  1. So, a while back, I saw the Solar Baseball League and I though, man I should do a baseball league. So, here I am now. The New England Baseball League will officially start playing the season of 1998. But for now, I have something that I want y'alls opinion of. Where should I put a team in each of the following (Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut) and what should their name be. Thanks for the help y'all The New England Baseball League... Coming April 6th, 1998!
  2. I made this concept a while ago, inspired by @Big Yellow Flag's Townball II, but without further adieu, here it is. \

This is the big one. I've had the bits and pieces of this one working for two and half years and I finally feel ready enough to get this one out to the public. This project began when I wondered one day what would happen if Nike did something ludicrous and somehow managed to get apparel rights to every single FBS level team. Of course this is seemingly impossible in the real world, but it was fun to think about. Then I took it one step further. Not only would get every FBS football team, but if every FBS football team also had a Division 1 basketball, baseball and hockey team for Nike to get their hands on. So the goal here is one, to actually finish this idea, but more than that, is to see if I can create a unique identity for 130 some teams across 4 different sports. This means that some traditional looks will be changed slightly and some might change drastically. Nevertheless, I'm excited to get this off the ground and share it with you guys. Teams will be posted as I get them done and will be done in a random order I have created with some help from the internet and first up is the Ohio Bobcats of the MAC: (I also will create one of these cool team headers for every team). Ohio's sports have a rather laid back and simplistic look to them. Even with adidas/Russell at the helm of their apparel, they don't have too crazy of a look and I kept that in mind as I designed their uniforms for this. Keeping that in mind, I left their football uniforms pretty much the same as they have been the last couple years. Biggest change here is the addition of real pants stripes as opposed to no stripes or very short stripes. I limited black to an alternate set that would hopefully be worn separately, but in the current state of college football we all know that wouldn't happen. The hockey uniforms are very similar to how the football uniforms go. I did consider shoulder logos for them but I didn't keep them, as it just didn't feel right to me. Baseball uniforms again are very simple and consistent with the rest of the uniforms. Biggest thing here and across the board is that there is no longer a "grey away" designation. Unless a team has grey in their set, I won't be giving a team a grey uniform for baseball. Basketball is consistent with the rest. I didn't want to go full Celtics with Ohio, so the double stripe pattern is on the shoulders and the collar trim is a solid color. On the shorts the waistband is striped and the hem is a solid color. C&C is welcome as always. Given the larger nature of this thread, I'll try and get the next team up as soon as I can.
  4. I have created a forum for all Red Sox fans here in the SportsLogos.net community. Let's go Red Sox!
  5. Howdy there! Been a whole while since I've posted here. But lately I've been drawing up some vintage-inspired pennant designs for all the MLB teams! I love how pennants play with color, fonts, and trying to capture the essence of a team with a few simple shapes. I've had fun exploring different ways to showcase a team and elements of their brand, so to speak. First up, my Jays and the AL East! Boston - kept this extra simple, loved the way the text flowed into the home plate. Blue Jays - Had a eureka moment when I realized I could get the J and the bird's chest shape to line up well. I'm biased but they have the best look in baseball, so it was fun thinking up a retro design for them. Yankees - I wasn't going to give these guys a good nickname. I tried giving it an almost authoritarian look, the pinstripes and font lookin like 1930s-were-not-messing-around-mobster aesthetic. Baltimore - Kind of just split this into three sections, playing with shapes and of course a nod to the awesome Maryland flag. Rays - Was so happy with how this one turned out. They have the blandest brand in the big leagues, I wish they never got rid of the Devil Rays name and look. So I combined a bunch of eras basically! Cheers guys!
  6. When I was in my early teens, my parents bought me NCAA Football 98 for the computer. I really enjoyed the game, and it was very well-designed for the most part: 100+ schools; full-season play with rankings, major bowl games, and major awards; school fight songs; decent playbooks; something approximating logos on the helmets. It was a very good game for the late 1990s---not as good as the Football Pro series overall, but distinctly collegiate and lots of fun. Anyway, despite the overall quality, there were two details that I have since learned were wrong. One, LSU by default wears yellow jerseys over white pants at home in that game. Two, Missouri's colors are green and gold in the game instead of black and gold. (Come to think of it, I think the latter was also the case in that college hoops game for the Super Nintendo even earlier.) I was wondering: have you guys and gals noticed any similar errors in other games? (Incidentally, Football Pro 98 has the Eagles wearing kelly-green-and-gray even though they were in their second season with their current and inferior color scheme.)
