College Baseball MLB Inspired Uniform Elements


Recommended Posts

I’ve noticed some college baseball teams have uniform elements inspired by MLB teams.  It could be as simple as something like the Astros rainbow, but I’m thinking more like what the FIU Panthers did in the past with a nod to the Padres.  I also recall seeing something from TCU that looked similar to the Blue Jays late 2000s era.

VT Baseball has had quite a history of utilizing the different MLB elements.

They seem to have moved away from this in recent years, but Purdue used to wear a Braves-style script

and they also messed around with a black jersey inspired by the late 90s Padres

Unsure if either was intentional, @Clintau24 is much more likely to know, but Auburn has occasionally worn a Yankees-like uniform in recent years...

Correct! Those pinstripe uniforms were often referred to as "Yankees pinstripes" by the team. They were replaced last year with a set that includes some more orange and a white hat, so the Yankee parallels are gone.

 

The Bo look is reminiscent of the cream throwbacks the Tigers wore for many years but have since mothballed and haven't worn since 2018. The orange numbers were directly inspired by the Dodgers.

 

Auburn has also worn a rather Twins-inspired "Tigers" wordmark back in 1997 and 1998.

I mean sure if you consider any teams that happen to share the same colors. Only thing they remotely share is the panel hat but that’s likely coincidence being a fairly common thing in college ball.

And here's Miami using a slightly modified version of the Marlins' current script:

I think this was SMS/Missouri State Bears best baseball look, unfortunately when they went to Adidas they went to a terrible generic look!

West Virginia used to have a similarly Yankees-like cap logo, though IIRC they did away with it somewhere around ten years ago.
