Here are my American League concepts for this year. If you haven't seen the National League concepts yet be sure to go back and check 'em out. As with the NL concepts, I have essentially taken the current jerseys that the teams have now and made certain re-designs or adjustments that I think should be made. The template is the Wikipedia template, because I find that despite how flat that template is, it's the easiest to work with and re-color. The only thing I don't like is that there are no back views of the jerseys, but I may still redo all of these on a better template eventually. Each team is presented with the home and road jerseys, or any alternates and throwbacks worn in separate locations shown in both home and road formats. If a jersey is worn both at home and on the road it simply just has the pants split in color with the home white represented on the left side and the road grey on the right. Also in some cases where undershirts or stirrups are different colors at home or on the road, they are shown in those colors on the same sides too. In a few cases where a team wears an alternate hat in both places, the hat is placed in the middle of the two regular jerseys. As for the BP jerseys, they are only shown in the split format, as I feel that there is no need to wear different BP jerseys at home or on the road. Also, the design of the BP's is the pullover design from 2007-10, with the team's main color making up the body of the jersey and their secondary color under the armpits and down the sides. The reason for this is that I feel it is just a much simpler and better looking design than the crazy ones they have now. For the BP jersey logos, I have just the team's hat logo on the left breast, very reminiscent of the 80's and 90's BP jersey styles. The BP hats however are based off of the current design, and all are made to be a two-tone look with the bills being a different color than the crown. The descriptions for each team, in alphabetical order are as follows. The pictures of the jerseys are after that. Baltimore Orioles: The O's have a good clean, traditional looking design that hasn't changed that much over the years, but one that I felt was in need of some adjustments. First off, I've never been a fan of the cartoon bird hat logo. It just looks too childish and minor league to me. So I've replaced it with the more atomically correct bird logo. The overall home, road, and alternate jerseys are exactly the same otherwise. I've added a black road alternate jersey and included the early 80's jersey as a throwback, along with the mid 90's style as well. For BP, I simply used the "O's" logo on both the jersey and hat. Boston Red Sox: The Red Sox jerseys for the most part can't get anymore classic and traditional looking if they tried, yet the choice of color is what seems to make these jerseys work. Again starting with the hats, I've never understood why a team called he RED Sox wears BLUE hats, so I've replaced them with a more appropriate solid red hat with a blue "B" logo. The stirrups are instead solid red socks and the hanging socks logo that appears on the road jersey sleeve is also on the home jersey. The red piping from the home jersey had been added to the road jersey, and the shoes are also red as well. For a throwback, I used the mid 70's pullover jerseys and for BP I made it red with the blue "B" logo. I did use a blue hat for BP, however I made the bill red to keep the standard two-tone look of the hats. Chicago White Sox: The White Sox have another fairly traditional looking jersey that has remained pretty much the same over the past couple of decades. There wasn't much to do here except make the black socks that they wear for whatever strange reason white. (Again, another team that seems to be color blind.) The white sock logo in the black diamond that appears on the road and alternate jerseys has been added to the home jersey, and the throwback is pretty much the same mid 80's design that they wear now, however it has the more appropriate and authentic beltless, elastic waistband pants. The BP jersey is also pretty much the same but with silver side coloring and a silver bill to the hat. Cleveland Indians: The Indians I've always thought have a great design that looks primarily traditional and yet a little bit modern. The home jersey I feel was way better back in the 90's with red piping, so I've returned that to it. The current road jerseys with the arched block lettering is a very classic look as well, but I've added blue piping to it to match the style of the home jersey. I've always been a supporter of the Chief Wahoo logo and find no reason to replace it, yet I also like the block letter "C" logo that they returned to a few years back and I think both logos work well, so I've left the home and road hats the same. The alternate home jersey is pretty much the same but has the white piping returned to it, and I've made an alternate version of the road jersey to match. For throwbacks I used the red mid 70's jersey as I've always loved the color and lettering of that design, and the late 80's "Major League" era jersey as well. For BP, I've returned Chief Wahoo to the front to resemble the BP jerseys worn in the late 80's and made a more early 80's style look to the hat. (Remember that the splits in colors of the BP jersey is to resemble the jersey being worn both at home and on the road.) Detroit Tigers: There was absolutely nothing I felt that needed to be done to the Tigers due to how their jerseys have practically not changed at all in the course of their