If it was me, I'd cry ever time I put that uniform on, and would likely descend into a lifestyle full of alcohol and pills until I ended up homeless and turning tricks in the supermarket parking lot at night with nothing but that wretched jersey to my name.   IDK about you but I'd rather not push players into a life of prostitution and substance abuse.

 

 

But at least you'll have a story to tell.

Well that’s why you aren’t a pro athlete. A normal person wouldn’t swirl into a life of depression from a patch

The Colorado Rockies are apparently getting a new uniform next year. Dick Monfort said so in an email response to a fan. 🤔

I'd have to think they're moving from the vests to black regular sleeved jerseys?

At the very least this tells us new unis are coming for MLB teams. Doesn’t sound like the virus put a pause on all teams.

Thank you for sharing that. It is really cool that you got a real response.

Well it all depends on what "next year" meant, could be 2022.

Maybe, but since this is 2020 and we're still months away from the 2021 season, I'm assuming "next year" is 2021. Plus 2021 would make more sense in the context of the email exchange. I believe the deadline for all 2022 stuff is March 2021 (but I could be wrong), so it'd be weird if he was spilling the beans so early.

March is the deadline to notify of potential changes, May is the deadline to have said changes submitted.

Went through a lot of the older pages of the thread, didn't see this...the Braves' 150th Anniversary logo/patch:

 

Atlanta Braves 150th Anniversary Patch

 

The weird thing is MLB Shop has the patch as "discontinued" but I think it's because nothing's been officially unveiled. So it's up on the site but not for sale yet.

 

Official patches are out there...

Cool that they worked the B and M in there, but it really doesn't need the "th".

Probably a stupid question but what do the B and M stand for?

Boston Braves (though originally Red Stockings) and Milwaukee Braves. The Braves are the oldest continuously-running team in the Big 4.

That’s going to be rough with the anniversary patch and all star patch the same year.

If they start too late that might be moot.

The Braves don't even wear sleeve patches so this will be a rare year where they have one on both sides.

While I was searching for images, I found this...was this ST like a year before the switch to the current set? Anyone know?

Oh the joys of being a Rockies fan! If I love the new jerseys I'll have to buy a blank because everyone is either on the trading block or out the door at their first chance. 

 

Idk what a new uniform would even look like. I'm working under the assumption that the new uni isn't just a simple alteration of the existing uniforms (i.e. Rockies on purples, sleeves on blacks, or alterations to home and road). If this assumption is right my money is on a new CR vest without pinstripes. It would give the team another vest option (something the players seem to like) and would give the Rox another home option. It would also match up with the introduction of plain white pants last year to be worn with the alternates.

I’m kind of torn with the Rockies. On the one hand, the uniforms need more purple (caps, undershirts, and socks) and a font that isn’t a Times New Roman variant with inlays. On the other hand, they picked a look upon their creation and have largely stuck with it for 27 years (akin to the Mets and Royals). It has brand equity, however terrible that brand is.
