MLB Changes 2015

Recommended Posts

Especially since the A's cheaped out and now wear the home batting helmets for all games. It's bad when we see the crappy road cap in the field but then see how much better the A's could look minutes later when they're at the plate.

I hated when the Twins did this with the TC helmets at bat and M hats in the field. Of course the Twins would be cheap.

From a picture that Phil Hecken had tweeted, the American League caps are in the teams' colors while the National League caps are white.

Hmm. Not according to this.

Looks like the new MLB ASG hats are out! They're awesome!

My reaction when I saw the cap for the Tigers:

New Era can't even properly manufacture a pillbox hat anymore. That's the point we've reached.

Maybe the white crown version is for the Home Run Derby. IIRC, last year they had two different caps one for the Derby and one for the game.

I'm starting to really warm up to the idea of host team inspired all star hats. I liked last years, but I LOVE this years

Could also just be merchandising - sell 'em in white and team colors.

The Brewers one reminds me of this beauty from 1905:

I'm not impressed. Cleveland and Houston are terribly done. They should've had white stripes or logo. Yankees navy looks poor too

Since the Padres are hosting the ASG next year, and as we can tell from the past 2 that they are going back in time to make new hats, what possibilities do you think they'll come up with for next year?

I'm not sure about caps, but perhaps yellow jerseys for the NL and brow jerseys for the AL?

The ONLY reason I ever watch ANY part of a MLB All-Star game is to see players wearing Cincinnati Reds uniforms in the game. If they take that away, I'll probably never watch another pitch.

The only caps with any pop to them in my opinion are Oakland and Toronto. And why is Pittsburgh's so :censored:ty? We had two kinds of pillboxes from 1977-1986 and non are represented in this garbage.

They could take each team's normal cap and swap out the colors so it has a white logo on a navy base. That would really pay tribute to what the Padres have accomplished in going from what was once a great color scheme (brown and gold) to the most bland, boring set of uniforms in the game.

People like those? It's like they want to mimic the pillbox style, but on a 6-panel cap. I don't see any way that horizontal stripes look good on a dome. I thought New Era was going to make actual pillbox caps for this game - guess not.

I don't want to start a new topic, so this is only vaguely related. But can anyone direct me to a site that sells those say no to drugs wristbands? I remember there being a website but I can't find it. Thanks.
