2023 World Baseball Classic


Recommended Posts

Everyone's favorite international baseball tournament during spring training is back next year with a new look.


Figured this thread could also be used to talk about jerseys and caps too.

The logo feels like a bit of a downgrade, if only because there’s no longer anything to signify “baseball” in it anymore. Now it sort of just looks like a variation on Google Photos.

 

I’m curious to see if Nike will end up taking over most of the uniforms, though.

It looks like an app icon probably because an app will come out with that as the icon during the competition to stream stuff on that is separate from MLB

I wouldn’t doubt it. I just think the old logo could have worked just as well even if that’s what they wanted to do. Either that, or maybe fit a baseball shape within the center circle of the new one.

They desperately need an update. Their look reeks of the early 2000’s.

I'm just hoping that the team with the the best-looking uniform, China, doesn't change its design, as I just bought a China cap. (I haven't received it yet. I really don't like buying fitted cats online, due to wild inconsistencies in sizing. But the seller promised that I could return the cap if it doesn't fit.)

 

Even if China does change, the cap will still be beautiful. Nevertheless, I would prefer that it be both beautiful and current.

This is why I like erring on the side of being smaller. You can always buy a hat stretcher and stretch it to your needs. Much harder going the other way.

Opposite for me. I have a hat stretcher and it only temporarily works. Always seems to shrink back down. Did it on a 39thirty hat that I left it in and forgot about for almost 2 months. All my hats start to shrink after wearing them for awhile, anyway, so I need to go bigger so they fit better longer.

Are the uniforms still done by Majestic? I'd be all for a City Connect type design for every team. Baseball is huge in these countries and a little creativity would go a long way and they would sell a crap ton of merch. I'm so sick of all these international tournaments all using templated designs that just swap out colors and call it a day.

Nike is the MLB provider now, so i wouldnt be shocked if they provide the WBC uniforms too.

EDIT: I thought Nike outfitted most of the Olympic teams, but there were a few different brands involved. I'd like the multiple manufacturers to be the case, but I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't.
