    Was the change due in any way to them no longer having the MD, DC, VA, WV states all to themselves, since the Nats are now in DC? I guess this move was meant to make Baltimore distinctive, since the region's baseball fans now have a choice.

    Anyone agree or disagree?

    do you happen to know the circumstances of these particular jersies being worn?
    oakland used to have 6 or 7 or 8 uni combos back in the day.
    It's their 1968 home jersey, worn as part of their 40th anniversary in Oakland.

    Believe it or not, aside from the number, that's EXACTLY how I thought it would look.

    I don't understand this thing with the Phillies.

    From my point of view, the Phillies have always had their city name on their jerseys; their nickname is their city name. If the guy's birth cert says "Alexander," addressing him as "Al" is still calling him by name.

    Ugh. That prototype jersey is very ugly. I would be ashamed to wear that thing in public.

    Now the Blue Jays need to go back to their 1980's uniforms because those current ones are horrible.

    Found this guy wearing a prototype (from uniwatchblog)

    Great decision to bring back the city name for the road jersey. This has been a big issue among us Baltimore fans, because it's one of the few things that fans have left in the days of free agency and teams controlled by multi-millionaires. It does say, as well, that the much-hated owner Peter Angelos is LISTENING to Orioles President Andy McPhail.

    I would love to see the whole home/road uniform of the '60s come back... the cartoon bird, "Baltimore" on the road uniform, the orange socks with black and white stripes, but I don't expect this will happen. I do think the O's currently have the best uniform they've had ever since I've been a fan (1981).

    When the Cubs wear their alternate solid Blue unis (and complete the "softball team look") they too have the team name on the road unis instead of "Chicago".

    Very true. Heh.

    True. Also there's no confusion as to where the Phillies would play.

    That, and team name and town are close to identical anyway with the Phils.
