Their old jerseys looked more blue than purple. With a league so overrun with shades of blue and red, it's refreshing to see the Rockies wear something different.

I loved the blue-violet shade of purple but looking at the new ones I can understand why they went with this change and I can live with it. As a matter of fact I appreciate a team making a change like this that is for nothing but aesthetic consistency only. More teams should care about their aesthetics like the Rockies just did. Some do, but not all.

 

I agree with both, especially that more teams should care about their aesthetics.  As was said somewhere earlier, I believe, if you're going to do purple...do purple.

They had one in 1999 and it was pretty good in my opinion but it got thrown away due to fan reaction and the fact that Chan Ho Park decided to roundhouse kick someone during a game. If it didn't have silver, especially on the hats, it probably would've been liked more.

 

 

 

True, it had too much going on, piping, silver. A blue Dodgers jersey should be the same as home, only blue.

And there could of course also be a blue away with Los Angeles script.

Supposedly Braves wearing these helmets in ST. I love them. Would really like if they used these along with the caps in the regular season occasionally.

If they shrunk the "a" a bit on the caps, I wouldn't mind it as an alternate cap. The one they use on the spring training cap is just too big.

I can't help but giggle every time I see Bartolo Colon holding a baseball bat.

Looks like not everyone on the Rockies is a huge fan of the new shade of purple.  http://www.denverpost.com/2017/02/16/rockies-new-color-purple-clubhouse-review/

Players reactions to the change were positive in this article:

Fan reactions on social media also have been almost all positive from what I can tell.

Yeah and I feel like all the negative feedback hasn't been truly negative. No one has said the color is ugly it's just a couple players who probably like purple less and they've basically just said "well it's definitely purple now"

I got one of those aut. #28 purple colorado jerseys from last season, looks amazing, I don't like the new color, way too feminine for my liking. Lakers perhaps also use that color but they got gold as well, so it works better for them. And it´s just shorts and a undershirt.

here in baseball we got some huge guys, i think some will look like Barney out there.  B)

I think the previous shade of purple was more classy, and fitting for a man. Something i would be more proud and comfortable of wearing than these new bright purple jerseys.

 

Does not look very good imo:
