2013 MLB Logo and Uniform Changes

3,214 posts in this topic

This post will be updated to include new changes as we find out about them,

Confirmed changes

The Astros return to navy and orange with a total rebrand. Navy, orange and navy/orange caps. Orange alternate jersey

The Mets will be getting two blue alternates (home orange letters with white outline, road gray letters with orange outline) and an alternate cap (orange brim and white outline on NY). Also, ASG patches.

The Cardinals are adding a cream "St. Louis" alternate jersey and relegating the navy caps to alternate status.

The White Sox will be wearing 1983 throwbacks again (possibly for Sunday home games)

The Nationals are getting a new cap

The Rays are using the fauxback uniforms as regular alternates

The Reds are at very least adding a cap.

The Rockies will use a 20th anniversary patch

The Pirates are wearing early '70s throwbacks with mustard caps for Sunday home games.

Rumors

Marlins 20th anniversary patch

I would like to see the Pirates mustard yellow cap incorporated in somehow. It definitely looks better than the current alternate.

All of the rumored changes mentioned in the first post are long overdue (with the exception of the ChiSox throwbacks, which I am neutral on).

But I too would love to see the Pirates bring back the mustard cap in some capacity. The current alternate is so pointless--just the regular "P" with a detached white outline. It's every bit as pointless as one of those one-game Wild Card caps.

I think the Pirates P looks really nice with a white outline.

I think the Cards look so much better in red on the road.

Every year I wish that this would be the season the Brewers blow it up and start again, but we'll have to wait another year.

I wish the Rockies would put "Rockies" on their purple jersey. Makes no sense that it says "Colorado". Also, ditch the ugly black vests, make the purple-brimmed black hat their primary hat, and get a new logo!

The A's will somehow have to work in gold trim for their opening day uniforms. B)

The Brewers are not changing their roads to say Milwaukee. Speculation over.

While there aren't many teams making changes for next year, the ones that are may surprise you.

What makes you so sure of all this?

Not out of the question. They've worn alternate tops on Opening Day before

Lifted from the "New Houston Astros Uniforms thread":

It's probably the Cardinals fan in me, but I like when teams have a road cap that's different from the home cap.

Enjoy 2012 for as long as you can...

I hope the Nats aren't tweaking their home and road uniforms - again.

The Nats are desperate for a tweak. Their look is a complete mess.

Don't count on one anytime soon. The look they have now is the one in which they tallied baseball's best record, so they might just pull a Denver Broncos and keep that look for the foreseeable future.

Any truth to the Nats tweaking their uniforms - again, NDwas?

And as I said on that thread, if the Nats flame out in the playoffs, their record this year won't matter. It's not like their win total is even approaching an historical level.

Quick - without Google, what team had the best record in baseball last year? The year before? 2007?

It's great to be in a position to hold that title, but on its own "best record in baseball" is a meaningless stat.

The Cardinals are supposedly dropping the navy caps.

I asked this in the Astros topic (where I first saw this mentioned), and am curious - does this mean the Sunday alt caps (what my nephew calls the "solo bird" caps) are on their way out, too?

I'm what they might call "in the loop."

Oh, and the Nats aren't changing anything either.

Cubs? They'd qualify as a surprise, even if they are overdue for some changes.

The Mets will be getting a blue alternate and dropping the black jerseys and caps.

I think they only wore them 2-3 times all season. All at home on days honoring past players from those days. I was amazed at the restraint.

Not such a big fan of Santana picking the snow whites everytime though. I thought it was supposed to be a day/night thing.

Are the Marlins going to have any changes?

I'm guessing they may have a 20 year patch like the Rockies are doing.

I still think they need to be wearing the orange hat more especially with the home unis.

Absolute shame they don't wear them more.

I went out and bought the orange cap immediately after the unveiling. How many times did they actually wear it...three times maybe? And I don't even think they wore them with the orange jerseys once. The Marlins also need to ease up on the black alts. Their gray roadies are actually pretty underrated and should have been worn more than they were.

I think they wore them three times counting pre season, the only time we saw the orange hats with the black jerseys and the only appearance if the orange helmet.

It's a damn shame because a lot of the players were embracing orange accessories especially Stanton withthe orange Compression sleeve. The orange should be the home hat and atleast worn with the orange jerseys every once and a while. The orange hats outnumber the black down in Miami. It's there chance to be unique and the fans love them

There was all this talk from the FO at the beginning of the season about all the uniform combinations and ultimately it was all a let down. A lot of people hate the white script on the road but I really like it. The colors really stand out and I love the orange dropshadow of the numbers against the gray.

Ultimately I'm waiting for blue alt or yellow alt jersey. http://mshop.mlb.com/product/index.jsp?productId=13001055

If anyone has seen the standard marlins fashion hat in yellow I linked above. I think an alternate with the white M logo and word mark would look awesome and be different. Even a yellow jersey worn with black hat would look good

Here's the blue color hat.

I'm think we may see another alt In 2015 or 2016.

I'm very disappointed that the Cards are ditching the Navy road caps. I love that look.
