2014 MLB Changes (logo, uniform wise, etc)

Recommended Posts

It's been already listed on MLB Shop since earlier this week (and for sale at the Coliseum). Surprised they never made anything formal until now despite all that going on

They look terrible. Combining road placket with home sleeve stripes. What a confusing identity

They are just meddling & tinkering with a perfect set just for the sake of sales. It's really bothersome when marketers feel like they have to freshen up a classic look and inevitably cheapen the look.

What a downgrade for the A's. I was really hoping the cap would just be for the alternate jerseys, but it looks like it's actually going to be the full-time road.

The Giants alts are downgrades as well. The previous orange uniforms weren't that great, but they weren't this mess. The Giants are MLB's black team; the Orioles are orange. Also, I notice in the game screenshot that Bumgarner is wearing the orange bill cap. Previously San Francisco only wore them on Sunday games.

Wait, that terrible new A's cap isn't just an alt, but is going to replace their all green cap with the gold A's logo?

WTF, A's?!

There is ZERO white on their road set, why the hell would they introduce a white lettered logo to that set? How bush league.

I might have jumped the gun on that one. I saw the new cap labeled as the "Road" on MLB.com, but now that I look around in their shop some more, I see the old road cap for sale. Maybe there's still hope.

There's zero white on the Braves, Astros and Dodgers uniforms too. Some say the Yankees should drop the white outline on the road set. It's really not that bush league.

My biggest problem with the A's hat is not just that there's white; it's that the designer specifically went out of their way to emphasize the white by adding the gold outline. I personally liked the gold logo on the old road cap, but I don't think there'd be this much dislike if the A's were to just start wearing the homes full-time.

A's finally acknowledged and announced the new road cap

Compared to the outgoing cap that's a piece of crap. Easily the worst of the 3 road caps the A's have worn in the last 20 years. Very disappointed they'd make such an obvious downgrade.

At least the caps finally match the jersey though. It always bothered me that the coloring on the script on the green jersey didn't match that of the cap.

It's worlds better than any cap with black on it.

My problem remains that the gold outline is so thick it obscures the actual letters. The "s" becomes a rectangular blob, even in that close-up product photo.

With the Giants hat, from what I recall. It was originally supposed to be woren with the orange jersey but they scrapped that when they noticed how different the two different fabrics came out in their respective orange colors.

But at least the three logos you pointed out were a single color (Astros don't count. That's BY FAR the most bush league look in Major League Baseball). If the A's were to wear their home hat exclusively then that's one thing. While I'd miss the road cap, at least it's a professional looking cap. This A's cap makes the main focus a color that's not even on the road jersey, and outlines it with a color that doesn't contrast at all. It's a terrible cap and it'll be a real shame if it's the new full time road cap.

I guess it'd look ok with the new green alt, but barely.

They wore the orange brim hat with the original orange alts a few times, I know I've seen it before. The only different color orange I can recall is on the BP hat, which I own. The color of orange is way darker on the BP hat and when they wore it during their series with the A's last season, it was really obvious.
