    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    The other team just has to remember to swing at the ball that doesn't have the mustache.

    Count me as one that likes those plain white home unis (no pinstripes) with red numbers and letters.

    And the all red hat and helmet. No more of this black bill thing, especially on the helmet.

    Re: On the rules of uniforms

    I was aware of the rule. In 1989 or so I was doing a marketing report where I chose to attempt to revive the struggling Montreal Expos. Part of my plan was remaking the uniforms and logo. Somehow, I stumbled upon that rule and dumped my design that had a baseball in it.

    Of course the professor would never have known, but I felt dirty turning it in so I changed it.

    It wasn't instituted by the Yankees. In the very beginning, uniforms did not have numbers or names. Baseball teams begin using numbers to identify the players by way of the batting order, then later added names. Then added the $*#@%& designated hitter. Okay, that's for another thread.

    Who was the first team to put names on? I used to know this.
    1960 White Sox
