The Twins are scheduled to unveil new uniforms. It was originally supposed to happen this week, but it may have been pushed back.

The batting practice hats are supposed to be completely re-designed for 2010.

These two new hats, KC and Minnesota, were leaked on the New Era site before being taken down:

I wonder if the Twins will be going back to the classic look-the cursive "Twins" script across the jerjeys that they had for so long.

The Twins wear two versions of that TC cap now. One is completely blue, the other has a red crown with a blue bill.

The blue crown/red bill design is new...similar to the Indians hats. I saw some Twins fans complaining that the hat looks too similar to an old Toledo Indians minor league hat....not sure if that is true.

Maybe as an alt, but their main unis will have an updated Twins script they have been using.

I wish the Twins would switch back to their old script M logo, I like that better than the Twin Cities one. The TC to me looks like the Reds plus the Rangers.

Thank the heavens.

I really liked the silver-billed White Sox BP caps (I have one) but the recent ones with the white trim going around the ear looked terrible in my opinion. (I don't have nor want one of those.) Honestly I think I'd love the hat without the white trim.

Always hated the "M" hat. The "TC" is the classic look, evokes memories of The Killer, Tony Olivo, Mudcat Grant and Kitty Kaat.

I pray the Twins get rid of the awful "away pinstripes." No one should wear pinstripes on the road and the damn nameplate looks ridiculous as it breaks the line of the pinstripes ... which is true of both home and away, I know, but looks more pronounced to me on the aways.

Which leads me to another rant ... why do Major League teams use nameplates? I understand they're convenient, but they look bush league. If one team can do without them, they all can.

I like the Twins makeover. Move outdoors and change the look.

I'm in agreement with the classic style of the TC hat and some modernized version of the 60's Twins script.

The M hat and the "WIN" Twins jerseys are so late 80s-early 90s.

I agree. One of my favorite SOX caps is the older BP hat with the grey/silver brim. It fits great compared to the current BP cap that has a funkier curved brim. I have one because it's black on black with the white trim, but some of the other team BP caps look like the players are wearing du-rags under their caps. Like the Cubs red/blue. Ack! :scratch:

I think the Twins will probably go back to the retro uniforms they wore on occassion this past season and switch between the blue/red and red/blue caps depending on uniform. The "M" might be gone completely.

The KC hats look OK, however I think their alternative retro road powder blue jersey looks bad with the white pants.

I think it's meant to be worn with their powder-blue alternatives. I always thought it looked ridiculous when they were wearing those with the royal-blue hat this season. It hurt my eyes.

However, I hate the idea of the Royals wearing powder-blue. They're the "Royals". Wear royal-blue.

About the TC hat. I think that's more clever and unique than just using the ugly M hat. It's a classic, and it goes well with their current uniforms.

Don't forget three caps too, along with the "Inaugural Season" shield on each cap. The Twins team shop (http://shop.mlb.com/family/index.jsp?categoryId=3915293) has some pictures of jerseys, caps and the shield.

I think the road jersey is an upgrade over what they had, and wouldn't mind it at all if they went with the throwback for their home jersey. It would look even better if they brought it back in a flannel.

The "alternate" cap ("M") should have been retired with the stadium move.

I've always thought if a team wins a World Series in a jersey, they should keep that set of uniforms. That's why I hope the Sox never switch their road unis.

Steve Dahl's classic line about the hat and their wordmark during the '87 World Series was that it looked like a candy bar logo.

One of these days we're going to see a team with so many alts and combos for pants/jersey/hat that they'll have a different uniform every game.

One home, one road, one alt. Then sprinkle in a throwback or two for ONE GAME ONLY each.

It was gold and black. I think the Pirates had 9 different combinations. The squared off, old style hats with stripes were also pretty wild. I think 1975-1985 quite possibly might be the worst era for baseball uniforms in it's history. Some that come to mind include:

- SOX pajamas w/shorts
- Houston Astros Rainbow Uniforms
- Pittsburgh Pirates collection (above)
- Cubs road power blue with white pinstripe road uniforms
- Padres Brown/Yellow "McDonalds" uniforms

Originally intended as a "Saturday Night Special" jersey in '79, the reaction was so bad that it only got worn once.

Of course, that means that Greg Luzinski had to wear that - yowza!

If that's not bad enough, the Orioles wore these for two games in 1971:

It seems as though the "Twins" script for the Saturday, old-school home alternates matches the "Minnesota" script on the new road uniforms. The regular Home Jerseys, the sleeveless version and the blue alternate all have the current Twins script. I guess they will only wear the "M" hat when wearing the blue home alternate. I wonder if they plan to wear the blue home alternate on the road as well?

