MLB changes I'd love to see

Recommended Posts

Just thought I'd post some ideas for some MLB teams that I feel have really missed the boat on having some sweet unis. I think the Padres are an obvious one so I'm starting with them. It's a throwback obviously, but with a few alterations/updates that I hope look nice. Cheers!

Great look - i’ve loved brown for the padres and you make it work with their current identity really really well here!

 

Can’t wait to see more!

Another no-brainer (IMHO) is Tampa Bay. Honestly, you have one of the coolest animals in the world and you switch your branding to a starburst? And a crappy one at that! I'm not sure I love this design but I know I like it better than what they have today.

Re-working the Marlins is like shooting fish in a barrel (pun intended). Much like Tampa Bay, they had a cool animal logo and then they went and ruined it. Plus, they started out with a nice color scheme and then completely buggered that up too. Note: In next iteration I'll probably do a second cap style.

These are all really nice! All of these sets would be big improvements over what these teams currently wear. 

 

One thing I'm not big on with Miami is the road script not matching the home one. And could we see close-ups of your Rays and Marlins logos?

Just an FYI but MLB guidelines do not permit white undersleeves. 

Thanks for the reminder! I believe it was because of the Oakland A's? Something about the ball being hard to pick up off the pitchers sleeve.

I'd like to see your take on the Brewers and Rockies, two other teams, in my opinion, in desperate need of an identity refresh.

Always liked the Phillies logo from the 70's so this is sorta throwback but hopefully modern enough updates.

Next up - Colorado. They have a pretty nice and unique color scheme butI find their current logos pretty weak, they could definitely use some beefing up.

You're right about the Miami script - I'll try to update that when I have some time. Here is the closeup...

Wow, that is a fantastic Rockies set! One of the best I've seen.

 

I like what you did with Philadelphia too, using just the "P" across all three jerseys. It's a strong logo so it works. One suggestion I have is to replace the dark blue/navy with powder blue so there's better contrast with the maroon. And maybe add double outlines to the front numbers on the alt for consistency, too.

 

Keep up the great work!

I just can't get on board with the brown and yellow Padres. I know that is probably in the minority.

 

The presentation and design is otherwise great.

How would the Rockies wordmarks look without the beveling?

Did a quick test and it looks better. Will try to update when I can.