history, at least at home. While they may have a new "D" logo, I don't particularly care for it, so I left the old logo on the home jersey. The road jersey is 100% the same, while the BP jersey has the white "D" logo with orange sides. Houston Astros: The Astros are a team like the Padres who have gone through many different looks and styles in their history, which leaves a lot to choose from if you're basing them off the past. Being the traditionalist that I am, I love how the Stros returned to their original style design from the 60's. The home and road jerseys are exactly the same, however I've designated the orange alternate hats for regular home use and the solid blue hats for the road. An orange alternate jersey that I created actually a year before the ones they have now is for home games, while a matching blue alternate is for the road. Who can't love the wild and crazy "Tequila Sunrise" jerseys from the 70's as a throwback, and the late 90's horizontal lettering jerseys are also included, as I've always been a fan of those short lived jerseys. The BP jersey is exactly the same but I've replaced the hat with the two-tone style that they currently wear on the road. Kansas City Royals: The Royals have managed to keep a pretty traditional look going by changing very little, yet have managed to mix it up style-wise in colors and logos over the eras. Nothing needed to be done to the home and road jerseys, and the blue alternates are made to match. I've never like the use of powder blue in the Royals modern say color scheme, yet I think it's perfectly fine for back in the day so I included the mid 80's jerseys as throwbacks. The BP jersey however does utilize the powder blue in a subtle way with it on the sides hat bill. Los Angeles Angels: The Angels have had some interesting choices for colors and logos to their jerseys throughout their history, and with the exception of the horrible late 90's Disney era jerseys, I've liked them all. That being said, the modern versions are pretty much OK but like many other current threads I felt needed some slight adjustments. The home jerseys are pretty much the same but the road jerseys are themed in blue in order to utilize both the red and blue eras in Angels jersey history. The red home alternate jersey has been adjusted with blue lettering and numbers as opposed to red in order to provide a better visible contrast. A blue road alternate has been added to match, and the throwback jersey is from the late 70'/early 80's era. BP is red with the "A" logo and has the appropriate matching undershirts, belts, stirrups and shoes for home and road use. Minnesota Twins: The Twins have managed to keep a pretty good and classic look throughout their history, yet I really don't care for the versions they have now. The lack of pinstripes and gold trim on the current jerseys just doesn't appeal to me, so I've gone back to the previous pinstripe version hat home. The "TC" logo is on the home hats and the "M" logo is on the road, with both hats being solid blue. The matching blue alternates are pretty much the same, as well as the 60's throwback. Also I've added an early 80's throwback and made the BP jersey blue with the "M" logo and a two tone red and blue hat similar to the current road hat. New York Yankees: I have left out the Yankees, as I feel they have absolutely nothing at all that needs to be done to their 100% traditional and classic look. (That and the fact that the Wikipedia template was different for them for some reason and I couldn't get it to work the same way as all the rest. Oakland Athletics: The A's have had another plethora of styles and colors combinations to choose from, yet have managed to make their jerseys appear traditional and classic looking as well. The home and road jerseys are exactly the same, however the road hat is the same as the two-tone green and yellow home hat, as I just don't think the solid green looks as good. The alternate, throwback style jerseys they wear now are a great look, and I've added a white home version with green "A" logo. For a throwback I've included the early 70's era style jersey, a natural selection I think as far as the A's glory days go. The BP jersey is green with a yellow "A" logo, and has a white crowned hat with green bill that resembles the same type of hat from certain periods in the A's past. Finally, I've never understood why the A's have always worn white shoes, as I just don't think it's a good look, so I've made the shoes more a color appropriate green. Seattle Mariners: The Mariners current jerseys are another good looking set that appears much better than some previous designs and color choices they've had in the past. Home and road are exactly the same, and I've added a two-tone teal and blue hat to go along with the alternate teal jersey. A blue alternate road jersey has been added and the blue and yellow throwback style jersey is exactly the same. For BP it is blue with the "S" logo and the hat also has the "S" logo, as I've just never been a fan of the compass logo. Tampa Bay Rays: The Rays current design is way better in my opinion than the old Devil Rays design, and the only real changes I felt needed to be done is adjusting the color of the lettering on the blue alternate jerseys to a better contrasting powder blue. For BP, the "TB" logo is on both the jersey and hat, as I've never really liked the sunray logo by itself. Texas Rangers: The Rangers I felt have had a great design for a while now, however have made some unnecessary changes in the recent past. Why they decided