I'm wondering how everyone feels on this subject with the Cubs & Dodgers dropping the last names. Personally, I think last names should be on every jerseys like the other major sports. It makes things easier with identifying players. I don't see how this "tradition" has any merit to it. Are the Detroit Tigers' home jerseys any less traditional because they have their last names on the back? Not at all.

Edit: Oops, I messed up. Can somebody change #2 to "Last names optional on home jerseys (including home alternates), required on roads"?

not having last names on the backs of jerseys isnt as much tradition as much as it was "oh, I guess I never thought of that." Its not cuz they though it was better to not haves names I'm sure, it jsut hadnt been done yet. I dont think a jersey looks any worse with the names on it.

The only team that shouldn't have last names on the jerseys are the Yankees. I hate them... but they've always looked good w/o the name.

I voted for ALL, but I would have three exceptions. The Yankees and Red Sox have never had names on home jerseys, so they are exempt. The Cubs would also be allowed to go nameless since they only added names in the mid 90's and recently corrected the error.

Of course, If I were comissioner, alternate jerseys would be gone all together, so names on them would be a moot point.

No, the Yankees should not be exempt. All teams should have last names on all uniforms as a matter of providing extra information to the fan. And while I love the Yankee uniform and all the tradition behind it, adding last names on the backs would hardly be a breach of tradition.

Home teams: Names mandatory on back.

Road teams: Names mandatory on back.

Teams that refuse: Fined $10,000 per player per day. That means you, Steinbrenner.

$10,000 is Toilet Paper to that guy :P

But the names are so small you can't even read the names from the stands. It should be an option some teams with tradition such as the Yanks and the Sox shouldn't have names where teams like Tampa should.

Tradition should have a say in the matter. It is one of the Yankees biggest traditions.

optional names for both home and away. i'd go a bit further and make nicknames optional, just as long as nobody decides to put CHANNEL on the back :D

HELL NO!!!!!!!! I dont wanna make the mlb like the XFL! :mad: I dont want the announcer to say " Next up Jason "He hateme because i took steriods" Giambi!!!!!!!!". I mean maybee the NFL, only because i wouldnt mind seeing Guys like Pacman Jones or Cadillac Williams have Pacman or Cadillac on their jerseys but even thats a stretch
