  1. I just don't get what this design has to do with Atlanta or the Braves. At least for a time we had the jerseys and caps based off uniforms from the host team's history.
  2. This isn't the fault of Colorado getting the game, this is the fault of them getting the game only a couple of months before it. I'm sure if they get a multiple years headstart like every other city does the designs would be way better.
  3. How's the Astros logo gonna look on that?
  4. Now that someone mentioned the Yankees, I'm thinking there is no way for the Yankees to have a successful city connect uniform. The Yankees home uniform is already the city connect uniform for the Bronx, if not the majority of the state of New York except for obviously Queens.
  5. Agreed. There's some positives but this is very little about Hispanic heritage and Arizona and is more just "a desert jersey." In that sense I guess it works, the reveal video pretty much nails how it looks best, blending in with sand and rocks and a couple of cactus. This would also be Luke Skywalker's favorite CC jersey. It could pass for the jersey of the Tatooine baseball team.
  6. Suggestion, what if the Cubs outlined the Wrigleyville letters in red? That would mimmick the white letters being against the red sign, obviously it's the red of the 6 point stars as well, and of course it would provide a spark of color to the whole uniform.
  7. Have they said why the Cubs are using navy? There's no navy on the Chicago flag.
  8. The only thing I don't like about the White Sox one... it feels like this is for a very specific target audience, like more specific than usual. I can't see a Chicago businessman grabbing one of these jerseys when he visits the ballpark after leaving the office early to catch a game. It's too "street" for my tastes,
  9. One thing I've noticed with both Miami and now the White Sox City Connect, even if the uniforms have faults, the really strong wordmarks are making for some excellent hoodies. I'm a Marlins fan and can't see myself wearing their city connect jersey but I'd love to eventually grab the hoodie version, and I can see the same for the White Sox one. The hoodie displays the best part of the CC jerseys and let's you get away from whatever doesn't work about the jerseys.
  10. Not sure if anyone realized it but Miami had new pants, they just had a single blue stripe, Miami's regular pants have a blue, black and red piping normally.
  11. There's probably no use trying to figure out any of this but anyone have any idea of the logic behind choosing the World Series patches on the side of a lot of the caps? Why certain years were chosen over others with teams that have multiple championships?
  12. Marlins and Rays had the exact same designs too and that's two cities like 5 hours apart from each other. Anyone check if the Dodgers and Angels or other similar cities had matching designs?
  13. Yeah this is all true but there's a lot of bad hats out there that get plenty of criticism and hate especially through social media and they don't get pulled. So the backlash on this one had to be beyond bad for them to pull this thing within hours.
  14. Does anyone have images for all 30 caps? I'm dying to know what's on several specific ones now.
  15. Those dates are the dates of the first games the unis are to be worn, those aren't the unveilings.
  16. I think two tone caps look immensely better with the brighter color on the brim than the crown. As a kid I loved the Marlins teal crown/black brim a lot because it's the cap I owned and wore more than any other cap but now I own an inverted one like the one above and it looks way better to me.
  17. The player is Josh Johnson. Fans loved this look and loved this cap, it was said to be their top seller. I don't think it was a conscious effort to not use the orange caps and accessories but ownership and the players leaned so much towards the black caps that the orange stuff became such a rarity. 5 total games throughout seven seasons? That's a crime. After some "outrage" when they were only worn 3 times in the first season and zero times the second season the team announced in 2014 that it would be worn for every Friday home game but even then they didn't stick to it and by the third Friday home game someone chose to go with the black caps and they never went back to the orange even though it always still existed and was available to them. In 2018 the Marlins made a change to the size of the cap logo and the orange caps were produced with this new change. So it had been four years since they were last worn but they were still being made for the team. Why bother making it if wearing it wasn't even an option right? Don Mattingly randomly wore the orange cap while managing an All Star Game in Japan in November of 2018, less than two weeks before the team rebranded and officially ended the orange cap. This one almost felt like a farewell to the cap. And oddly on that night, Marlins players in the game wore the black caps, Mattingly being the only one wearing the orange one.
  18. When the Miami Marlins rebranded in 2012 they had an orange batting helmet that was only used in a pre season exhibition game and never again: That same game was the only time they wore the orange caps with their black jerseys: And of course the orange caps was only worn after that four times during a regular season game, twice in 2012 and twice in 2014, with only a few players actually going with orange undershirts and/or socks:
  19. Really? I thought that was just a disappointing Netflix series.
  20. As a die hard fan of my team I feel ashamed of myself if I can't identify a player by face and/or number but at the same time I can't expect the same level of knowledge and commitment to the team for every fan at a game so I'm not cool with this idea that fans are too lazy to look up the roster on their phone. Do you expect people to do that after every pitching change or other substitution? That's silly. If I'm casually at a game with my family I just wanna look at the field and know what's happening without having to whip out my phone and google things so I can see how NOB does help the casual fans. Not everything has to cater to die hard fans.
  21. I love the ASG logo except the silver underline looks like it's part of the star and so the start looks to be shaped wrong, like it has 7 points instead of 5. I'd love if that underline was gone.
  22. Some of the Armed Forces Weekend caps, mostly all white logos but those with multiple colors have varying amounts of black in them, to mixed results: Of the ones with black and white some like Miami and Baltimore and Arizona work better while others like Colorado and Seattle aren't very good.