As always, that one game with the shorts gets mentioned. :rolleyes:

I still think, that the 1976-1981 jersey would look fine if it wasn't a pullover. Poor Bill Veeck; he anticipated the "retro" fad a couple decades before anyone else, but he went too far retro. That uniform design has never gotten any respect.

Correct. They had the 5 combos you see there, plus black pants/yellow shirt, pinstripe shirt/yellow pants, pinstripe pants/black shirt, pinstripe pants/yellow shirt. I'm pretty sure I saw some of those too during the 70's and early 80's. Plus, if you could multiply that by 2 for those all yellow with black pinstripes, or all black with yellow pinstripes pillbox hats. 18 combo possibilities !

Isn't the "M" styled to be the "W" of Twins upside down? It looks just like it. I wonder if that was designed that way or just an accident? (Just in case you ever saw a player upside down and needed to know what team he was on.)

I agree that the current white pinstripe home uniform and road gray (and even the alternate black top) are great. I certainly want to see the Sox keep them.

A number of teams (e.g., the Brewers, Blue Jays, Phillies and now apparently the Mets) employ an old uniform style as an alternate jersey. Some teams, such as the Blue Jays and Phillies, use alternates whose color schemes differ from their current uniforms. I think it's a great concept and only suggested that the Sox use the home red pinstripe from the Bill Melton/Dick Allen/Wilbur Wood as an alternate home jersey.

"Yea but the White Sox never won anything those years and almost nobody remembers that era anymore....."

Your White Sox PR response....:angry:

I see your point. Still, the 1972 Sox gave the soon to be three time world champion Oakland A's a good run for their money. If Bill Melton hadn't gotten hurt, I still think that Sox team might have won the World Series.

Beyond that, the Sox had a great run from 1951 through 1967 but fell on hard times between '68 and '70. Attendance was not good and, in fact, Bud Selig wanted to buy the Sox and move them to Milwaukee. The Dick Allen/Bill Melton teams in the red pinstripes rejuvenated the franchise when it needed it most. Actually, those teams did more than rejuvenate the franchise; they saved the franchise. Honoring them now with an alternate home uniform would be a great gesture.

The Mets REALLY need to drop black as a color. It's just a hideous look.

Although I have always thought that the Mets shoud wear pinstripes because they look really good in them and plus, they've won both of their world series wearing them. However, I can understand why they wouldn't want to wear pinstripes because of the Yankees.

I really liked the Tom Seaver era Mets uniforms. The Dodger Blue and Giant Orange combo is a nice salute to former NY teams. I agree about the pinstipes, however it's a weak argument considering both the Cubs and SOX wear pinstripes and there is no personality conflict in Chicago.

If not the pinstripes, go with the single piping uniforms that they wear. Anything to get rid of the black/blue hats and the fugly batting helmets.

[T]here will be a change in the shading of all gray jerseys worn by Major League Baseball Teams. We are talking about the color of the gray jersey tops and the pants here, nothing more.”

I wonder what the heck that means. Currently, teams use many different shades of gray; are they all going to be required to use the same shade?Yes. They have had a problem matching the Coolbase material for the jerseys to the pants. While there have been 5 or 6 different shades of gray used the last several years, there has only been one shade of coolbase gray. Of course, many teams had pants that didn't match the jerseys. This is to standardize it.

It took them a couple of years to get the gray to even come close to matching the pants. I think need to either fix or drop the Coolbase. Limiting teams to one shade of gray isn't a solution. The underarm gussetts look ridiculous on pinstriped jerseys. I think they discolor easily, too. In the playoffs I noticed several Phillies whose armpits looked khaki colored instead of gray. It looked horrible. Unless they can get them to look uniform, they need to dump them. This isn't a safety or performance advance, it is a comfort advance. I am not going to feel sorry for a player having to wear a doubleknit jersey in 90 degree weather when players 40 years ago were wearing wool. They can live with it.

I'm more excited that there will be new batting practice hats. I really don't like the current "ear trim" versions (although our SOX hats looks OK with the black ear trim, unlike the fugly Cubs versions with the red trim).

I understand where MLB is going with the gray uniforms. I also agree the coolmax underarm paneled shirts need to go away. The pinstripes look dumb with these underarm patches.

I also noticed a few years ago when the SOX wore the pinstripe home vests that come July/August the white pinstripe vest tops looked brighter than the white pinstripe pants, probably because the pants were worn with all three home tops; pinstripe w/sleeves, pinstripe sleeveless and the black alternate. I also noticed the road grey tops looked a little brighter than the road grey pants.

