Best and Worst baseball alts

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm working on new Diamond Duds column about baseball alts (We covered sleeveless jerseys before) and wondered what you guys though the best and worst of the lot are.

Personally, I think the Athletics' green tops are OK, and use of the Braves red tops should be halted. Now.

Curious to hear your thoughts.

yeah, I am a Braves fan but I hate the red alts. I think they went to that because like 80% of the alts that were not black were navy or dark blue. So yea the Braves had to be different.

best alt still had to be the Seattle's teal!

I'm also a Braves fan who hates the alt. Here's my theory as to why it looks the way it does. This is the 10th anniversary of the Braves' 95 World Series Championship. All along one part of Turner field they have banners marking each of the playoff years whether it be a division championship(yellow banner with blue #'s), League Championship(yellow banner with red #'s) or the one W.S.C.(red banner with blue numbers outlined in white). The jersey follows this same pattern as the World Series banner in that it is red with blue piping, text, and #'s, all outlined in white.

I don't like the current Seattle navy blue home alternate jerseys. They look too much like the D-Backs with the font. The white home jersey is one of the best jerseys in baseball and they should stick with that all the time.

I'm a Braves fan also...well actually no, but I hate their alt and the Red Sox. I like the A's, Brewers and Rangers.

I actually like the Braves' alt, I was going to mention it was one of the best. I also like the A's green alt, the Pirates pinstripes, and the Indians home alt.

I think the Yankees alt. is the best.

My thouhts exactly -- the best alt is none at all.

All the rest are tied for second. :rolleyes:

I don't mind alt's, as long as they are classy and are only worn on occasion.

My favorite has to be the Rangers blue (when worn on the road with the grey pants.) Saw it when they played in Phila, and it instantly became my favorite.

My least favorite is probably the Cubs.

I'd probably like it if it had some kind of trim, or at least the C-UBS logo on the chest instead of the C Bear. I grew up with the Cubs wearing exclusively blue on the road, and I think it could work, but this jersey just looks like a warmup or something. Also, they wear it at home too often, depriving me of seing a great home uniform in person when I went to Wrigley last summer.

My avatar displays my bias so I won't even mention the birds, but I love Pittsburgh's.

All Rockies black vest jerseys must be burned.

Black Orioles alt far and away my fav... would love to see the Cubs in something similar... blue w/red numbers/letters w/no white outline... simply the "C" around "ubs" in red on the left chest....

Thumbs up to:

Orioles

Royals blue

White Sox

Rangers sleeveless

Twins (anyone remember the horrible red alt they had?)

Brewers

A's

Make me ill:

Braves

Mets

Arizona (the whole set is bad... start over... Tampa and Toronto too)

Colorado black sleeveless

Royals black

Astros
