Baseball Uniform Nameplates

Recommended Posts

I am noticing that more teams are stitching names directly onto the backs of uniforms without using nameplates. Anyone else noticed this as well?

How many teams were using them last year, as opposed to this year?

Three

That's a dumb stance. You can execute good team-oriented fundamental baseball even if your last name is on your back

Yes, your right - but as a coach, I don't like it - that's my stance. Too many 'individuals' out there who want the the lime light. I appreciate my players who do their job every game w/o the personal glory.

Growing up, I had a name plate put on every jersey I bought. I love having my name on there. Makes you feel special. So I retract my statement, instead "I don't like, names on the jersey's, as a coach. But I know how it feels to get that jersey and to see your name on it" - That's cool.

Thank you for helping me reflect. I saw that statement after I posted it (#2500 no less - not a great one) and thought, boy am I going to sound like a jerk. Good point TCR!!! :notworthy:

(I guess I should only use the word "hate", Like, "I hate Nazis" :evil:

I don't think the # of teams using them is declining at all, in fact I'm pretty sure the only teams that don't use them are the White Sox, Cubs, Astros (pinstripe home only), Phillies home, Rockies, Dodgers and Yankees (obviously) and maybe Mets and D-Backs? But there's still definitely way more teams that use them than don't. Personally I like them, adds some extra flare to the jersey, but conversely can piss you off if you get one personalized and it doesn't have one, especially if you don't realize it for a few years..... :wacko:

Indians use them - saw the game tonight.

But they didn't always - I have a '97 home jersey without a nameplate. Maybe this started when they tweaked the unis with the silver trim.

In response to the "no names, this is a team" thing, I think baseball players are probably a lot less obnoxious than football and basketball players. I mean, you have your Rickey Hendersons and so forth, but you're not going to catch Marcus Giles popping his jersey, or doing a stupid dance.

EDIT: But I'd love to hear Chipper Jones go "aww yay-uh. ATL, y'all."
