MLB | Uniform Suggestions | IV. Los Angeles Angels navy alternate uni

Recommended Posts

This might become a series of suggestions for MLB uniforms – or not. We'll see.

 

I – Miami Marlins Blue Alternate Uniform

The Miami Marlins of 2018 decided to not wear their orange alternate uniform – which, I guess to most people, was a bummer! When I and millions of other people think of the city of Miami, regardless whether we're baseball fans or not, we think of bright, loud and fresh colors. The ownership of the Marlins apparently not. So, all there's left for the Fish (this year) are a white, a black and a gray road uni. Okay. That's not for me!

 

I have created my own MLB Authentic Uniform template completely in Adobe Illustrator, since Photoshop for some strange reasons isn't working anymore on my Mac. It ain't perfect, but I'm quite content with the result.

 

So here's my blue alternate Marlins uniform – which I would prefer over the pretty decent orange (and probably for always and ever dumped) anytime.

If the Marlins adopted this look, it would immediately become the best jersey in their wardrobe. Good job!

This shade of blue is absolutely striking.  The orange really pops too.

II – New York Mets Orange Alternate Uniform

I'm one of those baseball fans who've always been thinking that the New York Mets should get a permanent orange alternate uniform – simply because of New York's history (New Amsterdam) and Netherland's Oranje tradition. So, here it is...

think you could try a teal variant? I've seen a lot of people use teal and it looks beautiful

 

Sure, tomorrow.

Could we get a royal blue Brewers with the early 90's script

Like the looks of both the Marlins and the Mets. The trim against te bright blue pops and looks greatt great. Love the idea behind a Mets orange jersey. Looks nice. Lots of teams don’t use their color schemes to their full potential. Mets are one of them.

 

Id love to see a

Angles navy uniform

Twins red uniform 

Rays gold uniform

Fantastic work, I'd love to see what you would do for the Twins in their old light blue

I love the Marlins in teal.  The wordmark actually looks like a back-lit art deco sign.  Very Miami.

IV – Los Angeles Angels Navy Alternate Uniform

I actually like the all-red Angels home and road uniform a lot, but they truly deserve a navy alternate as well. Here it is, and, all I can say is: instant buy!

Great work. On a practical level, your Illustrator skills are on point, so great job there. So far your ideas have been of the common-sense variety and maybe not groundbreaking, but that's okay especially when the presentation is done so well. I'd like to see the electric blue Marlins as an over-used regular alternate, and the teal as a fauxback used sparingly. Not sure a navy alt works for the Angels, for me -- I like the navy hats but the jersey reads too much like the Red Sox alt. Ironically I hate that Red Sox alt, so maybe if they dumped it, someone else can claim the look.

This might be sacrilege, but how about a navy Yankees alternate?

 

Ooooooooooh, big time sacrilege! I don't wanna get stoned by my beloved die-hard Yankee rivals! Apart from that, it would look like the Yankees Spring Training uniforms, wouldn't it?

Thanks, Digby. You're absolutely right about my designs: they're NOT groundbreakingly innovative, since Major League Baseball is a very conservative sport/league. I won't design uniforms that wouldn't be possible in the real league, although I wish they had at least a little bit more courage to try out some never-seen-before stuff.

 

About the Angels navy uni: You're right about the similarity with my BoSox's alternate uniform. Yet, I think both unis differ from each other enough, since the Sox don't wear large numbers on the front, plus their jersey has no collar and sleeve piping.
