Just one of those things I noticed during the postgame press conferences...

If you look at the MLB Logo, they've flip-flopped the red and blue backgrounds. The red used to be to the right of the batter, and the blue was to the left. For some reason, now the left side is red, and the right side is blue.

I know it's crazy I've noticed this small change, but what's even crazier is why they would even change it. Anyone have any idea?

Maybe an anti-pirating measure? Something simple but significant that they can change late on. I don't even know if there is a merchandising pirating problem, just guessing

My daughter (not quite 2) noticed something about 3 months ago about that logo. When she looked at it she said.."Duck"

Take the ball and bat away and sure enough...there is a duck.:D:

As seen, on a sweet new piece of Sox merchandise/history

On reasoning, I have no clue

It's not a duck. It's Pete Rose.

Same thing... calm and collected on the outside, paddling desperately underneath trying to keep his reputation afloat...

The logo was still as you described the OLD one when seen on TV for tonight's Astro/Cards game.

Do you think that they would change that just so that it is red, white, and blue in that order?

Seems silly that marketing, or whoever, would find that to be a good reason. Wouldn't everybody in America know that baseball is America's pastime?

No, see what happened was the first time you two met, you were on the right side and he was on the left side...so the image is reversed. :cool:

They change it every year it seems. Last year was navy blue / powder blue. in 2000, it was orange.

He's right that this is the first time they've ever put red on the left and blue the right. All the other times it's been blue on the left...

I just bought the hat with the WS logo on the side and the red is on the right, the traditional way. Its weird that they would flip it on their ads.

I just bought one too. So strange they did that. It feels so "unofficial"

I just received this hat as a gift over the weekend. I wish New Era would sell this with the low-crown like the players wear, but its still a great hat.
