When did the Brewers wear this patch?

Three iron workers were killed during construction of Miller Park on July 14th 1999. A crane used in the construction had collapsed due to high winds and falling debris hit a suspended basket the men were working in.

I believe the Brewers had the patches put on the uniforms within days of the accident.

I like the brewers new stuff, but man were those some nice looking uniforms.

I wasn't a huge fan of the "boring" M on the hat, but the wordmarks were fantastic.

Yea I liked the wordmark as well. Too bad the couldn't find a way to comine someof the new stuff with the previous set.

Put the "MB" logo fom the patch, and a green bill on that cap (like the 1995 road cap) and you have a winner.

My fav Brewers uniform set of all time is that 1995-96 set. Perfect.

oh the brewers in the gothic MBV logo, one of my favorites, it's death knell though was when they went the M by itself, it just never looked right

I liked the gold M, like in the 2nd pic. The white M was kinda boring though. I always felt the MB was very busy and cluttered. The unis themselves were outstanding. Especially the road grays.

It's an example, contra Nats, where a design can be too visually consistent. The script on the jerseys was awesome -- nearly as good as what the Brewers wear now. The numbers and player name lettering were better than what the Brewers wear now. But both the original MB cap logo and the plain-old M cap logo looked horrible on the caps. They perfectly matched the jersey logos and the rest of the uniform design. But what looks good on a jersey doesn't necessarily look good on a cap, and the ugly caps absolutely ruined these uniforms.

An M with wider proportions, like what the Milwaukee Braves (and early Brewers) wore would have been much better. (Not exactly that M itself, but an M with its wide proportions.) I can imagine it making these into instantly classic uniforms. But an attractive cap logo would not precisely match the script, which many seem to regard as a sin.

There was a time when I may not have agreed with that statement. But with Brewers management cramming the ball-in-glove logo down our throats, these are looking better and better all the time.
