I think its kinda nice looking, but red just doesnt fit with the Black and yellow that all pitt teams use

Yea...that's hideous. Why even throw red into the Pirates color scheme? It hasn't been in it since like, the 1930s.

Whoever came up with this ought to be keelhauled.

LOL... they're no longer the manly-man Bucs that were the swashbuckling Pirates. They're now the Pittsburgh Parking Valets!

The Penguins already broke that mold by going with the gold. I don't consider this yellow and black.

That said, here we have a team that could actually look good in a black alternate (because black is actually a part of their color scheme) and they go with red instead...this is worse than the Mets', Blue Jays' and Royals' black alternates.

Well, I live with a born and raised Pittsburgh girl, and there's actually some meaning behind this. In "Pittsburgh-ese", the term Redd Up means to clean up, such as the saying, "Yinz get in there and redd up the living room."

Their former mayor that passed away had an initiative for the city in preparation for the All Star game that was called "Redd up downtown".

Now, in honor of him, they're doing a "redd up the Bucs" campaign.

That's why the red unis made an appearance.

Now that I think of it, that's an entirely feasible name for a real pirate...

Did any teams besides the Pirates, Reds, and Dbacks make uniform changes? Seriously though, the Pirates need to get rid of the current "Pirate face" logo and go back to the old-fashioned Pirate.

Is the one on the far right their spring training/batting practice cap?

the pens isnt exactly yellow, but it still fits much better than red

Still gotta say that I saw worse uniforms in Japan. Try lemon yellow or my favorite pink on black. I also recall a team wearing baby blue with white piping.