  7. NOB = Name on Back of jersey NNOB = No Name on Back of jersey A staple of the MLB uniform nearly 60 years has been the addition of the player’s name on the back of the uniforms. In 1960, the White Sox were the 1st team to add names of the back of their uniforms. By the end of the 1960s, a few other teams, such as the Reds, Cardinals, and Orioles, added names to the back of their uniforms. However, most teams remained NNOB. By the end of the 1970s, most of the teams had NOB on their uniforms. In 1979, the NL had a rule requiring all teams to have NOB on their away uniforms. The AL did not adopt such a rule. By 1990, every team except the Yankees had NOB on their away uniforms, although a few (most notably the Red Sox) remained NNOB on their home jerseys. With a few exceptions, every team (except the Yankees) continues to have NOB on their away jerseys to this day. Let’s breakdown each team’s NOB on jersey history. First the American League teams. White Sox – The team that started the trend in 1960. However, only the road jerseys had NOB as the home whites remained NNOB. Due to the Sox changing their uniforms every 5-10 seasons (until 1991), I don’t know if they had NOB in 1964 (when they switched from road grays to powder blue), 1967 (another road uniform change) or 1969 (when they went back from powder blue to gray). In addition, the White Sox would go back and forth from NOB to NNOB though the 1990s. http://exhibits.baseballhalloffame.org/dressed_to_the_nines/uniforms.asp?league=AL&city=Chicago&lowYear=1960&highYear=1971&sort=year&increment=9 In 1971, the White Sox had yet another uniform change, with red as the prominent color. These uniforms (plus the road powder blues) had NNOB. Angels @ White Sox from 1974 In 1976, the White Sox changed again to an early 20th-century inspired look with navy blue as the prominent color. NOB of jersey returned with this look, which lasted through the 1981 season. The 1982-1986 “Winning Ugly” uniforms also had NOB. In 1987, however, The White Sox had yet another uniform change which lasted through the 1990 season. Originally, the uniforms were NNOB but the road jerseys were NOB in 1990 (The final season of Comiskey Park). In 1991, the White Sox changed their uniforms again when New Comiskey Park/US Cellular Field opened (yes, I know the park has another name change in recent years, but I will keep calling it either New Comiskey or the Cell.) In reality, this look premiere sooner than intended and debuted during the last month of the 1990 season, due to how popular this look would become. White Sox @ Red Sox from 1990 (Red Sox clinch AL East) Mariners @ White Sox from 1990 (final game at Comiskey Park) Unlike their previous looks, this White Sox look has remained mostly consistent to this day. However, when these uniforms debuted, the home jerseys had NNOB while the away gray jersey and the black alt jerseys had NOB. In 1997, NOB were added to the home jersey, which have stuck ever since. Indians – Another team that has had different looks throughout its long history. Not sure when exactly the Indians added NOB to their jerseys. The earliest is at least 1968 as evidence of the all-star game that year where an Indians player was the starting pitcher for the AL. This Indians uniform lasted from 1963 to 1969. http://exhibits.baseballhalloffame.org/dressed_to_the_nines/uniforms.asp?league=AL&city=Cleveland&lowYear=1960&highYear=1975&sort=year&increment=9 1968 All Star Game @ Houston The Indians changed their uniforms multiple times in the early 1970s. Not sure if NOB remained. For most of the 1970s, the Indians were known for their bright red uniforms with the caveman-like font. Those uniforms had NOB. All of the Indians uniforms ever since had had NOB from the 1979-1985 look, the Charlie Sheen in Major League I & II look from 1986-1993, the World Series contending years of the 1990s & 2000s when their ballpark was known as Jacobs Field, to the current post-Chief Wahoo era of today. Tigers – The Tigers added NOB at least as early as the 1971 season and have remained on the team’s uniforms since. Not sure about 1969 or 1970, but they were still NNOB in 1968. 1968 World Series (Tigers @ Cardinals) 1971 All Star Game in Detroit Twins – Not sure exactly when the Twins added NOB to their jerseys. By 1977 (as seen from an episode of “This Week in Baseball”), the Twins uniforms had NOB. In 1987, the Twins had new uniforms and would win the World Series in their new look. The home jerseys had NNOB while the away grays had NOB. The home jerseys would have NOB in 1997. The Twins’ 2010 look and their recent look have NOB while their 1960s home throwbacks had NNOB. 1977 episode of TWIB Royals – The Royals added NOB to both their home whites and away powder blues in the 1978 season. All their other looks (from the 1985 World Series look to the BFBS 2002-2005 period, to what they wear nowadays) since then have had NOB, aside from their annual Negro League KC Monarchs throwbacks. Yankees – the only team never