In one of the other uniform threads, we talked about teams that don't wear names on the backs of their jerseys. While some like the concept and others don't, I think the key to making it work is looking at the way the Yankees do it.
I had mentioned in an earlier thread that I thought the Dodgers jerseys looked like they were missing something, without the names being on the back of the jersey, and if you look closely, they are missing something-----the name.
The Yankees position the numbers higher up the jersey as opposed to the Dodgers. The Dodgers position the numbers in the middle of the back, as if a name is going to be added above it. If the Dodgers would move the numbers up the back of the jersey, they would look just fine. The Yankees have got it right, as do the Red Sox, but I guess they've been doing it that way for a long time.
Take a look at the positioning of the numbers of both teams, today, if you are interested.
