I think there might be a disconnect between the team name and your color scheme. When I hear the word "outlaw,"...

I agree.  That nagging thought was going through my head as I was making the neon set.

Despite I like the latest colour scheme used for Las Vegas, given the team name is Outlaws, I think your first idea was totally on point.

This is what the rest of the uniforms were for that line.

Yeah, despite not being flashy or "Vegasy," those colors fit the team name better and the concept looks like a more realistic MLB team.

A quick update on my Diamondbacks update.

Looking good! Which other teams do you plan to go back and tweak?

Also, I just noticed that the Outlaws' color scheme is very similar to the D-Backs' 2007-15 look. Not that that's a bad thing.

It is the actual color palette from the XFL team: Black, Sand, Red, White.  Yes, it does have a D-Backs '07-'15 vibe to it.

The Cubs, Astros, Brewers, Nationals, Rangers, Mariners, Dodgers, Reds, and Rockies will be simple reposts using my new template. The Phillies, Angels, Indians, and Beavers will have a few more updates from when I first posted them. Vancouver is getting a port to my new template as well as another design concept for the city.

Touching back to the subject of American vs National league idea, in light of the Oakland A's progress of staying in Oakland, this is what I would do in terms of expansion and placement of teams:

 

American League

 

East

1. New York Yankees

2. Boston Red Sox

3. Baltimore Orioles

4. Toronto Blue Jays

5. Tampa Bay Rays

6. Charlotte expansion

 

Central

1. Chicago White Sox

2. Minnesota Twins

3. Cleveland Indians

4. Kansas City Royals

5. Detroit Tigers

6. Texas Rangers (move from the AL West)

 

West

1. LA Angels

2. Oakland A's

3. Seattle Mariners

4. Portland expansion

5. Vancouver expansion

6. Salt Lake City expansion

 

National League

 

East

1. Washington Nationals

2. New York Mets

3. Philadelphia Phillies

4. Atlanta Braves

5. Miami Marlins

6. Montreal expansion

 

Central

1. Cincinnati Reds

2. Milwaukee Brewers

3. Pittsburgh Pirates

4. Houston Astros (move from AL West)

5. St. Louis Cardinals

6. Chicago Cubs

 

West

1. Arizona Diamondbacks

2. San Francisco Giants

3. Colorado Rockies

4. LA Dodgers

5. San Diego Padres

6. Las Vegas expansion

 

I think getting the Rangers out of the West division is long overdue.  Put the Astros back into the National League where they belong.  Get Montreal a team again because it was not the fans that failed the club, it was the :censored:ty owners.  That leaves a lot of expansion for the west coast to work on.  Not sure how well Salt Lake City can handle a MLB team, but they have a population CSA of almost 2.5 million people.

 

Guess I need to do a Salt Lake City concept...

If you're going to adapt a pre-existing identity, Salt Lake City has a rich history of professional and independent minor league baseball identities, most notably the Bees. The only problem is the Bees' color scheme and wordmarks are identical to the Pirates.

 

Then again, it would be funny to have the A's and Bees in the same division. ;)

Ok, here is an update of the Phillies.  Very little was changed from when I first posted it, but more of a general clean up.  I did change the arm patch from something I found on the InterWebs (I can't seem to find it again so I can't give proper credit at this time).

The Phillies look sharp. In addition to the aforementioned changes, the road wordmark is now arched, too, correct?

 

Also, have you given any thought to a Salt Lake City identity?

How about a little update on my Beavers...that didn't sound right.

I created a new alt jersey for the home alternates and placed the previous creation as the away jersey.  Outside of that, small tweaks were done.

Just out of curiosity, have you ever thought about doing batting practice uniforms? I see potential with the Beavers arm patch

Yes, I did end up arching the Philadelphia word mark.  It allowed me to make the type larger and therefor more legible.  Also gave a bit more visual interest.

I'm currently tinkering around with a more up-to-date look for the Bees.  One thing I've done, so far, is move to a more honey color to the yellow.  Yes, not working in Pirate like lettering.

That is a good idea.  I'll go back and do BP looks for all my teams.  I suppose it is a good way to milk this thread even longer! :P

I have the old BP template from Jay Jackson (which I modified his template for my current used one), so I don't know much of what the current trends are for BP jerseys.  From the template I have here is what I created for the Portland Beavers:

I'm going to have to do more research on BP styles, as I don't know much about BPs.

A pullover-style template might be preferable if you're going to do BP jerseys for everyone. 

 

The Bees sound interesting. Looking forward to whatever you cook up!

Ugh, pullovers are the worst.  But that seems to be the current style.

I think the BP jersey paired with the gray pants would look great
