2014 Uniform Change: Boston Red Sox Go Gold

In what has now become expected, the reigning World Series Champion wears gold in their first game of the season, which is also (usually) the ring ceremony. Today in their home opener, the Red Sox will don hats with a gold outlined B and jerseys with a gold outlined “Red Sox”. The picture below is from the Boston twitter account:

I’m not really a fan, but if the Mets won the World Series, then I would be a fan of this. I guess you can put this in the bucket of the Red Sox have won the World Series three times while I’ve been alive and the Mets have made the playoffs three times.
 

2014 Uniform Changes: Tampa Bay Rays Celtic BP

The Rays also have the Celtic BP Jersey, so I thought it would be nice to see them in green again:

Except not. Because green does not work with the Rays mark and color set.

2014 Uniform Changes: Mariners Celtic BP Jersey

Seattle joins the St. Patrick’s day celebration with their Celtic BP:

Seattle had a good shot at looking good in this jersey because they have green in their color set, granted it is more forest and less kelly. This doesn’t look bad. The only adjustment I would make is either make “Mariners” white so it matches the under panels, or make the under panels silver.

2014 Uniform Change: Pirates Celtic BP Jersey

The Pirates are other PA team to don a Celtic BP Jersey:

The Pirates Jersey suffers from the same problem that a lot of the jerseys in this series have. Too many colors. Black and Yellow don’t go well with white and green.

2014 Uniform Changes: Phillies Celtic BP Jersey

The Phillies are also joining the crew of Celtic BP Jerseys:

I’m not a fan, and it’s not just because I’m a Mets fan. If it was just a Red Phillies, and stars were also red, then it would look fine, not great but passable. They should have changed the color scheme to orange. The jersey would look a lot cleaner.

2014 Uniform Change: New York Mets Celtic BP Jersey

I know Mets fans are all over their uniform news, and this has been known for a few weeks now, but for some reason I decided to do this article series in alphabetical order, so here are the Mets:

The Mets are the only team to really change the front script of the jersey for this going with the white inside and the orange outline. It was a smart move. It looks more St. Patrick’s Day-ish.

2014 Uniform Change: Brewers Celtic BP Jersey

The Brewers have also joined the Celtic BP Jersey parade:

I’m not a fan of this one. The other colors on the Brewer’s logo don’t pop on a green Jersey. I know they had to use their BP font on the front, but if they used some of the other scripts, it may have looked a lot better.

2014 Uniform Change: Dodgers Celtic BP Jersey

I mentioned this Jersey yesterday, and then realized that I never actually showed it. Anyway, the Dodgers have a BP Jersey as well for St. Patrick’s Day:

It looks good! For exact reason that we said yesterday, only have a white front. Although, the red numbers on the front wouldn’t look bad either and set it apart from some of other celtic BP’s.

2014 Uniform Changes: Kansas City Royals Celtic BP

Continuing our journey through the St. Patrick’s day Celtic Jerseys, the Royals have added a green BP to their authentic set:

Like some of the other BP’s (Dodgers, Reds), since the font on the front is only white, it doesn’t look that bad because it matches.

2014 Uniform Change: Detroit Tigers Celtic BP Jersey

The Tigers are one of the 15 teams wearing Celtic BP Jerseys on St. Patrick’s day this year. Their BP came out better than most:

They benefit from having a BP template that has only white writing on it, thus it goes with the jersey. It would have been interesting to see the orange D on this jersey. That also would have looked nice.
