Black and White Uniforms Across MLB For Players’ Weekend 2019

Recommended Posts

This is the DUMBEST thing ever. Those white hats aren't even legible. I feel like this is MLB's answer to the NBA's All-Star Game wanting them to show off their shoe colors.

 

Dumb.

 

Dumb.

 

Dumb.

I don't know if I'll be watching baseball or Spy vs. Spy.

But seriously, "So clean" and infinite fireballs will be a response on Twitter like 80,000 times...which is a shame.

 

The White Sox script is the only good part about any of this. The Marlins might set the record for most number of jerseys that are completely illegible in one season.

Wow...who signed off on this garbage? I can’t even find the words to describe how disgusting those are.

They'll be popular with gang members, which MLB seems to think is one of its prime target audiences these days. Downright shameful.

These will probably sell pretty well. They'll also be difficult to watch and a scorekeeper's nightmare.

The Players' Weekend has always given us awful uniforms.  Not sure this is really any worse.

I don't like the players weekend gimmick, but at least I see the fashion cap/jersey value to last year's.  Are people really going to but this crap (I suppose so...)

Maybe the White Sox will actually wear white socks.

"Pitchers on teams wearing white will wear black caps to ensure umpires and batters have clear visibility of each pitch."

 

So the rest of the team wears a white hat but the pitcher wears a black hat?  This just gets worse.

I . . . I can’t believe this. To reiterate what others have already said, how someone could’ve thought this was a good idea is beyond me. This is not how I would’ve wanted monochrome to be reintroduced into MLB.

Majestic is just phoning it in now that they're in the final run as the provider of MLB's uniforms.

Literally the only thing I like about these is the new “White Sox” script. I wonder if this is the team signaling a new alternate that uses that script in the near future.

Seriously?  You could at least read the numbers on the old ones.

What made the Players Weekend promotion a treat over the past two seasons was that it was FUN.

For as much as baseball has struggled with resistance to players showing joy on the field, at least for a weekend some of the shackles came off. Using nicknames, bright colors, unique scripts or cap logos, all that was able to allow those games to feel a little less serious and a little less grim.

For 2019, baseball has seemingly stripped a good promotion of its unique character. Instead of fun, bright colors unique to each team we get everyone in black and white. A team or a few teams wearing all black or all white would have been ok but everyone doing it all at once robs the games of individuality. We don't even get unique jersey scripts since, except for the White Sox and Mariners, every team is wearing their regular jersey and cap designs. 

Its mind boggling that a promotion originally based on being light-hearted, whimsical, and quirky has pulled a complete 180 into grim sameness.

Well said, my man!
