MLB changes 2018?

Recommended Posts

To be fair, I think it will mesh since the current look uses like 5 color's.

 

Also 2nd team this year using the home plate shape for their anniversary logo (Rays being the other)

This is one of those uniforms that are so ugly that I actually kind of like it. It’s the Kramer Portrait of baseball uniforms.

 

Haha. Yes Up there with me with the Chicago Blackhawks NHL 75th anniversary sweaters, which they need to bring back by the way.

I think I heard that the hometeam has to put in the request to Majestic and make all the arrangements for both teams to wear throwbacks (?). Something like that.  

 

I believe this is correct as it is the home team that has to supply the throwback uniforms for the visiting team (since it is the home team's throwback game).

The World Series turned into a CBS procedural, nice.

It's worse than I realized:

Looks like we'll be seeing something new from the Rays tomorrow. Looks to be a throwback hat/uniform to the 1998 original Devil Rays look.

The 1998 logo didn’t have yellow thread, and the mouth of the ray was more outside the oval.  And I think that’s a navy hat. I can already tell you that tease is a better hat logo than the TB, so it’s an upgrade. We’ve talked a lot about how the Rays could add some green...

Ah you're right, I didn't notice that. There does appear to be definitely green and what looks to be purple thread in that picture as well, so possibly a mashup of eras?

Looks to me like the original unused 1998 cap logo but with a yellow outline around the Devil Ray and on a navy cap. The navy and yellow represent today's colors of course so this could be interesting. Has there ever been an anniversary cap created that combined multiple eras of a teams history into a new cap? Pretty sure most teams celebrate anniversaries by wearing throwbacks along with their current stuff but can't remember any team creating some new mashup. This could be interesting.

It looks like the brim is actually a lighter color (purple?) when I zoom in on the pic. I thought it might have just been the lighting, but we see the logo bright and clear. Either that or they made it look like that in the pic for effect.

I would love for the Marlins to bring back teal as their primary color if it meant I never have to see that "Marlins Man" d-bag and his dumb orange shirt & visor sitting behind home plate ever again.

The hat looks blue to me and there's the addition of yellow, so I think it might be an era mashup. Which could be kind of cool.

 

And with the Rays '70s fauxbacks, a combo jersey of eras seems like something they might do.

My guess based off the teaser, perhaps they don't want to do any gradients in it?

Your purple outline looks to be white in the photo. Plus it looks to be a navy background.