to put "Texas" on both the road and home jerseys just doesn't make sense, as I'm a firm believer that while all teams don't have to have their city or state name on the rod, ALL home jerseys should have the team name on them. That being said, I returned the "Rangers" lettering to the home jerseys and recolored the theme red, as well as adding matching piping to both the home and road jerseys. A red alternate home jerseys has been added as well, and the late 70's and mid 80's jerseys make up the throwbacks. For BP, the "T" logo with the Texas flag is on the jersey, and the undershirts, belts, stirrups and shoes match accordingly at home or on the road. Toronto Blue Jays: I love how he Jays went back to their early 90's style jerseys a few years ago and I think there was absolutely nothing that needed to be done to them now, other than making the white paneled alternate hat the full time home hat and adding a blue alternate road jersey. Also the original early 80's jerseys are used as throwbacks and the BP jersey has the Blue Jay logo on it and the hat, as the maple leaf on the hat just doesn't make sense to me. I know they're from Canada, but having it as a hat logo and no other sign of a blue jay is very nondescript. That's all for the American League. Again, I invite your comments, suggestions, and constructive criticism. Thanks for reading and I hope everyone enjoys my concepts of both leagues.
Hey concept addicts! Welcome to a new baseball season! Last year I did a set of jersey concepts for each MLB team and what I thought should be the best re-design or adjustments that should be made to each one. Some of you liked them and I had a great time making them, so I've gone back and done some more designs and made a few tweaks to the ones I already had, as well as adding many different throwbacks. The template is still the Wikipedia template, but I find that as flat as that template is, it's the easiest to work with and re-color. The only thing I don't like is that there are no back views of the jerseys, but I may still redo all of these on a better template eventually. Each team is presented with the home and road jerseys, or any alternates and throwbacks worn in separate locations shown in both home and road formats. If a jersey is worn both at home and on the road it simply just has the pants split in color with the home white represented on the left side and the road grey on the right. Also in some cases where undershirts or stirrups are different colors at home or on the road, they are shown in those colors on the same sides too. In a few cases where a team wears an alternate hat in both places, the hat is placed in the middle of the two regular jerseys. As for the BP jerseys, they are only shown in the split format, as I feel that there is no need to wear different BP jerseys at home or on the road. Also, the design of the BP's is the pullover design from 2007-10, with the team's main color making up the body of the jersey and their secondary color under the armpits and down the sides. The reason for this is that I feel it is just a much simpler and better looking design than the crazy ones they have now. For the BP jersey logos, I have just the team's hat logo on the left breast, very reminiscent of the 80's and 90's BP jersey styles. The BP hats however are based off of the current design, and all are made to be a two-tone look with the bills being a different color than the crown. Anyway, here's my concept descriptions for each team in alphabetical order, followed by the pictures of the jerseys: Arizona Diamond Backs: I have no idea what Arizona was thinking coming out with the new designs that they have now. In my opinion, they're way too wild, have way too much going on, and just don't look very MLB-like. If you ask me, I think they look more like a college team's jersey. That being said, I kept the D-backs in the design and format of their previous jerseys, but also based it heavily off of their early 2000's design. The home jersey is like that design with just the "A" on the left breast and the hat with the snake "D" logo. The road jersey is pretty much identical to the previous one, but with the new "Arizona" script on it, which is the one thing I do like about the new jerseys. The alternates are also basically the same type that they previously had, but with the "A" again replacing "D-backs" on the red ones, and only red undershirts and stirrups with both. The throwback is the iconic purple pinstripes design from the early 00's and the BP jersey has the snake "D" as the logo. Overall, I like Arizona's colors from both era's, but I don't think that the two should have ever been combined. Atlanta Braves: The Braves are one of those teams that have had some of the most traditional and time tested jerseys in the game, and in my opinion there was absolutely nothing that needed to be done with the regular home and roads, except keep the blue hat with red bill on both, as I just don't like the all blue hat. I really don't like the current alternates either, as I don't feel that they have the same traditional look as the regular home and road jerseys, so I made a pair that mimic the other two more closely. The home alternate is a brighter shade of red with white script lettering and piping, as well as a matching red hat with blue bill and white "A" logo to match the jersey script. The road alternate is the same shade of blue as the regular team hats, with white script lettering that I think makes for a much better contrast than blue on blue. The jersey also has a matching all