Some More Miami Marlins Uniform Design Ideas

Monday, May 2, 2011

It's been awhile since we mulled over potential uniform changes when the Marlins complete their redesign to coincide with the opening of the new stadium next year, but I've seen a few ideas floating around that were worth sharing. UniWatch Blog contributor Jeff Provo came up with this Dolphins-inspired Miami Marlins design that is sure to please fans of teal:

He is not the first to try and coordinate the Marlins with the Dolphins. The striped stirrups are delightful, though I must admit I would not be disappointed if the team decides to forgo teal when they design the new uniforms. In fact, if the Fish were to cop another local team's color scheme, I would much rather it be the University of Miami's orange and green (as I've mentioned previously, they would  become the only major pro sports team with that color scheme). Rock-n-Jocks now sells a U-inspired Marlins hat that would not look bad if you swapped the 'F' for an 'M' (a la the Marlins' current batting-practice caps):

Most likely, though, is that the Miami Marlins uniforms will look nothing like either of these two concepts (especially considering both would clash with the dark blue seats in the new stadium). We're still reading tea leaves at this point, but if I were to do something as ridiculous as bet on baseball uniforms, I'd say we have some orange and dark blue in our future, Marlins fans.

It may not be the best color scheme for an NL East team, but perhaps it will fool some Mets fans into rooting for the Fish...

I wish they would just keep some combination of black/teal. You'd think Loria's affinity for the Yankees would prevent him from drifting too close to Mets colors.

What is wrong with our current uniforms? Our boys look good in those colors. Not to mention that they aren't that common a combination so it truly separates us from all the other teams.

If the Marlins kept the current design/color scheme and simply swapped out the F on the hat for an M, I'd be satisfied. But when teams make a change to uniforms, they tend to overdo it unfortunately...

Teal is definitely out. I am looking forward to the Marlin's new colors having nothing to do with "dolphin’s teal". They should and will want to distance themselves from that stadium, the dolphins and the horrible stadium lease they were saddled with for so many years by Huizenga.

I have seen the new colors and logo-
I believe you guys will hate it!
Its truly embarrassing what your organization does to Major League Baseball!

Sorry for the anonymity...
but I work for a company that has privy to this info.
I'm not ripping on the Marlins, just the decision makers behind the scenes.

Thanks for the update Anonymous. Can you say if it is the Rainbrow-centric we keep hearing about, or is it orange heavy, or something else?