I hate how often the Sox wear their alternates. They look super badass, but when they were them all the time like they did this past season, they lose their specialty. Their home uniforms and road uniforms are among the best. Utilize them!

And NO, I do NOT want to see alternates and throwbacks evolve to where most teams are wearing a different uniform to each day of the week, or close to it. From a merchandise standpoint, it may make sense, but I think it kills part of the traditional aspect of the game. That said, the merchandise advantage will probably win over vs. the traditionalists.

I live near Tampa/St. Pete and I have no problem with the Marlins changing their name to represent and promote the city they are playing in. The Rays proposed something similar when they had their new ballpark design in front of the state legislature. Although they did not mention changing their name to "The St. Petersburg Rays", the ballpark renditions did have a "St. Petersburg" design mowed into the outfield grass. They also dropped "Tampa Bay" from their road unis as well and now display "Rays".

I think as MLB continues to mature in Florida, teams are starting to draw geographically vs. targeting a wider audience. I like the sound of "Tampa Bay Rays" and although I know their target market is the entire Tampa Bay area (St. Pete, Tampa, Sarasota, Brandon, Lakeland and perhaps even Orlando), I could see them also changing their name to the "Tampa Rays" or "St. Petersburg Rays" in the event they work out a new ballpark deal with one of those two cities.

I think changing the name to Miami Marlins is a small price to pay for getting a new publically financed ballpark.

It fell through. Not enough support even though the plan involved no public tax dollars. I liked the idea that it was a waterfront ballpark, however I think the Marlins have a better plan with a retractable roof. The Rays proposal was for an outdoor ballpark with a retractable, sail-like roof to cover it when it rained. That probably made it a harder sell. Either plan is better than the current enclosed can design of Tropicana.

Sort of like when the White Sox changed to Navy/Red in the late 80s to match the color scheme of the Twins and Indians. The only difference between their Navy Blue/Red Bill hats were the logos.

I don't think the Gator colors would be confused with the Mets (in the Marlins case) as they wear too much black already. As to the Rays, I don't see that color scheme in the AL, but their current home unis look very similar to the Padres home unis.

I'm in the same boat as you in regards to following baseball, but as a kid, the M hat always confused me. There were so many M-hat teams it was hard to keep track of. I would always try and name the teams based off their hats and the Minnesota "M" hat and the Montreal "JB" hat got me every time.

The TC logo is actually the "classic" logo. When the Twins switched to the "M" with the line under it in 1987, it immediately resembled a candy bar logo. I'd like them to stick with both hats, mostly because I believe a team should keep the uniform it wore when winning the World Series.

And the Marlins made between $44 million and $35 million in operating profit from 2006-2008.the marlins make NO money in that facility.

They don't have to. With the money the get through licensing and revenue sharing, if they locked the gates and never let a person in to watch them, they would make a profit.

i'll give loria "some" credit. he DID try to spend to compete in the nl east. they had a high payroll in 2004 and 2005, but didnt reach the playoffs.

i dont like what they're doing, but i cant say i blame them. they have a horrible lease negotiated by a former owner with a conflict of interest.

now, with a new stadium coming, they need to show that the coming financial windfall will be reinvested in the team. if they fail to do that, then hang em high.

Great stuff IMO, more teams need to get back to colorful jerseys.

Except us, of course.

I like some colorful unis (the Expos come to mind) but I don't like the color orange. But I LOVE their new stripped socks.

MLB needs to have 80's night, where all teams that were in existence in the 80's wear their loudest jerseys from that era.

I'm in the same boat as you in regards to following baseball, but as a kid, the M hat always confused me. There were so many M-hat teams it was hard to keep track of. I would always try and name the teams based off their hats and the Minnesota "M" hat and the Montreal "JB" hat got me every time.

I like the TC better for that reason--it's unique.

Not "JB" or "elb", it's an "M"

I think it is an "m" on top, with an "e" for expos and "b" for baseball on the bottom.

I notice from Spring Training photos that the Sox aren't wearing their new BP caps like other teams.

It always looked like "ELB" to me, too.

Definitely returning to simpler, classic designs, but color is still a factor. The amount of teams with alternate/throwback jerseys has to be close to an all-time high.

There is a school of thought that says it is supposed to be ELB for: Expos Le Baseball.

Makes me proud to be a fan of the Tigers. All we need are two simple, classic jerseys. Keeps my wallet thicker too.
