Uni-forum – Where’s the Smoking Gun

The MLB were planning on wearing a throwback Houston Colt 45s uniform this year to celebrate their 50th anniversary but the MLB requested the team remove the smoking handgun from below the letters.  Do you think the MLB is being too sensitive or is this the right move?  I for one am glad that young kids won’t be thinking about guns while wearing this throwback and playing Call of Duty.

Uni-forum – Atlanta Braves 2012


The boys of summer are back, as pitchers and catchers report to spring training on Feb. 20 and the Atlanta Braves will have a new look for some games in 2012.

The team plans to wear cream-colored uniforms for weekend home games this season. The look is reminiscent of those worn by the Braves during their first two seasons in Atlanta (1966-67). There are four other uniform designs for the Braves.


Back Without Black – Mets celebrate 50th Anniversary


The New York Mets will be celebrating their 50th Anniversary next year and today unveiled their 50th Anniversary patch as well as an updated uniform set… most notably without the black tones that infiltrated their set back in 1998.  They will still have a black uniform that they will be using “sparingly” but all of the other uniforms will return to the classic Mets style.  The patch will be worn on the left sleeve as well as on the back of the cap.  Well done Mets!

The Mets have also created a #50 Fantastic jersey which they will be giving out to one fan at each of the 81 home games.  No player, manager, or coach will be allowed to wear this number in 2012.  Another good branding and marketing move for the club.
