Outside The Confines: The ugliest jerseys in baseball?

“All-Stars” these ain’t.

MLB: Cincinnati Reds at Colorado Rockies Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

I thought, back in 2019, that the solid black and solid white jerseys for the Players’ Weekend were the worst uniforms I’d ever seen. I don’t mean ever because there have been some regular-season gems a few teams would love to forget, but in terms of special edition or one-off jerseys, those Players’ Weekend ones were a poorly thought out mess. The National League players memorably blended right in with the umpires in a confounding infield to say the least.

Well, MLB has outdone itself this week, unveiling the 2021 MLB All-Star Game jerseys on Thursday, and, they’re bad. They’d be fine if they were uniforms for soccer, or polo, perhaps. Maybe if one were to slap a logo for Tommy Hilfiger on it there might be some semblance of reason. But instead, they’re just a baffling design in terms of baseball jerseys.

What’s worse, instead of wearing their standard team jerseys, these will be worn in-game for the first time ever.

Have a look.

They just don’t make any sense to me. The floral print on the sleeve doesn’t exactly scream “Rockies” to me, and the design is just so simple it fails to gain any kind of excitement.

What do you think of the new jerseys?
