MLB Organizational tweaks (Los Angeles Dodgers 40 of 90)

Recommended Posts

In this series, I am going to tweak or redesign all 90 teams throughout the MLB, AAA, and AA. For the most part I want to maintain every team's color and identity but may change a few. There are only a few guidlines in this series.

1. Every team will have a white home and grey away with or without alternates

2.Minor league teams will use hand-me-down batting practice uniforms

3. Teams can mix and match hats and jerseys

 

Arizona Diamondbacks   Reno Aces   Jackson Generals
Atlanta Braves   Gwinnett Braves   Mississippi Braves

Baltimore Orioles   Norfolk Tides   Bowie Baysox

Boston Red Sox   Pawtucket Red Sox   Portland Sea Dogs

Chicago Cubs   Iowa Cubs   Tennessee Smokies

Chicago White Sox   Charlotte Knights  Birmingham Barons

Cincinnati Reds   Louisville Bats   Pensacola Blue Wahoos

Cleveland Indians   Columbus Clippers   Akron Rubberducks

Colorado Rockies  Albuquerque Isotopes  Hartford Yard Goats

Detroit Tigers (*BONUS*)(Final)  Toledo Mud Hens  Erie SeaWolves

Houston Astros   Fresno Grizzlies   Corpus Christi Hooks

Kansas City Royals   Omaha Storm Chasers   Northwest Arkansas Naturals

Anaheim Angels   Salt Lake Bees   Mobile BayBears

Los Angeles Dodgers

 

First up is the Arizona Diamondbacks organization. Their new re-brand was a little off target so I kept a single color scheme the sedona red and sand, because in my opinion, it is stronger than their purple, teal, copper, and black. I returned them to a little more traditional uniform using the old snake pattern they used in their purple days. I like their new darker grey but it looks too dark on the field so I lightened it a bit  Snake logo is used on the sleeve. I made my own BP template so it uses the snake d and has contrasting sleeves as you will see throughout this series.

I'll post their AAA affiliate the Reno Aces after comments on the Diamondbacks.

Why is the team name represented only once and its on the BP uniform? You should also put the black hat as options for different unis

What exactly do you mean when you say "team name represented"

I think he's saying that only the BP jersey makes reference to the Diamondbacks, everything else is the "A" logo or Arizona.

IMO D-Backs looks awful and amateurish on a uniform, and the word Diamondbacks clutter the front. The "A" logo and Arizona script are the strongest of the bunch.

Perfect hat variety and Dan O'Mac is right that Diamondbacks isn't represented except on the BP jersey.

I think it's funny that people think the D-Backs wordmark looks bad. Honestly I love it. Plus, it doesn't have to be the wordmark, it can be the 'D' logo that is used on the BP uniform.

I've always loved the "db" snake head logo personally.

This series is very promising. A few notes on your Arizona concept:

- It looks like you used a darker shade of red for the cap than what's on the jerseys.

- Try incorporating some teal from their new rebrand into the look. I think it would tie the whole set together nicely.

- Make the home uniform white rather than cream. Cream evokes "classic," "old school" baseball which the Dbacks are anything but.

And here is the next team the AAA affiliate of the Diamondbacks, the Reno Aces. They have a solid set of logos that has a more classic feel compared to other minor league teams, so I kept their uniforms a little more conservative using full piping with double piping on the sleeves. I kept it to one alternate and added a white panel hat as it looked sharp with their set. The BP uses the Diamondbacks base so I just recolored the logos to match accordingly.

The Aces look great.

For the Dbacks, adding teal might necessitate replacing the sand which is an easy fix.

The solid white home uniform is an improvement, but how about using the "A" logo on the chest in place of "D-BACKS?"

Up next, the Angels AA affiliate the Mobile BayBears. For the home I used a cream color since it is in their color scheme and utilized their swinging bear on the sleeve. I used a plain navy cap with the bear head for all the uniforms just to keep it simple. The away is a little darker to let the colors pop, and the alternate is pretty basic with their M on the chest. lastly, the BP uses the alternate M and recolored to match the Angels base.

The next organization in the series is the Atlanta Braves. Most of the set stays the same with some new additions. The tomahawk sleeve patch is added to all uniforms, therefore the current cream alternate is eliminated. In its place is an "Atlanta Pride Fauxback." It tweaks there old throwbacks with the feathers and recolors them. A little bit based off of the NBA, despite their ugly uniforms, I like their civic pride concept. I reverted back to the old red alternate instead of their quite awful current ones. The blue road alternate is given a bit more color with the addition of red. The A tomahawk returns in the form of a BP cap as well.

I like what you have done so far, and I especially like the Braves. I do have an issue with the presentation, though. Look at your post above. The uniforms are so tiny that I can't see anything without clicking on the picture to enlarge it. And I'm on my computer; it would be minuscule on my phone. Look at all the white space in your presentation. Crop that out. Then put your uniforms in two rows so they all appear larger when you post them. You worked hard on these designs, show them off. Right now it looks like you are trying to hide them.
