    upgrade to remove that weird shoulder pattern they had before. those actually clean up quite nicely. need to go back to purple though. every year they don't do that is a disservice to the fans

    I'm glad they dropped that shoulder pattern. It looked like the barbershop quartet era.

    Our new plainer uni's look sharp, which makes them distinctive in a very positive way.
    The Sedona Red or Black make that happen.

    Modern-traditional! A million times better than fifty years ago, when the home uni's
    looked like flannel that were made to hide body shape. And the road uni's looked
    like they slept in them before coming to the ballpark. It was all, uh, 'uniform'. :)

    I guess it still is. Because the whole team dresses identically, except for pants length
    and shoes. And glove color.

    'Looking sharp, D-backs! I hope the modern-traditional look spills over to the mentality
    of our daily batting orders and rotations.

    "Which of two (or three) positions am I playing today?" "How many times will I shift
    positions during a game?" Am I a starter or a sub?" "Who will I be playing alongside?"

    P.S.: Isn't every home "Throwback Thursday" game a tribute to the Purple uniforms?

    It's an improvement, but I would ditch "D-Backs" and just go with the "A" like the one on the black jersey.

    And the word is that they won't be wearing the throwbacks regularly, which is a huge minus. I'm one of the "bring back the purple" fans.

    I will forever love the darker gray with teal highlights. Wish this new gray was darker and had some teal. I agree that it’s good the shoulder stuff got left out, much more clean looking.

    I don't like dumping the Sedona Red caps.
