Heck, any dark color with pink will do:

Ah yes...my beloved hometown Wahoos.

 

I remember when the Blue Wahoos first unveiled their identity. I was initially taken aback by the inclusion of pink (well, they call it "Bright Rose") into the colorway...but it grew on me EXTREMELY quick. Their rose-billed alternate cap is my personal favorite--not just of the wahoos--and naturally I own one of each--but of my entire cap collection. (So much so my wife even found me a similarly-colored polo to match!)

Not crazy about pink as a sports color, though I like light pink dress shirts. However, the Calgary Hitmen should absolutely be in hot pink and black all the time. There's no acceptable alternative.

I think there are a lot in this thread that look very good.  "Womens' sports" v. "Mens's sports" doesn't factor into it.

Well, I did say there are a FEW that pink in their color scheme works for them. Cerezo Osaka had some gorgeous looking kits in the past using pink and purple. As for the women's vs. men's argument...I never made that a factor. It's just there are a lot of teams, in this thread, that look like the bottom of 3rd graders desk...if you known what I mean.

Team Telekom was always iconic at the Tour de France. Specially when worn by the one and only Tourgott, Jan Ullrich.

So stale, chewed bubblegum is an argument against pink in sports? That seems like a reach.

A bold pink could absolutely work as a major league sports color.  Pretty much any bold color can.  A pastel or light or "faded" pink simply wouldn't - but that goes for (IMO) a lot of colors, not just pink.  Pink can look very feminine, but it can also look just as bold and intimidating as any other color when used correctly.  If a team treats it as a joke and puts their players out there in pink for a night, and they're all laughing about it, then it becomes a joke.  If a team takes it seriously and makes it their color and their players embrace it, then even the most neanderthal of fans will buy in.

Shameless plug for my fantasy football team the Ft. Lauderdale Flamingos

Our number font is also the same one used by another navy, pink, and light blue team that was mentioned earlier, the Pensacola Blue Wahoos.

If we're doing fantasy plugs...

I think pink works in the same way teal does, in that it shines as a secondary colour against predominant black.

 

Pink is an excellent sports colour IMO.

Pink kits might be good sometimes.
