MLB alts in post-season

Does anyone know if mlb made a rule about alternates can't be worn in the post season? Because so far none of the teams have worn an alternate jersey. I remember last year a lot of alternates were worn. Last year the Twins wore their alts on the road however, this year they didn't.

I must say this has been a nice change.

yeah, that was weird- but there are few alt. wearing teams out therethis year

It's not drastically fewer, five compared to six. In fact one of the worst offenders, the Astros, are in there and have yet to do so! I hope it stays this way. Keep alternates OUT of the post-season.

not only that but for most games on the DS and LCS. it was kinda like our good luck uni, the grays didn't bring us many wins. if i remember correctly the marlins were way better when wearing the black unis by a wide margin. i didn't mind as long as we didn't wear that road uni.

Would not be surprised to see Astros in solid white alts Saturday and in the "brick" alt tops Sunday. This has been the pattern at home during the regular season since moving to new ballpark.

You called it on the White Alts for today

I have no problem with alternates in post-season, as long as it is done on the same system as during the regular season. For example, if alts are worn for Sunday home games, then they are OK for Sunday home games in post-season -- but not other times.

Then again, as a Yankees fan, I never worry about such stuff. (Pinstripes at home, gray on the road.)

Yeah, that was weird... Which brings up a question: Were the Marlins the only team to win a world championship wearing their alts?

I think the Pirates or the A's of the 70's won in their alts.

In the modren era of the late 90's to present, Yes the Marlins are the lonly team. However only the Marlins, D-Backs and Angels have won the world series outside of the Yankees. The Mets, Padres, and Indians wore there alts regularly in the series but lost.

The Twins wore the alternates once since the All-Star break. That was the day after they clinched the division title in Chicago. They also bagged the red caps at home on Sundays after the break. I like the red caps. However, wearing the blue alternates every other day gets a little tiresome. I think it looks more professional wearing the standard uniform, especially during the postseason.

I definitely love the Cubs alts, but their pinstripes are classic too.

I hear the Yanks and Bosox will be wearing special unis for the ALCS. The will both wear glitzy gold and green spandex suits in honor of the fact that FOX will make a load of money from ratings and advertisements they wouldn't have made if the Twins or Angels made it.
