Nike Launches New MLB City Connect Uniform Series

I think that teams have the ultimate final choice but I think Nike has a lot more pull than most think. They are basically controlling what the NBA teams wear, so I wouldn't be completely surprised if it is or will be the same in MLB.

It depends on how much control the leagues and teams give them in the end. The NFL is nothing like the NBA, and the NFL’s uniform rules are much more conservative like the MLB’s. So I highly doubt Nike will be telling the Yankees they need to wear the blue and orange city connect jerseys 68 times a year and Yankees not coming back and saying “you can go :censored: off we wear pinstripes and you may get one use out of this bs jersey”

When ever has a team played against a team in sand while wearing grey? Show me examples


Why do I need an example? They’re two different colors, and it’s objectively easier to tell the difference between sand and grey vs. two teams wearing red or blue.

I know it was late last night, but do I really have to explain what I meant when I said "Red-red probably has higher contrast though than sand-grey" under a picture of two teams wearing identical color jerseys right after a post about how sand and grey are supposedly completely incompatible because you wouldn't be able to distinguish the two teams?

Here's another example of high contrast red-red and blue-blue match-ups. (The pants are different colors though, to be fair).

 

 

Can you explain how any of what’s in those two photos could be described as “high-contrast?” I’m just not putting it together.

"The Bronx" is the borough's name, though.  Leaving it off would be like using "Francisco" on a Giants jersey.


That’s a stretch. There’s a reason articles are often omitted from acronyms, while it would be unfathomable to eliminate “San,” “Saint,” or “St.” from an acronym.

Because no teams primary home uniform has ever not been white/cream. There has never been a sand home uniform

I think he is using the word "contrast" incorrectly.  I think he actually meant the exact opposite of that; that the colors/uniforms look too similar to each other.

The sad thing is I thought this could have been legit at first glance.


That’s why I posted it lol. For a split second I thought it was the real thing. I wouldn’t put it past Nike at all.

Well, spot the lie.

I like the idea of the jerseys. I can see why he got upset though because you have players wanting to use emojis instead of just using a nickname or regular name. On the opposite side, it seems kind of pretentious of Gardner to get that upset about something as little as a NOB, too.

I mean, guy plays for the New York Yankees, if he doesn't want to dress like a beer-league softball player, that's a reasonable concern, even if State School Deadspin in your link there didn't approve.

Honestly just pulled the first link I saw.

along with most of the other original PW jerseys worked quite well. They don’t need the nicknames. I agree with that. A team should’ve been able to decide whether or not to use NOBs.

But, I never said there was. I said a team wearing sand could play a baseball game against a team wearing grey without issue because the two colors are different and baseball does not require the same level of contrast as a game like football or hockey. The evidence for my claim is that baseball teams play each other wearing the same color on occasion, which is objectively worse in terms of contrast.

Which is why teams with similar color schemes should be in contact with each other prior to facing off.

Are they not already?


I mean, its good that teams wearing the same color is rare (should be never, in my opinion), but the fact that it happens and it’s clearly not an issue for baseball is the point at hand. Sand vs. grey would be functionally passable for an MLB game. End.

Back when I played little league when I was 12 we beat the beast team in the playoffs, the Yankees, and they were wearing damn near the exact same uniforms that the actual Yankees are in that picture. It’s very weird, but I guess it did exactly what they were trying to do? Just bizarre to see the actual pro teams wear those Starter knockoff style jerseys. Definitely something I didn’t expect to ever see.
