MLB BP jersey timeline?


Recommended Posts

"Official batting jerseys first appeared with the 1971 Chicago White Sox. They had begun to be more widespread by 1979. Among the first teams to wear a pre-game common style warm up shirt were the Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, the Oakland A’s, Minnesota Twins and the Baltimore Orioles, all of whom were wearing them in 1979." - MLB Style Guide, Sixth Edition 2012

Standardized BP caps came into being in 1999. I think the jerseys might have as well. Before then, teams had their own.

You might need to consult the Henderson guide.

Yeah this is spot on. The mesh hats first appeared in 1999.

But BP used to be standard hats (maybe some snap-backs in in the 80s) with non-templated team-specific jersey designs.
