The new patch on the SF set is a nice touch

Thanks! I've always felt their primary logo is a bit stale, plus incorporating the Golden Gate Bridge helps tie that into the "Giants" nickname.

Seattle Mariners

The Mariners get what is possibly the most drastic redesign of the series, with a modernized font & sleeve striping both inspired by their earliest uniforms, while bringing their iconic teal to the forefront of the brand.

Tremendous. Seattle's current designs are mired in a million outlines and too much silver for a team with teal (or something like teal) in its color scheme. Great job.

Agreed. Much like yellow & white, I find that teal & silver are much too similar in value & often end up "clashing," if they're not separated from each other as much as possible. Plus, the minimal amount of teal on the Mariners' main home & away jerseys makes them look like a plain navy & white team, which is much too boring for them.

Could you find time to do the Expos when you're done with active teams? Your concepts are all outstanding! I love the template

Thank you! I hadn't really considered doing the Expos, but I could certainly give them a shot!

St. Louis Cardinals

The "St. Louis" wordmark now adorns the away jersey, and the throwback jerseys are updated to be more period-accurate of the eras they each represent in Cardinals baseball history.

Tampa Bay Rays

The Rays get a complete redesign based off of their "Turn Back the Clock" promotion from 2012, creating a retro-inspired look that feels surprisingly modern.

Texas Rangers
The Rangers go all-in on the dropshadow to match the cap logo, as well as reverting back to their old script for the home & red alternate jerseys.

Toronto Blue Jays

The best uniforms in the American League don't need much improvement, so I just adjusted the powder blue jersey to be more accurate of a throwback to the appropriate era.

I like the design for the Tampa Bay Rays, but not sold on that retro script, as it is 1 - a blatant rip-off of the San Diego Padres wordmark from the 70's and it has 2 -a representation of the roof of the Tropicana Dome, I doubt the fans want a reminder of that white elephant on the jerseys.

The Blue Jays set is really good, but have to ask why the road has a black outline around the wordmark, it sticks out like a sore thumb on the set.

I never thought of the design in the "a" being a representation of the Tropicana Dome, I always thought it was a slice of a lemon or an orange or something like that.

 

Just out of curiosity, what kind of script would you want the Rays to go for? I struggled with that because I honestly feel that they haven't really had a great wordmark in their history, and to me the Turn Back the Clock one was the best of a mediocre bunch.

The outline on the road jersey is actually navy, and the Blue Jays road jerseys in real life have that outline too, in fact. I've always loved it, it's one of those quirks that just somehow works for me. I've tried removing the navy outline, but to me it suddenly becomes bare & not quite bold enough. I think the navy outline is almost essential to that jersey.

Washington Nationals

I made the striping more consistent across all of the jerseys, & flipped the colors of the away wordmark to match the home.

And that's a wrap! Thank you to everyone who followed along & checked these MLB designs out, I hope you enjoyed it! I plan on being back soon with some of my changes to the City Connect designs released so far, and probably some extra throwback jerseys after that.

I agree, the TBtC script is the best of a set of wordmarks that are either badly dated or lackluster and the team could really do with a new set, though the TB cap logo from the same set wasn't bad, even if it did have the same representation of the Trop in the lowercase b.

Personally, I would go for a wordmark that took inspiration from the signage in Ybor City for a wordmark that not only connected to Tampa (and the place they should play a lot closer to), but was distinct and easily recognisable.

A script inspired by either of those signs would be pretty cool.

Funny enough, I already had a different take on the Rays, inspired by a design that I did 5 years ago, that has a font similar to what you've suggested:

The font comes from the Daytona Tortugas, a Minor League affiliate of the Reds, & I paired their old forest green with their current columbia blue. It's definitely more distinct than most of the fonts the Rays have had in their history. I'd love to hear what you think!

Hello again! 

I'll be posting my City Connect adjustments for the 14 teams who have released a design so far. I'll post two teams here today, & then one per day after that. I hope you enjoy!
