But yeah, if on balance it cut off their revenue streams, selling the naming rights to Anaheim was a mistake. 


But did it? The Ducks aren’t hurt by it (are arguably helped), so why should the Angels be? From the Angels fans I’ve heard from, Los Angeles Angels has gone over with fans about as well as “New York Dodgers” would have.
 

I hope Nike only gives them Disneyland or “The OC”-themed uniforms as “City Connect” options. Force them into a bind!

At the very least they could have had the American League teams wear their road uniforms.  Weird to me to see both leagues in their home sets.

And I know several Angels fans in the Southland, including more than one in Orange County, who have a problem with Anaheim fans having a problem with “Los Angeles”.  We haven’t come as far as we might have hoped.
 

But as for the other, hockey isn’t baseball.  They can all look the same from the outside, but the economics of one sport don’t necessarily have any bearing on another.  Moreno found that sponsors weren’t willing to pay as much for deals with an “Anaheim” team as they were for “Los Angeles”.  And the city of Anaheim wasn’t paying him enough to make up the difference. 

 

It was only ever a naming rights deal anyway.

I honestly didn't even notice the AL players were in home unis. I think I was too busy being ecstatic no one was wearing the awful ASG uniforms.

 

I know it's a pipe dream but I'm still holding out hope they ditch them last minute and everyone wears their regular uniforms tonight. Would be such a welcome surprise.

 As for Jacksonville, I'll tell you what I tell everyone else about it: it's basically the most spread out bedroom community in the country, and aside from Orange Park, San Marco, some parts of Baymeadows and the immediate downtown core, may as well be a giant trailer park by the beach (much like the rest of the state). Now it does have a pretty strong business/logistics economy going for it, so there's that. But yeah...it's trying to come up a little bit from what I saw last time I was there.

I never would have thought I'd see Orange Park mentioned on this site, having gone to high school in the area.

 

Personally, I find Jacksonville to be quite a bit underrated, but that's mostly due to its proximity to the beach, rather than anything in the city itself. Riverside is pretty nice though, with a great art museum and independent movie theater.

You could not pay me to go to Tallahassee. 

As someone who is currently studying at FSU, I don't blame you. There really isn't much there beyond the college campuses and the government buildings.

They're doing team photos at ASG in regular team uniforms. Makes me sad we won't get to see the regular looks in the actual game

For as long as I've been paying attention they use the All-Star uniforms for the Home Run Derby.   Thus far I have not seen the All-Star uniforms once the entire weekend.   Is there, perhaps, an actual chance they have been ditched?   It's the last day of the All-Star festivities and I haven't seen a trace of them anywhere.   Seems odd to just suddenly break them out for the game and not before.

Players haven't worn them yet to my understanding, but i did see some of the kids handing Gatorade to the players last night in the derby wearing them.

They're currently wearing the jerseys and hats for warm ups

 Yeah.   I have to say... they are terrible, but they look 100% better than they did in the pictures.   The red is a lot more vibrant.   The colors are obviously Braves-inspired, but one could easily wave them off as being the colors of the league.

 

A turd with glitter.   Still a turd, but better than it could be.

 

Given the last set had palm fronds, I'm guessing local flora is going to be a theme from now on, or at least that was the plan.

To whoever raised the question, the AL is wearing matching navy pants with the jerseys.

 

IMO, I'm more turned off by the jersey design than the monochrome uniforms. I would much rather have the regular uniforms for each team worn for the All Star Game, but I'm not opposed to the concept of monochrome colors in baseball (used in moderation)

Screw the league for allowing nike to change the aesthetic of the ASG. If ya wanna show off alts. Let the teams where their colored alts like in the 70s. This is just a miss. Even if it was still in Atlanta this would be a fail.

Man they should've just ditched ASG jerseys this year because this blows. No ones buying these anyway. 

 

I did notice players have stars on the back depending on how many times they've been an All-Star which is an interesting touch.  This also doesn't look good.

It's like New Era has become like Taco Bell. They both essentially take the same ingredients for every product and rearrange them to make something "new."
