Top uniforms in MLB
Over on his Uniwatch blog at ESPN.com, Paul Lukas ranked the Major Leagues’ best uniforms and I found myself to be in agreement in some spots, and total disagreement in others (Really, Oakland No. 3?).
Just for fun, here is my quick Top 5:
1. Los Angeles Dodgers: I grew up in New York disliking the Dodgers since they were the Yankees’ regular World Series foe and that they beat New York for the title in 1981. But man, those uniforms are classic. Every time I go to Dodger Stadium, I admire the look that’s simple and clean. Nothing looks better than a white home Dodgers uniform with the blue script and red number on the front.
2. San Francisco Giants: I like the black and orange, what can I say. The cream-ish home uniforms are pretty slick too. I also like that they don’t have names on the backs at home.
3. Detroit Tigers: Gotta love the old-English ‘D’ on the chest. And on those those hats. Thomas Magnum chose the right hat to chase down bad guys while in that Ferrari.
4. New York Yankees: It’s timeless and iconic. If I had a complaint, I’d like to see the Yankees return to the number font they had before the 1970s when Mantle and Maris were in the lineup.
5. Seattle Mariners: An odd choice but I like the blue and white look. I was never one for the yellow and blue and the trident.
Honorable mention: Blue Jays, Red Sox and Royals.
Bottom 3 submitted without comment: Marlins, Brewers and Indians.
