News to me, there is also a red version of the Nats new Spring Training/BP hat:

Those hats lasted part of only one season.  Ripken hated them, compared them to railroad engineer caps.

Here's a slo-mo of Sean Doolittles delivery that also shows off the new spring jersey and hat being used by an actual player.

 

Also it seems that the red spring hat is being paired with their red jersey (last years spring uniform). I'm guessing that's their road jersey for spring games.

Those Padres concepts a few pages back are bad. Stay as far away from brown pinstripes as possible. Also, adding a detached yellow outline against yellow numbers is bad. Hopefully the Padres keep things simple and as close to the 1969 jerseys as possible.

 

My favorite Orioles' jerseys are still the '90s homes. Maybe it's because that's when I started watching baseball and that's what Ripken wore when be broke the record. But the black wordmark, the headspoon piping. Just so damn good. I realize it was wrong for them to use black outlines in orange (that's a Giants thing), but to me, it still looks the best.

The Braves have a weird look for spring training. They're using their old design, navy blue with the blue Braves script and tomahawk outlined in white (basically an identical version of the old road alternate) but now with red numbers outlined in white (which match the design of their new road alt). They should have just updated their spring set to something more in line with their new uniforms.

1. That should absolutely be the Nationals' home jersey.  The curly-W makes a crappy chest logo.

 

2.  Orioles should be primarily orange with black trim, and the Giants should be primarily black with orange trim.  Any Orioles jersey with a black script gets a downvote from me.

I like that Nats jersey quite a bit, but they should reverse the script and outline colors. That looks ok, but the Nats should keep the red dominant at home and navy dominant on the road look.

Huh.  Would be nice that was made available for purchase

I love this script - the rough version on the mothership doesn’t do it justice.  I would love to see it used as the basis for their next uniform.

 

And man, the Orioles just might have the best primary home uniform timeline in the majors.  Not a stinker in the bunch, but a lot of variations on a theme.  If I was picking a team based solely on their uniform history it’d be hard to pass them up. 

I knew I liked you! (O's fan here)

I agree with this assessment. Heck, even their block wordmark looked good:

That is a great looking jersey . . . even if it is otherwise totally out of place in the Orioles lineage.

That blue looks really good, but the red gets kinda lost on the numbers and doesn't really add anything. I just wish they built the whole set around blue and not black.

The back side looks great but the front needs a lot of work. I like the blue as a solid color alternate but I can't get over the plainness of the design choices on the front.

Yes, lets go showcase our sport to a foreign country and have both teams wear uniforms that don't have the players names on them... that'll work. (to be fair that'd be a problem even if the Yankees wore their proper away unis for the game).

How close to the action will the fans be sitting in London? It might be brutal for fans even in the front row to watch an unfamiliar sport with players on both opposing teams wearing white uniforms with no last names on the back.
