MLB Jersey Rotation Project

Recommended Posts

Hello, fine folks of CCSLC!

This morning I woke up and thought I would do a project that showcases the jersey rotations for all 30 MLB teams. Some teams wear their alternate jerseys on a certain day, or it's entirely up to their starting pitchers, or they're simply worn on a selected date. So using the great website of Uniform Lineup and tweeting at a few teams asking for confirmation, I was able to put together a list.

I'm hoping that this project could become a little bigger and once it's all done, I could send it off to Chris on the mothership and maybe he could do a feature on it or something. Or maybe get this thread pinned. Who knows? I just know that this would be a great resource if anybody wants to know when certain jerseys are worn.

Now, I must say that this isn't a complete list. One of the reasons why I'm posting it here is to ask for your help!! I just need some confirmations on a few teams, and maybe some missing information or corrections. I tried my best to get them all right, but it's quite tought to do so. I've placed a question mark in places where I'm unsure of. Others I am sure of, I could be wrong. Maybe help me with the wordings/naming of the jerseys. The hierarchy of the jerseys (as in which one is worn more than the others). Just please help me polish up this list.

So I just need a fresh set of eyes to take a look at what I'm doing!

EDIT: by the way, I'm using 2015's system for all teams. Maybe once this project is done, we could post it somewhere and have it be updated yearly when the teams do something new.

Thanks!!

Although, the Astros did mix it up last night, going with the orange for a nighttime road game to break the losing streak (it worked).

Thanks! And yeah, I understand that teams can mix it up every once in a while, like you mentioned of the Astros. I'm just trying to make a guideline that uses their most common system.

Miami Marlins at home M-F night games wear the home whites with black caps. Saturday night home games wear the black jersey and Sunday home games as they are always day games wear the red-orange jersey.

For the rare weekday home day game, for example a 1pm Thursday afternoon game, they'll either wear the home whites because it's a weekday or the red-orange because its a day game. These games are so rare, no more than 3-4 per season, that there's no set schedule and is probably a pitcher preference.

On the road this year they've almost always gone with the road grays , using the black alternates much less. From what I've noticed, the black jersey on the road usually is more of a Friday Saturday weekend thing but that's not set in stone.

They also do not use their red-orange alternate caps or undershirts this year.

Hope that helps.

Great job! One thing is that Houston usually wears their orange hats when at home on Sunday's. They haven't the past couple months though. Anyone know why?

The Mets wore their blue jerseys at home for their first game against the Nationals during the most recent series. I am a Nationals fan, but I have to say the Mets blue uni's looked fantastic.

Sure wish I could figure out when the Dodgers will wear their "Los Angeles" road jerseys over their "Dodgers" road jerseys. I noticed this recent road trip they stuck with the city name.

Indians wear the Navy Blue on Tuesday at home. It's also the default jersey for game 1 of home doubleheaders (at least on weekdays, I can't rmember the last Saturday or Sunday doubleheader at home).
