2017 World Baseball Classic

Back in September Japan changed the jersey they'll be wearing for the WBC, along with other international competitions. Here are two pics below. Of note, the article I read insists the cap the away jersey and the letters on the home jersey are a dark navy blue and are not black. They sure look black to me especially the away jersey so I question this but we shall see...

Just for reference here's a reminder of what Japan wore in the 2013 WBC. I always hated the two different word marks. They look like two different teams from the same country. Kinda how the Yankees and Mets both have jerseys that say New York across the chest but they're clearly different teams...

Has anyone heard anything on how the 2017 wbc jerseys will look? I'm curious because I found this... a few weeks ago MLBPA had a community event and a baseball clinic for kids in Puerto Rico. Several MLB players were in attendance and while this didn't seem to be a WBC specific event, all of the attending players have committed to the WBC and were at the event in WBC jerseys. These could very well have been random jerseys made up for the players this one day but being so close to the 2017 wbc it makes me wonder if these are signs of the next wbc uniforms. Also it is noticeable that these are new designs, if they wanted to wear any random jerseys they could have probably found leftover jerseys from the 2013 wbc but they did not. Also it's glaring that Jose Altuve is wearing a Venezuela jersey with their new red blue and yellow color scheme and not the old maroon one they've traditionally worn so his is definitely something new. Here's a few pics of the event, the jerseys aren't all easy to make out because they weren't the focus of most of the pics. Chris Archer is in the USA jersey, Francisco Lindor Puerto Rico, Oliver Perez Mexico, Jose Altuve Venezuela, and Colome Dominican Republic. Notice that except for Mexico all teams shown are now in (psuedo) vests with different colored sleeves.

New Jerseys are up for sale on the WBC site. Not a huge fan of the vest look a lot of them have going on. Interesting to see the US team has a graphite away jersey, wonder if we'll be seeing that out of more teams?

Looks like the WBC gear is starting to roll out. No major changes - any idea what the jersey's will look like?

USA baseball really needs a new logo 

 

Maybe I just missed the last couple, but isn't Venezuela way different?

Yes, Venezuela previously wore maroon and gold.

Also does anyone else see the difference in the USA wordmarks?  The bottom right of the A's come to different points.

They are all the same. Disappointing. 

 

They've all been the roughly same template with the exception of the '06 WBC. '09 had the underarm pannels, '13 was the BP style, and this year with the vest look.

I'm a huge baseball fan, and these jerseys are severely underwhelming. I don't like the templated jersey idea whatsoever, and it's a shame to see so many great possibilities go to waste because of the cookie cutter approach.

Additionally, they appear to be standard doubleknit.  No Flex Base or COOLBASE or the BP materials this go around.  Maybe Majestic doesn't see the point in pushing a new fabric since they'll be out of the MLB jersey business in 2 years.

Same style but different colored jerseys? What is this? The Little League World Series for grownups?

Venezuela in blue looks awful. The national teams are literally known as La Vinotino - The Burgundy.

 

The USA wordmark is beyond terrible as well.

The USA Bacon strip is a pretty solid representation of our core values

Canada is the only one that really looks good there because it actually looks like their flag. Besides that everything is weak. Cuba and Puerto Rico look like they can get away with the vest look fine. In general though vests are an alternate and don't work for everyone so a vest shouldn't have been the default look. And why is it that Mexico gets away with no vests? Also I'm pretty positive Japan and Korea don't follow these garbage team plates so why don't the other countries have their own looks as well? Makes me think it's the fault of the countries and not MLB and or the WBC. It's like MLB said "create any jersey you want but if you don't we'll give you this default fake vest" and then instead of one or two teams going to the default vest almost every team took the easy way out to the fake vest and only a couple made their own looks. If that's the case the teams are at fault. Shame.

Maybe it's time for the WBC and Olympics to states that national federation logos cannot be used on uniforms, like what the Olympics did with hockey.

Sad that the USA continues to have one of the worst and least baseball like looks in the classic. Really, really, bad.

As of right now, Korea is most likely to wear what we wore for the 2015 WBSC Premier 12.

The uniforms would be even more generic than they are now.
