MLB Changes 2020

Recommended Posts

The Marlins black is great up close I think but could be better.  It's far away that's the problem.  I don't think they took that into consideration.

Stahp. But seriously very sharp work, but burn the idea. Forget it was ever thought up.

 

Edit: Actually that would look killer for the pro softball league that is supposed to start this month.

Needed to add a thought. Didn't want to quote twice.

I don't hate the overall idea as a fun mental lark, and I think that a form of it could work (although some teams should just rep their home uniforms as the ultimate show of their culture/city)

 

The devil is in the details.   Stuff like the piping not going all the way around the sleeve.   It makes it feel more like a cheap knockoff than a professional thing.

The Marlins need to just bite the bullet and switch to the teal/blue for the wordmark with the red/pink as the outline

Can we stop posting crap concepts from outside the board that have nothing to do with the topic at hand?

I second this, take this crap to the concept section.

Anyone willing to drop $120 for these?  The pockets are removable.

The Blue Jays using navy caps and helmets and undershirts with the powder blues is ridiculous. Too random, doesn't fit. It would have been fine with royal blue.

Yep.  Noticed that yesterday.  Makes the royal accessories stand out like a sore thumb.  The blue isn't really 'powder blue' - it's much brighter.  I'd like for them to have white numbers and wordmark with blue inner lines, but they really can't with the shade of blue they're using.

 

 

Like this:

Actually, in those photos, it looks like it could be the same blue, but watching it on TV, it clearly looked brighter than the powder blue that the Phillies use (which I assume was the same blue that all the teams used back in the day.)

 

 

 

EDIT: I neer noticed that the middle horizontal line of the E wasn't filled in!  I'll never not see that now!

But... it did have to do with the topic at hand? Did it not pertain to the discussion of a Marlins black jersey? Can I not start a new line of discussion around the potential of Major League Baseball utilizing City Alternates much like the NBA?

not really.  Neither did the other one you posted.

It did not, because this is the MLB changes thread.

You can!  I recommend you go do that.

It was. That's clearly a knock-off.

The link was from an auction site and claims it was game worn.  Here's the link... looks pretty legit:

https://sports.ha.com/itm/baseball-collectibles/uniforms/1984-george-bell-game-worn-toronto-blue-jays-jersey/a/7200-83389.s

 

and another image (from a different auction site, but same jersey)

rare-george-bell-game-used-1984-toronto-

 

 

 

I can't find any other images specifically of a 1984 jersey, so this may have been some modification or defect specific to Bell's.

Gotta disagree.  They look really nice and I don't see the randomness in them.  Is navy blue not a team colour?  

 

If it weren't for the fact it would Rob the home fans (when they are allowed back in) the opportunity to see them up close and personal, I would say the Jays should switch to them full time on the road.

Navy blue is such a minute team colour, that it would be akin to the Seattle Kraken using red helmets. Red is a more prominent colour than navy blue.

Use the white panel caps, complete the fauxback, and call it a day.

It's the inherent contradiction in powder blue nostalgia.   When they were a thing, they were the road uniforms.   But they're such a beloved thing to teams that they wear them as home throwbacks.

 

If teams want to add them back, they should just wear them as a road alt.   Fans will still love them and can either catch a road trip game at the closest city or enjoy them on TV.
