Since there's a full font of that script, they should change the Chicago script to match.

I would be good with that but I know the current road script is pretty popular.

It's also better-looking than this new script.

I like the current one much better.

I really don't see what this new wordmark (and alphabet) bring to the White Sox set other than muddying up an otherwise solid brand.

According to the studio’s website, “The style of the wordmark pulls elements from the prior "White Sox" script logos as well as characteristics from the current "Chicago" script. It features minor bumps and hiccups along the contours of the letters as a nod to the imperfections of baseball's rich aesthetic history while still creating a unique mark with its own distinguished personality.”

 

To me, the new “White Sox” mark has a subtle laid back, retro vibe. Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like something from the crazy old Comiskey days. That said, it looks like it would be tough to pull it off with the road mark because it is so well executed as you show.

The W is way too imperfect, which I know was their intention but I think it actually makes the W look like an N with an exaggerated tail on the left side. There's just way too much of a difference in the two valleys at the top.

I actually wish they would use a black & white version of this:

Your graphic isn't showing up - can't link directly from the mothership.

Looks like the 2020 Spring Training logos are out, even if they have ugly branding with it...

It looks like a generic Spring Training logo by MLB to me.

Looks like a large lowercase cursive “e” with a space after it followed by “hicago.”

The White Sox uniforms for next season should be based on the 1987-1990 set based on the script of those ugly players weekend sets. On a Side note for the Southsiders, SCEA in MLB 20 The Show should add the 1979 White Sox White Top/Blue Trousers and Blue Top/White Trousers so that you can do plenty of mix n matching. I hate how they have the 1983 Home but not the 1983 AWAY!

No. 

 

The White Sox have a great set of home and road uniforms.  Why would anyone want to scrap those?

I understand why there is a cactus for the Cactus League.  I don’t understand why there is an Orange for the Grapefruit League
