    I'd actually like to see baseball copy NBA and release a "city" uniform for each team. Not do away with road and home and we don't need 4 uniforms for everyone. But keep the road and home uniforms and add a "city" uniform for everyone and I think that would be pretty cool.

    If they did this what are some of the ideas everyone can think of for their teams? I would like an orange Tigers jersey that says "Motor City" across the chest in the Old English font. With a number on the front as well. And the Tiger-face logo on the sleeve. Or the full-body Tiger that used to be used in the logo, crawling through the Old English D.

    I think I probably speak for some other people on here when I say I have no idea what you're talking about. What exactly is a "city" uniform?

    Like I said in the original post, it would be copying the NBA's idea. They now have a "city" uniform, which is designed for a combination of the team and something significant for the specific city.

    They'd have a home uniform, a road uniform and a "city" uniform, which would be a combination of something for the team and something specific to the city. Look at some of the recent NBA "city" uniforms for an example.

    I honestly am still in the dark about this.
    What, does Detroit have a picture of a rusting old Chevy on the front of its jersey?
    Which NBA teams actually have this, so I don't have to glean 32 websites.?

    Every one does starting this year. Nike is the new jersey manufacturer and they went away with "road", "home" and "alternate" unis and now every team has a road and home (which they now refer to as different names) plus a "statement" jersey (which is like the alternate) and a "city" jersey for something related to their city.

    Ok, I understand now, but I still don't have much to offer. My baseball team is the Phillies so I guess you have a picture of Ben Franklin flying a kite while eating a cheesesteak as he is running up the art museum steps with Stallone. But I'm not really that creative. If only my granddad was still around. He designed the Penn State helmets back in the 30's then was later commissioned to do the design for the Cleveland Browns helmets. The man was brilliant.

    Those were some very interesting icons on those helmets.

    So far as I can tell, it still is nothing more than a marketing ploy to get as many fans to buy stuff as possible. I kind of like the look of some of the NBA jerseys. As for MLB doing it, I think the throwbacks (to the 1920s etc.) are far more interesting. But the Chicago Bulls really missed out on their chance to connect to the stockyards.

    yeah, he also did this gem for Nationwide. And he said it didn't even take him that long to come up with it

    A city uniform? I dunno. I guess the Reds could have a jersey with Jerry Springer's face smiling like an idiot on the sleeve or something?

    I thought the road gray was a nice touch.

    That's about as good of a response as you could give to this absurd idea.