to have NOB on their uniforms and they’re not gonna start now. (Unless one counts those Players Weekend jerseys that each team dons from the past 2 seasons). It would be blasphemy if they ever do it. Ironic as they and the Indians were the 1st two teams to add numbers on the back of their jerseys in 1929. Red Sox – The BoSox were one of the last teams to adopt NOB, adding them to their road uniforms (which were brand new at the time, replacing the 1979-1989 look) in 1990. The 2009-2013 road jerseys and 2014-current road jerseys the Red Sox wear are also NOB. The iconic regular home jerseys have remained NNOB. Interesting enough, the Red Sox’ batting practice/spring training jersey from 2011 (not sure if they still where them) have NOB. In 2007, the Red Sox wore a home jersey with NOB for the 1st time ever as the team wore green jerseys to honor Red Auerbach, the long-time Boston Celtics coach who died the previous year. Orioles – The Orioles were one of the 1st teams to add NOB to their uniforms. They worn jerseys with NOB as early as the 1966 season (not only the team’s 1st world series title, but also 1st year of the famous cartoon bird logo). All the Orioles looks from the pullover look of the 70s and 80s, the realistic bird look of the 90s and 00s and back to the cartoon bird look of today have had NOB. 1966 World Series (Orioles vs Dodgers) Blue Jays – The Blue Jays were a NNOB team in their 1st 3 seasons. In 1980, NOB were added to both their home and road power blues. Strangely, the NOB were removed from their road jerseys while remaining on their home jerseys the following season and would remain through 1988. Typically, some teams were NNOB at home while being NOB on the road, but the Blue Jays were the opposite. NOB came back on the road jerseys in 1989 when the Blue Jays got new uniforms, ditching the pullovers and powder blue for traditional gray. NOB have remained on Blue Jays uniforms since, from the 1997-2003 look to the hideous BFBS 2004-2011 period to their beautiful current jerseys heavily based on the classic 1989-1996 look. Rays – the Rays uniforms have always had NOB since debuting in 1998. Nothing much more to say. Angels – The Angels first added NOB to their jerseys in the 1978 season. According to the Mothership, the 1979 and 1980 uniforms had NOB. Yet that appears to be incorrect as the Angels had NNOB during those seasons. NOB jerseys would return in 1981 and all the Angels looks since, from the button-down 1989-1992 look, the “Angels in the Outfield” look of 1993-1996, the Disney pajamas look of 1997-2001 to their current look that dates back to 2002, have all had NOB on the jerseys. Angels clinch 1979 AL West Angels vs Orioles 1979 ALCS Angels @ White Sox from 1980 1981 All Star Game in Cleveland Athletics – The A’s had NOB on their jerseys as early as the 1970 season. Not sure exactly when the added them. All their looks from the early 70s dynasty years to the 80s pullover uniforms to the Bash Brothers look of the late 80s/early 90s to what they wear today have all had NOB. Rangers – the Rangers were a NNOB team when they were the 2nd incarnation of the Washington Senators. When the team relocated to the Dallas area in 1972, the uniforms had NOB. All the uniforms the Rangers have worn since, from the Nolan Ryan-era look to the playoff years of the 1990s and what the team wears today, have had NOB on the jerseys. Mariners – Except for the current fauxback uniforms that have been worn since 2015, the Mariners have always had NOB on their uniforms since debuting in 1977. Astros - the Astros added NOB on their jerseys in as early as 1971, when they switched their main color from navy blue to orange. All of the Astros looks since then, from the 1975-1986 rainbow guts to the 1980-1993 rainbow shoulders to the 1994-1999 shooting star look to the 2000-2012 brick red/black pinstripes look to what they wear today, have all had NOB on their jerseys Hoston Astros pitcher at the 1971 All Star Game
  8. Hey guys! Today I'm here with a big project! One that's been in my head for a while and that I've finally started executing. With big help from @Balu the Bare I've been able to start work on a fictional history of american baseball. We start in the year 1885, when the world's first professional baseball leagues were formed. One, the Northeast Baseball League, is located in the New England area. And the other; the United States Baseball League, is located along the Ohio River. The leagues are not connected in anyway. The barely even know of each others existence. There are 5 teams in each league. I will be creating logos and uniforms for each team, while Balu helps simulate and generate ideas. It's simulated using OOTP. Each season is currently 80 games, with the two best teams from each league playing each other in their leagues championship. Here are the league logos: The teams will be uploaded soon! C&C appreciated, hope you stay tuned! Current teams:
  9. https://mlbraleigh.com/ Thoughts? I really like the "R" logo.
