Nike Launches New MLB City Connect Uniform Series

Recommended Posts

What's scary here is there are still people out there who honestly believe that this was some kind of one-off experiment. C'mon, do they not understand the door has been opened? My local sports radio talked about this and said "yeah they were goofy, but at least we won't see them again." Uh... No. It's just getting started.

Nike logic will have "city connect" meaning the Yankees will be in Knicks (winks) colors of blue and orange

I’m trying to be optimistic, but things like this make me sad. Sorry I don't know how to embed tweets in posts. 

 

EDIT: Looks like it's gonna be "Los Dodgers" across the front

 

 

Ugh, should have gone with "Los Doyers."

The Yellow Sox uniforms seem to, unfortunately, be a hit amongst the local yokels. I guess maybe a combo of “flames” culture, but also cleverly enough, they target the sizeable segment of Boston suburbanites who still try to score tragedy points off of the Marathon bombing. I saw a public Facebook account of some local fame post about them dismissively and get brutally shouted down by townies of all ages.

The average sports merch consumer will eat up anything you put in front of them. The Yankees could do a red and green Christmas uniform in the middle of July and it would sell like hotcakes. Don't ever look for low merch sales as a saving grace from this stuff because it's never gonna happen

To imbed you need to paste it as plain text - when you paste the address you’ll see a line underneath it

Wow a black jersey!!! Putting Los in front of an American team name!!! This sounds like this design is very inspired by the diversity of the city, no way they are just using lazy trends and ethnic tropes to move merch.

Well since it’s a proper noun that is how it would be translated into Spanish.

Guess at the end of the day this is who the City uniforms are created for. Most here will freak out and act like the world is ending. But if people in Boston like them and money is made, mission accomplished.

I love what the Brewers wear now, but the beer colored jerseys were pretty amazing. It sucks it didn't last for long. Hell, if we're gonna do this City Connect thing then the Brewers should just resurrect this idea.

The uniform itself wasnt BAD 

But for the Boston Red Sox it was completely TERRIBLE.

Those are not Red Sox colors.  

I guess that was my point. Nice looking uniform? Check. Represented Boston, but not necessarily the Red Sox? Check. They are not supposed to be Red Sox colors. For one day, this was a City of Boston baseball team. I fear that if you're expecting the coming city uniforms to match the various identities of the clubs, you're gonna hate most, if not all of what emerges.

As a lifelong Red Sox fan, New England native, and person with lots of Boston connections*, I wildly disagree that this is a "CITY OF BOSTON" uniform that the Red Sox were wearing. There's quite possibly nothing more BOSTON to a Bostonian than the uniforms that the Red Sox traditionally wear. Of course the Marathon in a big deal, but the idea that this uniform was at all some sort of nod to the city and its tradition is.... well, it's just wrong. I don't know how else to say it. This was not a uniform that represents Boston. It was a uniform that represented a Nike merchandising and marketing scheme. Full stop.

 

*I can't say I'm a Bostonian because I've never lived in the city proper. I mean, I COULD, but I would feel like a liar.

I think Celtics and Bruins fans might disagree that there's "nothing more BOSTON to a Bostonian" than a Red Sox uni. And while you may wildly disagree that this is a city uniform, that WAS Nike's intention. That, and to make money of course. You believe Nike failed, but I understood the connection, and appreciated seeing a fresh take.
