    Their jerseys with the "saw blade" design were fantastic.

    Welcome to the 90's

    I don't think there was a direct connection, but some of the same thought process as far as marketing directly to kids was there...the 90s were when the "sports as family entertainment" mindset really took hold (as opposed to something geared principally towards adults who were fans of the sport) - and what's a kid more likely to want on his t-shirt, this: or this?:

    MiLB teams with MLB-caliber identities

    Now that I think about it, in the early 90s, you could have had a whole league of clubs playing in major-league cities with MLB-caliber identities: (we're fortunate that the baseball card boom of that era gave us great visual evidence of all of these, and that the cards' photographers tended to take really boring shots of the players.)
