MLB in 2020 - Chicago White Sox (6/30)

132 posts in this topic

Inspired by the MLB x Under Armour deal announcement and by this article which talks about the need of modernizing the baseball uniforms, I decided to start this series, in which I'll be imagining how the MLB teams could look like within 3 years.

 

Unlike in my tweak series, I won't be making changes based on my personal criteria/taste, but on what I think teams could do, given past designs and current design trends.

 

I'll be using three designs as template:

58f3cbca4d075_UAMLBBase3.thumb.png.2c328635446d9008cc49df927465b357.png

 

The first and second designs will be used for the home and road uniforms, while the third will be used for certain alts.

I know they aren't as "radical" as the article aforementioned suggests, but I'm trying to be realistic, and that's why I've applied just some tweaks which would make the uniforms more comfortable for the players.

 

I'll place the team list and order here, linking each one to its corresponding designs after having finished them:

 

ALE

Baltimore Orioles

Boston Red Sox

New York Yankees

Tampa Bay Rays - V.2

Toronto Blue Jays

 

ALC

Chicago White Sox

Let's start with the O's!

 

Under Armour is a Baltimore-based company, and they are proud to show it, as we can see in some of the Maryland Terrapins uniforms. That's why I decided to change the traditional pipping on the sleeves and pants, for a design inspired by the Baltimore flag.

The home, road and home alt uniforms remain the same, introducing the Baltimore wordmark for road alt, dropping the cap with the O's script.

I also decided to reintroduce the swinging bird as sleeve patch.

Awesome idea for a series! I'll be keeping a close eye on it. ;)

Great start! I'd like to see the piping go completely around the sleeve, though.

Moving on to Boston!

 

The Red Sox look is so iconic that there's not much to change. I decided to bring back the navy baselayer, the double sleeve and pants pipping, and the classic sock designing, as well as the predominantly navy wordmark for the road uniform.

Other than the blue wording on the road jersey, this would be a fantastic look for the sox. Their alternates could definitely use some striping, and i like the look you went with here. Good work!

This looks promising. Will be following very closely as it progresses.

Only edit on Boston is match the script and numbers on the road jersey. I'm of two minds about red or blue but either way it just needs to be consistent.

The idea of using the mainly navy script comes from my Tweak Series. I think it looks more balanced in that way.

Fixed!

I've also updated the Orioles set:

Time for the Bronx Bombers!

 

Classic set for the Yankees: the home and road uniform remain the same, changing the navy cap for a grey one for the last one. I decided to add two alts: one white and other navy, using 1927/30 and 1931/72 wordmarks.

The Yankees look great. For the road alt, I would put the "NY" logo on the chest rather than the "New York" wordmark.

Nice work on the Yankees, although I'd prefer something more along these lines (possibly even with Under Armour's faux-flannel pattern) for the away uniform.

IMG_3557.JPG.6ce12a1da0b55680899a233b5262296d.JPGPlus I think the gray cap would look better with a solid navy logo rather than what you have now. But either way this is some great work so far in this series, and I look forward to seeing more.

Nice work with the flannel. I think this is the route they will/should go. Now that you don't have the white outline, you don't need the white piping (or any piping, for that matter).
