Black and White Uniforms Across MLB For Players’ Weekend 2019

Recommended Posts

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.

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


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!

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

 

Couldn't  have said it any better myself, this is clearly for the "These are lit :::insert fire emoji::::" crowd.

To be honest I don’t really think these are marketed well to anybody, even the young crowd. They’re literally just plain black & plain white jerseys. I normally don’t like when people say “this design probably took 5 minutes to come up with” but this might be one time where that actually might have been the case...

Yea, these are horrible, that any one with even a decent taste should not want these.

They could have accomplished the desaturated look they went with by just broadcasting every game in black-and-white.

So whose bright idea was it to have those white on white and black on black caps be worn in real games?

Terrible.

 

It's like the LeBron-era Heat trash mixed with mid-2000s fashion hats you'd buy at Lids.
