It's destined to happen. I suspect they want the rebranding to "settle" a bit before they start making changes like that. Or for Nike to fully take over.

They haven't yet?

Yea, they haven’t introduced their propriety templates and fabrics yet. Right now they are just taking majestic uniforms and putting a swoosh on the front.

I thought that was going to only be for last season.

COVID probably threw a wrench into those plans and forced them to delay introducing Nike templates for another year.

The absolute best.

This was the first World Series to feature a special sleeve patch. I always found it interesting they used the “Battle of the Bay” logo as opposed to the normal one. Makes me wonder if a patch would’ve existed had a Bay Series never happened.

Pretty sure if it was the Blue Jays and the Cubs in the '89 World Series, a regular patch that was a continuation of the late 80s' look would have been made. The Battle of the Bay was a special contingency option.

The pennant looks really stupid.  If it was fully extended, the 19 and 89 would be like 3 feet apart.  That's also one of the worst scripts I've ever seen.  What the hell is up with that d?  The W and d both show parts that pass in front of the letters (or behind), but none of the others.  Shouldn't the loop in the l be in that style too?

 

It's easily the worst WS logo of that era.

Possible leak of the new Nike template

If that's what they go with, then it's a lot more tame than I expected. Thank God the perforation on the numbers isn't translucent like it is on the college numbers. It's much more reminiscent of the NHL numbers. Also, it's interesting that they have non-contrasting piping around the neck.

Looking at all of the World Series logos, I think the the 80s MLB logo was super,

transcended only by the mid-90s one:

(with this nice bridge in between the two):

I'd be happy with either of the top two being the de facto standard moving forward in large part because they're both nice and their repetition built some nice brand equity. While there are some nice logos in the 2000s and 2010s, their one-off nature makes them feel less-than.

 

Of course, this avoids the obvious point that MLB peaked in 1977:

The sleeve patch on the new template looks really cheap...but it might be the way on all the current ST unis.

 

Interesting that it looks like they're going to more of a cuff look.

They reversed the colors on the sleeve. Currently, it's powder blue on the "inside", white in the middle and royal/jersey color on the edge of the sleeve. On the potential new ones, the royal and powder blue are reversed.

Those templates are fine enough although I'm not happy with the perforated numbers or positioning of the MLB logo.

I just noticed the Padres wear the pants they pair with their camo uniforms for ST. White, no pinstripes, with a brown stripe down the side

So I've noticed 3 additional Spring Training/Batting Practice/warmup tops for my team this spring not including the usual ST/BP jerseys. This means there are four options now? Anyone else notice this for other teams or anyone know where we can see a collection of these other options?

 

Here they are...

First here's their usual ST/BP (buttoned down blue jersey, cap logo on chest, black blue red sleeve piping, name and number on back)...

Image

Here are two more in the same pic, black with blue sleeve and collar trim and the cap logo on the chest, and black with blue raglan sleeves with wordmark across chest...

Image

 

And this final one needs a few pics to show the details, still couldn't find a clearer shot (solid blue tops, no piping or trim, no name or number on back, number on the left sleeve instead, the alternate "fish only" BP cap logo on the chest)

The short-sleeve black top is on fanatics listed as a jacket

It's the same material as a windbreaker.

The Fish need to wear that blue jersey in regular-season games.

1. World Series logos need to be designed knowing they're going to be a patch. Something can look really good as a logo, but fail as a patch.

 

2. Just because nike offers perforated numbers does not mean all teams will use them. Look at NHL, adidas offers it but not all teams use it.
