    There's got to be something in the CBA that can keep these things from seeing the light of day, right?

    It's even worse that the team's new uniforms, even the home ones, will say "Texas" across the front. You should have the team nickname or a logo (like the Yankees' NY) on your home unis and the city or state of the club on the front of your road unis.

    And yeah, those new batting helmets are hideous.

    Looks like something you'd expect to see Oregon's baseball team wearing.

    Seriously, they have a month to order some blue fucking helmets. There's still time to avoid a season of ridicule. Maybe they'll wise up after becoming the funniest thing in Arizona since Wile E. Coyote.

    And yes, "Texas" on the home jerseys is ridiculous. Even more ridiculous is that they went through a redesign but did not drop black from the color scheme, even though the black uni fad is over a decade past.

    At least they're going to break out the red jerseys again, not seen since, well, yours truly was digging in at the plate. :)

    Those helmets look like something you'd see on Tron.

    I guess we can let the girls' 16U travel team know we found their equipment bags.

    Just a thought, but those old late '70s'-early '80s White Sox unis might be the last time that the name of a city or state was worn on the home jerseys until the Rangers this upcoming season.

    The Mets started this crap when they went with the two-tone helmets. Stuff like this kills me. I am as old school as it comes with uniforms. Guys I play soccer with call me the uniform nazi because I have been known to go off on people for wearing the wrong socks. I went absolutely ape shit on a guy once when he cut the sleeves off his jersey.

    As a gag one year for my birthday, which happened to be a game day, someone bought me a pair of wacky tie-dyed socks and made me grudgingly wear them just because they knew it would annoy the hell out of me knowing I was the guy out of uniform.
