its not even teal.  its turquoise.

Yeah, plus, garish wasn't something I thought of while looking at that hat.

Texas is not the South, it's just Texas. The South stops at the borders to the East and the West starts at El Paso now. 

 

The stain of the Confederacy does not wash off that easily. 😉

The template is for the OOTP baseball PC game so sorry if it looks off...

 

But if Milwaukee doesnt make this their away jersey, we riot.

I’d be happy with that in either #PowerBlues or gray.  Just want that wordmark back.

Does the Marlins' switch to a very similar color palette make it hard for the Diamondbacks to keep that?

i hope it does, that teal is far too garish. Teal only looks good when done right

 

The way the Marlins wore teal from 96-02 looked amazing. It was the perfect amount, although I would welcome teal caps, even with a black brim, to make a comeback.

 

If the Diamondbacks move away from their turquoise, I hope it accelerates possibility that the Marlins readopt teal down the road. Hopefully by that point MLB will realize that teal is a sorely underutilized color in the league right now.

 

There are definitely some similarities between the latest Marlins rebranding and what the Diamondbacks have been wearing for the last few seasons especially in terms of color palette. I do wonder if the same person or group of people had a major hand in both designs. I would not be surprised in the slightest.

No that's still there. But most Texans consider themselves to be separate from the South, unless they went to Texas A&M. Hahaha!!!

This would be one of the worst away uniforms in the league if they were to do it.

Actually Marlins wore Teal from 1993-2002 and had a dope Teal batting practice Jersey that needs to be in MLB the Show. In 1995 the Fish abandoned the Away Teal cap with the Black bill in favor of a black one and also began wearing black caps in 1995 and for most of 1996. By 1997 Teal was gone.

 

As for Cleveland they can also do replicas of the 1975 uniforms as their new permanent set  of course sans the logo on the sleeve.

 

So for Uniform Changes in 2020:

 

Milwaukee and San Diego

 

Arizona tweaks their sets

 

Cincinnati has a new alternate

 

Anyone else getting new alternates?????

Do you have a reason for saying this that doesn't amount to a personal distaste for powder blue?

The fact is, whenever someone thinks of the Milwaukee Brewers or a minor league team does a Brewers appreciation night, its always the BiG and powder blue.  Powder blue, royal blue, and yellow were way too similar in brightness and didnt contrast enough.  But with the color scheme change, I think going back to powder blue would give it that needed extra contrast and would, IMO, be a hit amongst all Brewer fans.

Powder blue was always a mistake, for everything team who’s tried it. It looks awful, normal greys or even promote an alt navy over grey (similar to what the padres did) would be better than the powder.

I don’t think a powder blue jersey with a navy blue word mark would be a great look. To date, throwback alts have been reserved for home games. Maybe Milwaukee branches out to a road throwback and keeps the royal blue with the powder blue. That Milwaukee script is killer and definitely needs to come back regardless.

Looks like a bad photoshop job. 

 

But what does MLB shop say that it is?

It's the second-oldest jersey listed for the Brewers (as found when you sort by newest items), so I think it's just a bad photoshop and nothing more. It dates back to pre-2018.

Just to clarify some of the details here...

 

In 95 and 96 the black cap (which was around as a road and BP alternate since 93) became the primary home and road cap but the teal cap with black bill did occasionally make a few appearances as a road alternate. Here's Al Leiter with it in 96...

The home all teal caps disappeared in 96 but in 95 they were still around with the Sunday home alternate vests which still had the teal sleeves. The black sleeves and black vests didn't come to Sunday home games until 96. Here's Andre Dawson with the teal sleeves/caps/helmets in 95...

It shouldn't, considering how many teams share almost the exact same color palettes. Two teams sharing a relatively unique color scheme shouldn't stop them especially since they're not exactly the same (they're actually pretty different for being so similar, if that makes any sense) and the teams use their color balances very differently. There shouldn't be much of a real confusion as to which team is Miami and which team is Arizona. Their reds are very different, their blues are very different, and one team uses their red almost more than their black while the other team only uses their red as an accent color.

Here's the navy version:

I’ve put off getting a new navy cap until I saw these. The hats look more balanced than the new logo IMO.

 

i like it.