  10. (Bear with me, there is a concept here) I’ve been speculating that, since the Brewers have been ramping up their use of the navy/athletic gold Ball in Glove logo, they might be testing the waters for a change in 2020 or beyond. Now, that itself is not really a subject for this particular board, but it spawned something that I think it is. As much as I could get behind the BiG back to stay, I don’t like the blah navy color. It’s dark and drab, especially under the very heavy Miller Park roof. I’d like to see the Brewers adopt a slightly tweaked version of the darker cap, with a dark royal that’s brighter than navy but darker than the light navy of the throwbacks. Click to embiggen: Here it is in context, with the current alternate caps: The color is inspired by the first Brewers’ color scheme, used from 1970 through 77. Thanks to @TruColor for the details: Check out this game-worn Hank Aaron cap: That’s what I’m thinking about. Dark enough that they can still sell navy merchandise. Dark enough to stand separate from the throwback gear, so the Brewers can still sell all the throwback merch they want. But still bolder, more vibrant, more blue than the boring navy. So whaddya think?
  11. The deal between Nike and the Majors inspired this idea. For those who don't know it, Umbro is an UK-based soccer brand. It's one of my favourite sport brands, which reached their peak during the 70's, 80's and 90's, and now, after being bought and sold by Nike, they've been releasing great stuff for teams like Everton, Bournemouth, and many more. I think they've managed to create an unique look thanks to the use of their distinctive logo. That's why I've been thinking about creating a series re-imagining the MLB uniforms made by this brand. But since I'm not sure about it, here's an example of how it'd look like: Every team would have two main uniforms, up to two alts and one retro design. What do you think? Feedback appreciated!
  12. I am personally fascinated by what's going on in Minor League Baseball right now, and the majority of that is due to Brandiose's reign of two-word nickname, food logo, baby cake of terror, which to be honest hasn't been all bad imo. There are things happening down in the MiLB that wouldn't have been dreamed of 20 or so years ago, and its like watching a blowout: Painful, but fun to watch it go down. So i got to thinking, with news of Brandiose sinking its toes into the minor league hockey pool, how long is it before they get their hands on the major leagues? Now if (when) in eventuality they do, they won't come at it with a Jumbo Shrimp ideal, but for fun, I'd like to think of what would happen if they did. So I'll be taking a TBD select number of teams from the MLB and making them look like they belong in the International League, starting with the Oakland Swingin' A's (Athletics).
  13. The Minnesota Twins unveiled a new uniform to replace the creams and no one likes it. gold
  14. Well, I guess there's no better way to celebrate post #1600 than by launching my newest concept thread! Welcome to MLB: Project 32! After posting in my tweaks thread for about two years (where I'll keep posting little one-offs), I figured I should reorganize all of my concepts with new presentations, template tweaks (mostly altering sleeve and trouser displays), and other refinements. I will try to have regular updates, as long as my schedule allows it. Above are the preliminary colors for each team, along with new divisional alignments! There are no more Centrals, but rather two divisions of eight. The Astros and Diamondbacks have swapped spots (making the 1998 expansion an AL expansion, parallel to the 1993 NL expansion), while one team has been added to each league. The top two teams in each division make the playoffs (seeded 1-4 regardless of division) and the first round grows to seven games (because no Wild Card game and "death to small sample size randomness"). This series will feature two parts per team. One part will be the main concept, the one I'm most happy with presenting. The other will be an alternate take. These will explore past identities, shirk off brand equity, and present interesting fusions. I hope to you take you guys on a wild ride, so let's get started! TEAMS American League East Baltimore Orioles (Modern St. Louis Browns) Boston Red Sox (Forest Green + Red Sox) Carolina Pilots (Modern Seattle Pilots) Cleveland Indians (Cleveland Guardians) (Navy-Centric) (Guardians Update and Recolor) Detroit Tigers (Bengal-ized Tigers) New York Yankees (Dugout Script + Red Accent Yankees) Tampa Bay Stingrays (Tampa Bay Rays "of Light") Toronto Blue Jays (Salvaging the Black Jays) AL East Updates/AL West Teaser Dugout Jackets (Alternate Takes) American League West Anaheim Angels (Navy/Red Revival) Arizona Diamondbacks (Phoenix Snakes) (Snakes Update) Chicago White Sox (Greyscale goodness) Kansas City Royals (Royal Blue + Metallic Gold) (Minor Tweaks) Minnesota Twins (Forest Green + Light Blue and "Twin Cities") (New Road Alternate) Oakland Athletics (Oakland Oaks) Seattle Mariners (Royal/Yellow and Pt.

