This week, Chris and Paul talk about the Red Sox’s new yellow “City Connect” uniforms, plus they have the second and concluding part of their interview with Dodgers senior design director Ross Yoshida.
In addition, they discuss the situation regarding the 2021 MLB All-Star Game patch now that the game has been relocated from Atlanta to Colorado, plus the question of the week and more.
Here are photos and links regarding some of the things discussed in this episode, in the rough order that they come up:
- Here’s a look at the Red Sox’s new “City Connect” uniform (along with Chris’s and Paul’s articles about them).
- Here’s a shot of the 1930s throwbacks that the Eagles wore for one game in 2007, featuring a color combo very similar to the new Bosox uni.
- Here’s look at the All-Star Game patch that the Braves wore for their first game of the season, followed by a photo showing how they covered up the patch after MLB announced that the game would not be played in Atlanta due to Georgia’s new voting laws.
- Here’s a look at the small rear-cap memorials that the Braves have been wearing for Henry Aaron and Phil Niekro during the first week of the season. Now that they’re not wearing the All-Star Game patch, maybe they’ll scrap these cap memorials and give Aaron and Niekro sleeve memorials instead.
- Here’s a look at the Dodgers’ road jersey with blue buttons, and here’s the same design with grey buttons.
- Here’s a good look at the Dodgers’ raised/3D batting helmet logo. They were the first time to wear this type of helmet mark.
- Here’s a shot from the 1999 MLB Style Guide, showing the contrast-sleeve jersey that the Dodgers were supposedly going to wear that season, and then a photo of a prototype of that jersey (the design was never worn on the field).
- Here’s the gold-accented uniform that the Dodgers will be wearing for their home opener on April 9.
- Here’s a look at the 1970s Reds — the Big Red Machine — in their classic 1970s pullovers, followed by a shot of the Padres wearing pullover throwbacks that are much baggier than Paul would prefer.
