Here’s what I don’t like about the Marlins’ new uniforms: the black caps and jerseys. It seems like the folks who design uniforms decided a while back that black is cool and kids were more likely to buy black caps. But guess what? Kids are stupid and black uniforms are generally pretty lame. The Pirates’ caps make sense. Ditto the White Sox. Other teams’ black caps and jerseys? Lame.
Here’s what I do like about the Marlins’ new uniforms: everything else. The color scheme hasn’t been done to death. The font is cool. Moreover, these unis are interesting. They’re not like the Rays’ uniforms, which seem desperate to be ignored. Nor are they like the Dbacks uniforms of the 1990s, which were a desperate cry for help. They’re just good, colorful, fun, interesting uniforms. I’m a fan.
