Has any team ever worn their championship celebration uniforms as many times as the Nationals? I remember the Royals getting some good use but this is getting ridiculous.

I love when teams add something to their uniform to commemorate a championship. It should be more commonplace imo

This is a bizarre and non-traditional "season".... 

No fans were there to roar when the team's very first championship flag was raised or to see the rings passed out in person. I say go for it.

Memphis in white. The names were below number pre-restart. They still are, and messages arched above, taking some uniqueness away from the Grizz. 

Wow. "Whole New Game" indeed. Can't even recognize baseball anymore.

The Brewers have a neon MLB logo on the inside of their collar for each of their World Series Championships.

Rangers going with the red hats with the powder blues

 

Better, but the cap T still looks like it's from a totally different team.

Oof. From a distance, that white Rangers script on the powder blue looks pretty bright.

I think the system of wearing the patch on your uni year 'round works best.   It's a literal badge of honor for you winning the World Series but subtle enough in this work full of sleeve patches.

 

Around the league, Tampa Bay wore the Ray caps with their Columbia blues today.   They doing that this year, or just a weird one-off/pitcher's choice?   And I'm currently watching the White Sox in the winning ugly uniforms and the standard logo and an extra Nike swoosh are showing under the uni of Chicago's pitcher.   I've never seen that before.   The uni material just weird, or he sweat through that thing that much?

Ah, I figured our difference might rest on black belts after I submitted my last post. Personally, for any team that doesn’t have black in their color scheme, I’d rather them just use a color that is in their scheme, such as navy for the Yankees or Tigers, for example. It’s sort of like the gray vs team color facemask debate in football, I’d rather them just go with a team color almost every time.

 

As for teams that actually do wear a black belt, I know the Angels did for a while, and I’m pretty sure the Nationals have black belts as opposed to navy. Still, in those cases, I like red better for the Angels, and would prefer navy as opposed to black for the Nats (however, the Nats are a good example of a team that doesn’t need to match the belt & socks, as they often wear red socks).

 

Okay.   So there are teams wearing them.   I thought I was losing my mind.

 

The facemask issue is an apt comparison, I suppose.   But I think both just come down to what you think looks best and what was the case when you grew up.   I mentioned earlier the weird spiral my brain went down as I tried to come up with a consistent rubric for who gets black belts.   It just... seems... right with some teams.

 

In the same vein, the fact that the Cards were a big grey facemask team at the time I first became aware of the idea of the facemask even being a certain color confounds my brain.   They're one of the league's historic franchises but they have so little recent history and their uniforms have been so INCREDIBLY modern that it just doesn't fit.

So much better.   Wow.   The powder caps were way too much light.   This makes the red pop more, though the white is still way too much.

I figured that powder blue hat would be scrapped. I'm glad cause I didn't like it. It feels like you see this kinda thing all the time in baseball, the unique hats get canned after a few games. Remember the Marlins orange hat?

I'd rather just have them replace that useless pinstripe set with the 1982 fauxbacks and use it like the A's have their kelly green set.

 

Yup. They should have kept the royal pinstripes or had a different throwback alternate.  The pinstripe navy is out of place with the new set.

At first, I was all for the Brewers cream set. I thought the whole tie in to the cream city thing was kind of cool along with the the big cuff strips on the sleeves. After watching the Brewers series this weekend, I believe they should scrap the cream home and go with the pinstripes. Such a nice look for them.

Damn shame since I loved how that orange cap looked with the white uniform (and correctly colored accessories).

Yeah, this is the better home look right now.

Especially when they wear their pants like this.

I still have huge problems with this set, but this is the uniform out of the four that needs the fewest tweaks.
