I like this recent trend with ball teams making their main logos simple and to-the-point. That said, I would like to see the 1966-91 logo come back as a sleeve patch.

Why is the patch only on caps for opening day?

Seems like a big accomplishment. 

Maybe do something like we've seen on the back of caps. Incorporate the already existing batterman with some side art

Or why not Incorporate some gold. This was on all jerseys and caps for AL squads in 2001

Others a bit blank

Now that I look at it, it's all a bit of a joke. 18 years pass and we have a 50 year jump in patches? 

 

Super uninspired. But maybe these older patches are a bit too crazy?

 

There needs to be some middle ground. I would've embroidered 150 in gold next to on top of the existing batterman, and had the batterman in gold.  Some of the ring ceremony caps have gold accents. I tend to like the subtlety. Here, MLB and 150 in red and blue feels totally generic. Are they expecting us to drop an extra $3-$10 for a rinky dinky mlb150 logo? 

 

Just sort of rambling here.

They did 125 way better with the gold MLB patches and "medalions" on the backs of the caps

I always thought the 125th pin on the back of the hat in 1994 was cool, though with the tacks driving into the hat, maybe not most comfortable.

2003, we saw this 100th anniversary ws patch

And this for their team

Not a fan of leagues and organizations using different timelines. I know the NFL Packers have the same issues. 

 

I know the 125th happened 25 years ago, so they've been consistent with how old 'their league'. But even back then, it didn't quite make sense to me. 

 

But yeah. This is all we need. phils.JPG

Im sure there's a better way to add it to the back of a hat in this common era. 

 

MLB, you can do better.

I'm fine with this! There are enough giant bulky patches floating around MLB. Keep it understated, don't draw attention away from the teams themselves, leave room for team-specific things as needed.

Its not that hard to comprehend - there is a difference between celebrating 150 years of professional baseball, celebrating 100 years of the American League, or celebrating 100 years of the World Series.  Each is worthy of commemoration, and each is an entirely different milestone.  Would you stop celebrating your birthday once you get married and start celebrating your anniversary?

 

 

And although it’s not quite the same thing, why exactly shouldn’t the Packers celebrate their 100th, just because it happens to come before the NFL’s?

Alleged Padres prototypes on Twitter today.

Kinda doubting the legitimacy of these, but I wouldn't be upset if this were accurate.  I don't care for solid tops with pinstriped pants, but these are such as upgrade that I'd gladly overlook it.
 


Of these, I think I prefer the bottom left.
 

 

 

 

These aren't "alleged Padres prototypes", they are just one person's concepts based on the descriptions of the new uniforms we've gotten so far. Although he clearly left out the description "a lot of white".

Interesting that it's two teams that are top 10 in attendance. You'd have thought MLB could find someone who wouldn't mind losing a home game or two.

Losing the ability to watch live a rivalry division game when both teams are on the upswing is pretty devastating for home fans. Will season tickets reflect this change? 

 

Have any NFL London games featured division matchups?

Given the season ticket rolls for Boston, I highly doubt this has any negative impact.

Was just gonna post about the rays when I saw the spring unis and did some research then came here to see it was posted. Never knew why they weren’t there in the first place. As for the Padres, please have a gray road uniform...and tell your division mates in Arizona to do the same. Thanks

I’m sorry but those Padres mock ups are horrible. Be a real shame if that’s what comes out of years of begging and back and fourths of what to do

This is what I have done so far for the 2019 season. There are a couple of minor changes I need to make but this year I have had the ability to stay on top of the new uniforms.

Why do they have to wear the home jersey for both games? Why can't they alternate home and away jerseys?

I wouldn't say my favorite but it's a cool look and I'm surprised it hasn't been done more...

 

Off the top of my head... late 80's Padres, 2000's Rockies, 80s/90s Twins only right? Anyone else?

Winged Angels. Yessssss Lord!

I look forward to the Red Sox beating the Yankees on two continents this year.

Could there be a new/old Phillies road hat?

 

 

 

I hope the creams aren't gone. Though I have said in the past I would like new road uniforms that are like the creams but with gray. Also hat hat is different from the 2008-2018 one in that it has a much thinner white outline.