  15. Hi everyone, This is a series I've been wanting to start since last August. When Major League Baseball unveiled their Players Weekend jerseys and caps, the reaction was decidedly mixed. Some uniforms turned out pretty great, while others didn't make much sense. Many were put off by the use of bright neon colors that looked mismatched with the rest of some traditional teams' uniforms. Recently, I decided to try my hand at "fixing" these jerseys. Here are the rules I laid down for myself: - Stay faithful to each team's actual color palette, but use older team colors for diversity's sake - Caps with contrasting crowns and bills are allowed - Use the same block number style to unify the designs - Every team gets its name (not state/city) on their jersey Some teams will be vastly different, while others will only be slightly tweaked, but every team will be changed at least somewhat. Many thanks to @Carolingian Steamroller and @Victormrey for helping me out with this project. Let's start off with one of the more dramatically changed teams, the Arizona Diamondbacks: For the D-Backs, I decided to embrace the bright color aesthetic and go with a combination of their classic purple and their new, brighter teal/turquoise. I also paired the jersey with their throwback pinstriped pants. C&C appreciated! The Braves are up next.
  16. Https://t.co/fz1RNTtiWO The old school logo on the grey and blue raglan. Does anyone have that graphic? I love way it looks but can't find it anywheere. Hope this is right spot to post. Thanks in advance.

  18. Hello all, I've been working the past few weeks on a new template for baseball uniforms in Photoshop. It was a painstaking effort to get everything on there but hopefully I've covered everything. I'd really like to thank @raysox for the inspiration from his Soccer and NuSoccer templates - I love the flat looks with thick outlines. I also want to thank @dsaline97 for critiquing the final product with Snapchat sketches. Here's some of the highlights: Traditional and "Taco Bell" style hats Traditional, Paneled, and "Taco Bell" helmets Gloss and Matte finishes Smart Object layers for helmet and hat logos Four Jersey Styles: Pullover (with round, v-neck, and one-button collar styles) Button down w/ undershirt Button down w/o undershirt Button down vest Each jersey style has raglan and traditional sleeves and pinstripes Three jersey piping options for placket, sleeves, and neck: One color (most teams) Two color (Nationals) Two color (Braves) Two pants styles Elastic waist (70s - 80s) Belted waist (traditional) Each pants style has pinstripe and pocket flap options Three pants piping options for outseam and belt loops Separate stirrup and sanitary sock layers Everything should be layered and grouped logically. Here's the deal - I only have Photoshop, so please don't ask me "When will this be available for Paint, Illustrator, Inkscape, etc.?" because I won't doing that. However, if you think there is a critical piece missing from the template, please let me know and I'll see if it's worth adding. Please have fun with this and feel free to show of your concepts! TL;DR - Here's the link: Media Fire Link Bonus: If you can tell me individual and team referenced in the picture above, I'll give you a high five.
  19. Well, after like 3 years of not posting anything on here due to starting college back in the day and other factors of life, I'm glad to be back. Back in 2015, I attempted to make an MLB redesign topic that was pretty below-average. Now I believe I have a solid template and a better understanding of the history of the MLB, so I'm gonna get back at it again, and do it right. So first off, lets realign the MLB again: NL East: Atlanta Braves Miami Marlins New York Mets Washington Nationals NL North: Cincinnati Reds Montréal Expos Philadelphia Phillies Pittsburgh Pirates NL Central: Chicago Cubs Colorado Rockies Milwaukee Brewers St. Louis Cardinals NL West: Arizona Diamondbacks Los Angeles Dodgers San Diego Padres San Francisco Giants AL East: Baltimore Orioles Boston Red Sox New York Yankees Tampa Bay Rays AL North: Detroit Tigers Cleveland Indians Minnesota Twins Toronto Blue Jays AL Central: Chicago White Sox Houston Astros Kansas City Royals Texas Rangers AL West: Los Angeles Angels Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Portland Pioneers Sweet and simple 32 team realignment. I hope you guys like what I've got in store concept-wise.
