Yes, I know this is a fashion cap, but would you want to see this as a regular cap?

Maybe if the M was something other than black. It's a nice mash-up of eras.

No.

 

That M was never good, and that cap is way too much black.

Here's a great article on New Comiskey and what could've been for the White Sox' new stadium. Talks a lot about Camden Yards too: 

 

https://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/the-white-sox-ballpark-in-chicago-that-never-was-and-could-have-changed-history/

 

I wonder if the White Sox will be looking for a new stadium in the near future. With the right design and location, they can really compete with the Cubs for relevancy in Chicago in the long run.

Speaking of ugly backdrops and ball parks, can anyone tell me why designers put exit/entrances right behind home plate?

Drives me f'n nuts to see all that commotion right behind the batter in game situations, Colorado and their Coors field is just one awful example.  Always someone walking back and forth

How jarring, in a bad way, for the Marlins to go from their Players Weekend jerseys to their usual "White Sox washed with crayons" look.

Going back to that rumor about the Marlins dropping the orange and going to that light blue along with black and silver, check out the colors in this image sent in an email about upgrades to the ballpark experience. It's probably nothing but it is light blue, black and silver/white and it does look good...

At least Dinger wasn't there ...

Dinger hanging out there is what we call "cringe awesome," it's so bad that it's great. 

 

My team's color commentator once went off on a rant about Dinger, it was amazing.

You mean because the blue sky is reflecting off the windows?

Definitely is a departure from the older media from the team which was orange heavy. Seems very classy. We'll see how it goes.

Worst part is that that empty space means fewer people to reflexively duck and cover when a foul ball comes at them. Always get a kick out of that.

Looks like a flier for a luxury condo building, not a ballpark.  Ballparks / baseball should be fun.  No kid is looking at that and begging daddy to take him to a game.

Sure but no kid anywhere is thinking about baseball these days, so.

Place needs a better name. That big white glassy blob is not a "park."

Hey here's an idea, can every new baseball stadium NOT have brick backstops( I know there nothing that can be done about the advertising scroll).

When does the 2019 MLB thread happen? When the first 2019 uniform change news comes out? I'm already excited for it. These threads become a fun journey for a full year. It's the reason I keep coming back to these boards.

Usually wait until we see some kind of uniform/logo change announcement for something to be used next year.
