I have known for months that my next concept series would be a MLB redesign. Major League Baseball is a league that holds on to its tradition more than any other league, so I decided to use this to create designs that combine different eras of the teams' histories. Before I begin, I should set some parameters (that I will try to keep from breaking): All colors, designs, etc. need to have been used by the team.I can combine elements from different logos, etc. to make a new logo. I am not necessarily trying to incorporate every past logo; instead I will try to end up with a concept that will look good while reflecting different eras of the teams' histories. I am not designing "throwback" uniforms. They aren't supposed to look like the jerseys that were worn in the 1940s; these are modern uniforms that incorporate old design elements. For this reason (and personal preference) I am using a template that has loose pants and socks instead of stirrups. I know that many of you aren't big fans of this look, but I want to replicate what MLB players are currently using. I am not necessarily going to create the look that I would want them to wear; there are probably going to be aspects of some uniforms that aren't my favorite, but I will still incorporate them into my design. That being said, I will not intentionally be creating ugly uniforms. I will give myself more freedom on the alternates, but they still must use elements that have been used before.Let me know what you think about the idea. Feel free to give suggestions about ways to improve the concept. A huge thanks to tbdaniel15 for creating the template that I am using. After I had the idea for this ScoffingYayap and (especially) SFGiants58 have done projects that have combined eras for some of the teams. They have done a very good job, and there will be some overlap with what they have done. I decided not to scrap the project just because others have had some of the same ideas I have.

Well, I'm back at it again. After my first thread went belly up due to my inactive posting, I overhauled my concepts. I improved the displays and ideas, creating an MLB that mixes tweaks of current sets, modernizations of classic looks, and some completely new designs. With that said, let's get started on the American League. AMERICAN LEAGUE Baltimore Orioles (this post) Boston Red Sox New York Yankees Tampa Bay Rays (the "Stingrays" original) Toronto Blue Jays Chicago White Sox Cleveland Indians Detroit Tigers Milwaukee Brewers Minnesota Twins Kansas City Royals Los Angeles Angels Oakland Athletics Seattle Mariners Texas Rangers NATIONAL LEAGUE Atlanta Braves Miami Marlins New York Mets Philadelphia Phillies Washington Nationals Chicago Cubs Cincinnati Reds Houston Astros (alternates update) Pittsburgh Pirates St. Louis Cardinals Arizona Diamondbacks (update) Colorado Rockies (update) Los Angeles Dodgers San Diego Padres San Francisco Giants (update) AL East Baltimore Orioles I've tried to merge the O's current look with their 1960's look, namely with the dirtier-looking scripts (I like the unpolished look of the old script logos over the current slick-looking scripts) and the return of the 60's striped socks (both in stirrup and solid form). I also restored the old primary logo, replaced the "O's" logo on the cartoon bird with the block "B" logo from the 60's, and made the 1954 bird a tertiary logo. I also removed the Maryland flag patch (I love the look of the Maryland flag, but it doesn't need to be placed in every Maryland-based team's logos). The alternates have also changed, with the orange alt's scripts receiving a color flip and the black alt's scripts getting white outlines. Home and Road: Alternates: Up next, Boston and New York!
