If they were going for a more "retro" look they could ditch the red jerseys and bring back the road jersey they wore circa 1986...also I think Boston has had that B on their cap since like 1930, there's no reason for them to wear an alternate cap.

The Red Sox are one of those clubs that pride themselves on tradition...playing in an old ballpark, no names on back of jerseys, etc. I can't imagine these will sit well.

I think their uniforms should have a bear with red socks walking through a big "B."

I like the idea of two alternate jerseys; one for home and one for the road. I wish the SOX would change their road black alternate to say "Chicago" instead of SOX and then keep the current black SOX alternate for home games only.

Those jerseys blow. I like the idea they had with the road greys, but they're just way too bland.

ES on the Boston sleeves; PN on the Yankee sleeves.

IIRC, those jerseys had the traditional numbering in red. The numbers are navy on these and look pretty standard and boring.

For every new jersey and hat sold a portion of the proceeds will go to a special charity: The Mark Texiera foundation for personal enrichment

I think the road jerseys are great. Throwback to the ones they wore in the 80's and 60's. The current roads were too similar to their home jerseys.

That said, alternates are terrible. Not just for the Sox, but for every team. More teams need to follow what the Dodgers, Tigers, and Yanks do. One home, one away.

Downgrade. The gray jersey is alright, the alternate jerseys are bad, and the hat is terrible. A pretty blatant cash grab to add two alternate jerseys and an alternate hat.

They seem to be universally hated by all.

what sucks is I can no longer use the argument when people refer the Red Sox as just 'the Sox' as "our team has SOX on its hats, your team has B" because their hat has socks on it now.

EDIT: I lied. It seems they are keeping the current B hat for the normal home and road jerseys, and wearing the new hat with the 2 alts.

Don't like it. The "hanging sock" hat doesn't look like it belongs on the baseball field but in the stands. Its not a bad fashion hat but does not look like a baseball hat.

I agree. It almost looks like a special free giveaway type of hat. Kind've like those White Sox hats with the diamond logo and the white sock in it. Not a real player's hat, but a nice hat for a fan to wear. I can understand why Red Sox marketing people thought this was a good idea though. I was at Fenway Park last year for two of the White Sox games and it seems by far, the hanging Red Sox logo type of hat (blue, pink, red, or green) was easily more plentiful in the stands than the traditional "B" hats which I found odd. At the Cell, the traditional S-O-X hats far outnumber any hats with the alternate black and white diamond sock logo. In any case, the hanging red socks logo hats are very popular in and around the city of Boston so marketing guys with no ties to tradition probably jumped at the chance to put those hats on the players.

So, is this the new batting practice jersey Jim Rice is modeling ?

Also, does anyone know when ESPN will be airing the one hour special about the Red Sox new uniforms ?

I guess I don't mind the new roadies, but I really don't see what was wrong with the old ones.

I'm kind of numb to the solid color alternates at this point. I understand that there's a revenue source with the alternates, but it seems like if you're going to do that, it should be something a little unique, like the Indians' throwbacks, or the Royals powder blue.

A one hour special for that? You have got to be kidding me.