blue hat with adjusted "A" logo to match the jersey script. For the throwbacks, I can't help but love the early 70's Hank Aaron era design with feathers on the sleeves and white front panel hats, so I included both versions for at home and the road. The BP jersey has the alternate version of the "A" logo with the tomahawk attached to it. Chicago Cubs: Oh, what can I say about my hated rival Cubs. Simply that their jerseys like the Cards, are also very traditional and classic looking, and really needed nothing to be changed on either the home or road jerseys. The alternate jersey is pretty much the same too, minus the National League logo on the right sleeve, which I think is totally unnecessary. I couldn't really think of a decent throwback to use, as the Cubs design really hasn't been all that much different for the most part in each era. For a BP jersey I made it with the regular red hat "C" logo. Cincinnati Reds: Another team that has had a lot of crazy designs over the years but has toned it down and become way more traditional in the recent past is the Reds. Not much to really be done here. The home, road, and alternate jerseys are exactly the same, except I replaced the black shoes with red and gave all three jerseys solid red hats, as I feel that black just does not look good on a team whose name is the "Reds." The throwback jersey is the iconic "Big Red Machine" jersey of the 70's. (This one does have black shoes however to make it fully authentic.) The BP jersey has the same white version of the team logo as the alternate jersey. The BP hat has a white crown with a red bill, a sort of throwback design based off of the white crowned hats that the Reds wore at different times in their history. Colorado Rockies: The Rockies have another great traditional look that I felt needed no adjustment at home or on the road. The alternates however are a little different. Being one of the only teams to feature purple as a primary color, I gave the Rocks a solid purple alternate jersey to be worn at home, along with a matching purple hat with black bill. The road alternate is pretty much the same as the black alternates they wear now. I dropped the vest jersey because I just can't stand the vest look in the MLB, as I feel its another design that should be left in college or little league. Not really any place for a throwback here either, as Colorado has had pretty much the same design throughout their short history. The BP jersey has the interlocking "CR" hat logo on it. Miami Marlins: In my opinion, the Marlins had one of the best and classic looking designs in the league prior to their 2012 rebranding. Why they decided to ditch the teal and more atomically correct fish for orange and stylized fish design I'll never understand. However, it's not like their current design wasn't entirely re-workable. For the home jersey, I took the "Marlins" script from the alternate orange jerseys and made the lettering black. (It makes way more sense to have the team name at home and it's city name on the road.) The road and black alternate jerseys are both the same, however I designated the orange for home and the black for the road. I really like the rarely seen orange alternate hats so I've included them for use both at home and on the road. The BP jersey has the same "M" hat logo. Los Angeles Dodgers: Along with the Yankees, Cards, and Red Sox, the Dodgers look is as traditionally classic and iconic as you can get. I just think they've done a little too much with it in recent years. Mainly the use of the "LA" logo on the left sleeve, which I think is just excessive to have it on both the hat and sleeve, so I removed it. I also added a blue alternate jersey to be worn at home, and kept the throwback style road jersey with blue sleeve stripes. The BP jersey has the same "LA" hat logo. Milwaukee Brewers: The Brewers have managed to stick with a fairly conservative and traditional look for the past several years. Nothing I felt needed to be done with the regular home and road or alternate blue jerseys. I love the new inclusion of the retro "ball and glove" logo on the alternate hats so I've kept that, as well as put the same logo on the BP jersey. The pair of throwback jerseys are from the early 80's, which I think is the best looking era from the Brewers past. New York Mets: The Mets are yet another team with a great traditional and classic look, especially now that they've dropped black from their color scheme. For the most part, there really was nothing at all that I felt needed to be done with any of the regular home and road or alternate jerseys, so I left them exactly the same. All I did was add a pair of mid 80's throwbacks, an era that I think best represents the Mets past. The BP jersey has the regular "NY" hat logo on it. Philadelphia Phillies: Again, the Phillies are way too traditional and classic looking to need to have anything done with them, however I did add an alternate red jersey based off of this year's spring training jersey, but with white lettering to make it show up better. The 70's/80's throwbacks are I think the best remembered era of the Phils history, and the BP jersey has the simple "P" hat logo. Pittsburgh Pirates: Same deal with the Pirates. Not much needed to be done here aside from adding a yellow alternate jersey and hat to go along with the current black one, and while I like the new late 70's throwback jersey the Pirates have decided to use this year, I've replaced it with the pinstripe version from that era in order to make it look different from the alternate jersey