Re: New Uniforms
Got home from RedsFest a bit ago. The new uniforms are absolutely beautiful. And I can be a tough critic. they're quite retro, but in a good way...I think these are uniforms that other teams will be jealous of. The distinguishing feature, as others have noted, really is the font. Greg Rhodes said that the font was created for the Reds and is totally unique in baseball.
The white home uniforms are the best I think -- very simple, white trim, red piping down the legs, so the lettering, the numbers and Mr. Red really stand out.
Denorfia got a huge round of applause by the way. Very funny.
Here are some pictures taken by yours truly, the worst photographer in the world. Coffey, who modeled the away uniform, ran down the runway (of course) so I didn't get a good picture of him. Please note Ryan freel, who makes even this uniform look sloppy. Awesome. I'm also throwing in a photo of one of the Reds cars, so you can see that the font has already been implemented all over the place.
I have many, many, many things to say about the rest of the fashion show but I'll save them for the general thread.
There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.
