Default Sox Road Uniforms Have Been Changed

Anyone notice the difference?

It is something that has been the exact same since September of 1990.

I am glad someone else noticed that! I was watching the game wondering if I had gone crazy or if anyone else had noticed that. I'm sure this allows for better marketing of the White Sox brand though.

Well, this is the million dollar question. Tonight they wore the black top, and the stripes were there. However, if they took the stripes off the pants, wouldn't it make sense to take the stripes off the sleeves of the grey top also?

It looks like they replaced the black/white tuxedo stripe with a really thin black line. I don't know what the point of changing it would be. It looked fine the way it was.

I'm working on a low-rent screen cap right now. Hold on.

I didn't see the game due to MLB network showing the Dodgers/Padres game, but I saw a couple game plays on the SOX homepage. It looks like the gray pants only have solid black piping now. However, they were wearing the black alternate jerseys which still had the white/gray sleeve trim. I wonder if the road gray jerseys will also just have the black piping on the sleeves. I can't imagine they would have the white/black piping and then not match the pants.

If this is the case, I think they should remove the white/black piping on the sleeves of the black alternates, just like they were when they were originally introduced in 1991. I always thought the black/white trim looked out of place when they wore the black alternates with the home pinstripe pants.

And of course, the before pic... I always hate it when teams switch the uniform they won the World Series in. They should be mandated to keep that uniform forever.

Absolutely. When you're the White Sox, you want to eliminate white in as many places on the uniform as possible.

I refuse to buy a gray road jersey top until they bring back the diamond sock.

It's really troublesome how often we can attach that quote to things this organization does.

And celebrate a red Sox jersey like they did last year.