and kept the early 70's version. The BP jersey is pretty much the same as what is worn by the team now. San Diego Padres: The Padres are perhaps the one team in MLB that have had somewhat of an identity crisis over the course of their history. Having so many different looks and eras to choose from, I decide to go with a hybrid of types by taking the new lettering from the current style jerseys and coloring them in the original brown and yellow scheme. The home jersey has the new "Padres" script, as I just don't think the "SD" logo works as well. The road jerseys have the same "San Diego" lettering, and the brown alternate jerseys are pretty much the same design as the current blue ones. I've kept the yellow front paneled throwback style hat as an alternate and added two yellow stripes to the stirrups. For throwbacks, I included the short lived mid 70's design which I always thought had a great script to it, as well as both of the jerseys worn by the team in the early 80's. The BP jerseys have the same "SD" hat logo as the one alternate. San Francisco Giants: The Giants have another traditionally classic look that works fine as it is, but also have some great designs from their past that still work as well. Keeping the regular home and road jerseys the same, I adjusted the black alternate jersey by changing the color in the lettering and piping to white for a better visual contrast. The sleeve stripes on both alternates have been adjusted slightly for a better matching order as well, and I also added a white version of the alternates. The road "SF" alternate I think works just fine as it is, and the BP jersey has the regular "SF" hat logo on it. Since the alternate jerseys so closely resemble the jerseys from the late 70's/early 80's I felt that there was no need for a throwback. St. Louis Cardinals: For my hometown Cardinals, I felt that with the same traditional, classic and iconic look like so many other teams, there was nothing that needed to be done on the outset, but there were a few adjustments that I felt needed to be made. The first addition is red stripes on the pants, similar to the Cards jerseys from the 60's, and also the same stripes added to the sleeves. The road jersey has the "St. Louis" script lettering from the current Saturday alternates on it, while those jerseys have had the lettering replaced with just the redbird logo on the left breast, very similar to the jerseys worn by the team in the late 20's. I also made an identical red version of the alternate for use both at home and on the road. For throwbacks, I picked what I thought were the three most iconic looking eras of past Cardinals jerseys, the 40's and 80's, and the BP jersey has the white "STL" hat logo. Washington Nationals: The Nationals have a look that I feel is traditional, but I just don't like the cursive "W", as I think it looks too much like the Walgreen's "W" logo. That being the case, I have taken the rarely seen "Nationals" script lettering and put it on the home jerseys, while replacing the "W" on all hats with the also seldom seen "DC" logo and made them solid red. For alternates, I made a blue patriotic home jersey with the stars and stripes "DC" logo, as well as a blue, red billed hat with the same logo. A red road alternate has the "Washington" script logo on it and the BP jersey has the white "DC" hat logo. Well, that's it for the National League. I invite your comments, suggestions, and constructive criticism. I will post the American League in a few days. Thanks for reading and I hope everyone enjoys these!
Hey everyone, This is my first submission of any type of concept, so bear with me as I learn the ropes and look to hopefully get better at this. As a St. Louisan, naturally my favorite sport is baseball, so I thought I would start off with the current MLB uniforms and modify them in places where I felt that they needed adjustment. Using the Wikipedia baseball jersey template, I tried to keep all the jerseys as close to the way they look as possible and if anything enhance them or remove elements that I felt weren't necessary or I just didn't like. Also I included BP jerseys with each of the uniform sets, as well as a few throwback uni's. As an added touch, I've given all the teams traditional style stirrup socks and I've cleaned up the colors on the shoes a little bit too. I will be starting off with the National League and will submit each team one at a time alphabetically. I appreciate your compliments and I'm open to any advice or constructive criticism. Please note that I'm entitled to my opinions as you are to yours, so please don't take offense at any of my thoughts or reasons for doing work on a particular team's jersey. That's just what I think and you don't have to agree with it. Anyway, here goes nothin'.Arizona DiamondbacksFirst off let me say that I never have liked the "D-backs" lettering on the current Arizona home jerseys. To me it just doesn't look like an MLB jersey. However I've always loved the southwestern style "A" made to look like a snake head. Taking that logo and basing the jerseys off the design of the 90's D-backs jerseys, I made a modern version of them with just the "A" logo at home and on the alternate red jersey. The road jersey is pretty much left unchanged, as well as the black alternate and the BP jersey is basically the same as the red alternate, just without the sleeve cuff stripes and a two-tone colored hat. I'll post the next one in a couple days. First I'd like to see how much feedback I get from this one. Thanks everybody and have a great day!