  20. Every now and then, there are dead identities that I never got around to before a rename. While the OKC Dodgers actually wound up with a good look, I preferred the Redhawks' logos. The home and away aren't really anything groundbreaking, aside from a little something I borrowed from the Oklahoma state flag, the thick, small crosses representing stars, a nod to the many natives there. The alts...the same design as the mains, the red one has the redhawk on the chest, the tan uniform has a big OK on the front, with CITY on the K in small letters. The red cap paired with it also has the OKC monogram given a different treatment.
  21. I recently had an idea for an alternate Braves road uniform. It falls more in line the Atlanta's ivory home alternate throwback. I think it's got the classic, simple aesthetic with the more modern "ATL" moniker.
  22. Hello! I’ve always been a huge fan of sports branding and history, but I’ve never actually taken to creating my own logos/jerseys until now. I figured this would be the best place to post my first attempts at creating teams because you all seem to give useful feedback, even if it isn’t always exactly what the artist want to hear. For this project I’ve created 8 team leagues for baseball, american football, basketball, and hockey, and I've decided to use my own templates. The templates are pretty basic but I’m proud of them. Any recommendations for upgrading the templates would be greatly appreciated as well. I should also mention that for the time being I am using a program called Vectr. First up will be the Stars and Stripes Baseball League. Each team will have a home, away, and alternate uniform. The 8 teams will be in these markets: New York Los Angeles Chicago Houston Phoenix Philadelphia San Antonio San Diego The first team posted is the New York Honeycrisps, which is based on the “Big Apple” nickname for New York. I know cliches aren’t always the best way to go, but I couldn’t keep myself from trying to create an apple holding a bat. Anyways, I’d really appreciate your feedback on what areas I could improve in. Thanks for reading!
  23. Ooooops, don’t know why the text didn’t come through. Went to a Portland Diamond Project event today where six local designers presented concepts for a potential Portland MLB Franchise. Logos, hats, and uniforms. Great, creative concepts by everyone. Team Names - Portland Swifts - Portland Buds - Portland Pines - Portland Steelheads - Portland River Rats - Portland Californians, lol Pictures below:

    MLB by NIKE

    With my college hockey season winding down, I find that I once again have time to post stuff on here again. I've started a bunch of projects, but haven't had the time to get them on here until now. I've got a super massive project coming soon, but I wanted to get this one up and going before I consider starting that one. Enough with that though, lets dive in. I am aware Under Armour will be getting the MLB in 2019, replacing Majestic and Nike, but I really haven't done a baseball redesign series to date (i'm not considering my Pinstriping the MLB a "redesign series"). So I thought I'd give it a go. Now traditionalists be warned. This won't be a run of the mill white/grey/color uniform set for each team. Some teams will stay traditional in that sense, others will be a little off the board. Expect some colored pants. Sleeve stripes will be bigger for most, if not all teams. Traditions will be upheld for some. But that is enough my talking, I'll let the concepts do that instead. I'm going in alphabetical order of teams, starting in the AL. I don't really have a lot of complaints with the current state of Baltimore's uniforms. Hence why there isn't a whole lot changed. I did scrap the grey uniforms in this case. -Hats/Batting Helmets - I really really really am a sucker for white panel hats. However I am not a huge fan of the cartoon oriole on the front of the hat so I changed it to the O's logo. Black hat stays pretty much the same. But on the batting helmets I used the cartoon oriole. The O's logo just didn't look right on it. BP hat is orange with the cartoon on it, and it could be snuck into the rotation of hats. -Jerseys - Again, not much is different from what is currently used. Orange jersey becomes the new road jersey, and now has the Baltimore script on the chest. Black jersey gains some white detailing and is the new alternate. BP jersey I will have fun with for all the teams. Most teams will have a logo instead of script on them and will have more modern striping. In this case, two BP jerseys for the Orioles, both have the cartoon Oriole and truncated racing stripes. Also, just to be more modern, I added a chest number. -Pants - White pants only for the Orioles. I knocked around the idea of orange or black pants but found it didn't suit the look. Plus I didn't think they'd want to look like oranges running across the field since they've tried that before. C&C welcome as always!
