I can't remember an off-season where the only uniform news was BP caps.

Majestic contract up after this season. No real reason to change, knowing that a league wide change is happening.

 

Always possible, like in the NHL/NBA but unlikely

Don't forget the new Rockies regular alternate hat. Might see one or two new alternate hats yet.

Please tell me this isn’t true. 

That's a big crock of crap.  If they're using seat color at Petco as the reason, they're delusional.

 

Many ballparks have seats that don't match the color of the team.  PNC Park, Citi Field, ATT Park, and Dodger Stadium all come to mind.

Not to mention the ballparks that have the wrong logos and names plastered all over the place.

I'd guess that it's about a $5 million job to change out 40,000 seats.  Padres probably can afford it or finance it.

I think it is still early. A lot of uniform changes get announced at team fan functions and a lot of those won’t take place until after the new year.

Yep, and Nats Park's scoreboard still includes the block script we haven't used in 5 or 6 years

Different sport, but Capital One Arena (I need a I Still Call It Verizon Center shirt) has purple seats.  The Caps and Wiz obviously don't use purple.  Zero people notice or care.  Celtics have yellow and black seats (fine for the Bruins) in their arena, no one cares.  

 

Basically, it is a chicken s*** excuse if that is the reason the Padres don't move to brown.  Although personally I prefer their late 90's uniforms anyways.

I love the RANGERS, but stale uniforms is to say it lightly...I'd love a total re-do...going light blue, red, and black. Still would love to see the cowboy hat logo make a comeback on some of their logo'd stuff!!! Come on @Rangers @NewbergReport

Wow.  This whole time I've never actually thought about that.  I guess the arch being similar to the arch of the scoreboard made it always seem natural to me.

Replace black with navy and you’ve got a great plan. You’ve gotta think they’ll have a rebrand for the new ballpark right? (Also globe life park is just a terrible name, doesn’t roll of the toung and it isn’t a recognizable brand)

It's too early to see most of the stuff but any changes that are coming would have already been reported on and/or at least hinted on by people who have seen them.

Now with a domed stadium, the Rangers can afford to use the new black some with light blue and red...maybe even a brick red like our Frisco team uses. Obviously, I like me some change!!! :D

That's crazy, they already got 5 jerseys, the latest one coming last season.

Unless one is being replaced.  I'm going to assume it will be a road red alternate or a red "patriotic" jersey

So that's what it is.  But when I clicked on the link, it reverted back to the blue Stars and Stripes jersey

I like almost anything with that wordmark on it, but they've got to stop with all these alternates.  Reverse the colors on this, make it the primary, and call it a day.
