MLB changes 2018?

Recommended Posts

I like them using the cap "D" on the jerseys, but they really should have designed a new Old English "D" to work in both applications. Shameless self-plug, but I'd suggest something like this:

It's light enough to work on a cap and bold enough to work on a jersey without deviating too much from their previous insignias.

Tigers new home unis. Matching the D on jersey with one on that hat.

This is the absolute ultimate CCSLC development.  We all know that the D's have not matched for years.  Most "regular" fans had no idea.  We all assumed it would stay that way.  And they're matching them.  That should generate a lot of excitement/discussion here while generating about as much hubbub among most Tigers fans as the Twins Target Field wordmark upgrade did in Minnesota.

 

I know I should like this, but that jersey looks really odd to me.  So does the cap.  I'm sure I'll get used to it.  It makes sense.  But it's jarring right now.

Not to anyone who's seen Trevor Hoffman enter a game.

Noooo! The Tigers picked the wrong “D” to unify! That’s too bad. Previous jersey “D” on the cap was all they needed to do. This is a downgrade.

The Mariners (or at least some of them, including Griffey) played in the field with their caps backwards?  How did I not know/remember this?

The good thing about the Tigers change is that the D logo will finally be the right size on the caps. I've always hated how small it was.

I'm fine with the logo unification, but more importantly, I'm glad they finally increased the size of the cap logo. Now that just leaves Chicago...

MLB Shop already has the new Tigers jerseys and hats up.  For those so inclined, the old versions of the hat are on sale, the 2018 version is full price and excluded from the sale promotion.

Not a fan of the bigger D on the hats either

Will take getting used to because of what we already are accustomed to but I think this is an improvement. The tiny D before always looked like an error.

Looking at those photos, they definitely chose the wrong D.

Personally, I picked up on the reference immediately, but I can see your point if someone did not know the connection.

@Bmac, how many more hats/unis have yet to be unveiled?  We've seen three today, plus still anticipating a thing or two for the A's.

I'm loving both the new Tigers home jersey and the new Royals alternate. They both look amazing!

The smaller English D had a more old-school feel, and that’s fitting for a team with the history the Tigers have. I’m not mad about the change but it it’s a shame.
