB really wanted contrasting colors on the sleeves, there was a better way to do that too... raglan sleeves. I don't know how raglan sleeves came into existence but whenever I see them I think of old style kids baseball uniforms like these, in the pic on the left that's actually Gary Sheffield... I prefer the first pic above but either of these options would have improved the players weekend uniforms. Anyways let's all rejoice that they aren't (yet) taking inspiration from the more recent Little League World Series uniforms such as this...

    Don't little league uniforms generally use the same number fonts across the league? As in the guy that gets the uniforms made takes them all to the same printing company and asks them to print all the numbers in the same font? That's gotta be the reason all these jerseys use the same number font. It actually doesn't bother me because of that.

    I'm curious if the Marlins lucked out and got their correct unique shade of blue on the caps. I'd love to have a side by side comparison of their players weekend caps to the blue homerun derby cap or the AL ASG jersey to see how close the blues are. Also, I just noticed the Marlins are the only one to not match the cap to the sleeves, they've matched the cap to the torso color. And while most are excited they're finally wearing a blue cap, I'm thinking their unused red-orange cap would have looked great for that weekend. That cap is the epitome of a bright kid friendly cap. Plus people actually like that cap and it fits the team color as opposed to, for example, the Dodgers wearing bright blue for no reason at all.

    Ah crap... just realized I already have tickets to one of the players weekend games. How can I possibly prep my eyes for this?
  14. MLB Changes 2017

    I don't get it. The marketing doesn't make sense. The players already get to wear whatever they want as far as cleats and batting gloves and sleeves and etc. How is putting them in awkwardly bright colors supposed to let them show their personalities or whatever? Do the games not count and they can do back flips while running to first base? The players with personality like Bryce Harper already show that off every night, why is it suddenly different for the players weekend? Is Bryce Harper gonna suddenly be different even though he already is a bright personality every other game anyways? Are traditional classy veteran players like Ichiro gonna suddenly play like the young energetic guys? I can't imagine that this suddenly means Ichiro is gonna do a bat flip and taunt the opposing pitcher if he gets a hit that weekend. "Oh every other game throughout the season I play without energy and without showing my personality but now that I have this bright hat and a nickname on my back well NOW you'll really get to see me have fun so don't miss these three games!" This is illogical and borderline insulting. I saw Jose Fernandez play with intensity and excitement and passion every five days for 4 seasons in Miami while playing like a kid and while still playing to win without stupid promotional gear and without a nickname on his back. You don't need this merchandising garbage to show kids how baseball can be fun. This is stupid.

    Also I'm starting to be convinced that the Little League weekend thing doesn't exist outside of that one game the Pirates and somebody else are playing in. Someone saw these players weekend caps and jerseys and mistakenly called them Little Legaue uniforms confusing it with the Pirates game.
