Because It’s Never Too Early to Learn How to Do Things Right

child_baseball_baby_bunting.JPG

Several people have contributed good info about the College World Series, but I’m gonna save that until tomorrow or Thursday. Today we’re going to look back a bit further than college baseball — all the way back to Little League.

That topic was inspired by a note I got last week from reader Wally Steidley, who said he coached Little League in Wylie, Texas. “My assistant coach and I are huge fans of Uni Watch,” he wrote, “so we took it upon ourselves to spend a little extra and get our boys outfitted like real baseball players. We have some limitations from the league but put together a pretty nice combo, including stirrups and sanitary socks. All the other teams went with the one-color soccer sock, so we really stood out as the finest uni’ed team in the entire league.”

Cool, I thought — teach em young and all that. So when Steidley offered to send me some photos, I said, “Sure, let’s have em.” That’s when I discovered that he’d left out one pertinent detail. He hadn’t just dressed up his team like real ballplayers — he’d dressed them as one of history’s most idiosyncratic teams: the A’s. Here’s Steidleys rundown:

We had some challenges getting the kids to wear everything correctly, but it was worth it, as everyone in the league noticed our classic stirrups and gold sanitary socks. We did have to explain the stirrup and how to wear them to the kids, but the parents thought it was a cool look, so they helped us out by requiring that they wear them correctly. You will also note the white cleats, which were difficult to find, but we talked the parents into them.

The gold belts were used because last year we were the Pirates, and the parents didn’t want to have to buy more belts. I gave in because my assistant coach and I had already purchased helmets, with MLB sticker packs, and fronted the money for the socks and stirrups. This is something we’ll be able to fix with next year’s team.

Amazing. So now there’s a bunch of nine-year-olds in Texas who think “real” ballplayers wear yellow sanitaries and white cleats. That should warp their little minds quite nicely. Still, Steidley’s devotion to uniform protocol is admirable. After Jason Giambi arranges to have Bud Selig bumped off, could we maybe get Steidley in line to take over the Commissioner’s chair?

Membership Update: I’ve added about two dozen more rear-card designs to the membership roster and to the card gallery (including, as you can see at right, our first referee-based design). My continued thanks to all who’ve joined.

Remember that members get three bonus entries in this week’s raffle, which is for a copy of the 2001 MLB Style Guide. If you haven’t already entered, send an e-mail to uniraffle at earthlink dot net.

Uni Watch News Ticker: One of the San Diego Union-Tribune columnists wrote a bit of a Padres uniform manifesto yesterday (with thanks to Josh Berliner). And a St. Looie columnist has weighed in on the suits-on-the-sidelines situation (with thanks to Luke Pellegra). Good photo here (helpfully provided by Tom Konecny of the Toledo Mud Hens’ uni-laundering scene. The accompanying article isn’t really about uniforms, though. One last Father’s Day oddity: Ray Durham wore one of those light blue wristbands on his head during BP (with thanks to Bosox blogger Jere). Ehan Lewis notes that the NFL recently held its annual NFL Softball Challenge event. If you’ve always wanted to see Jeff Lurie swinging a bat (among other sights), a full gallery of pics is available here. Nice find by Ethan Rowley, who came up with this portrait of Cardinals greats, which functions as a de facto timeline of the team’s uniform. According to this article (forwarded by Wes Johnson), “[Minnesota] Gophers football coach Tim Brewster made it clear that there will be only one change in the team’s uniforms this fall: the letter ‘M’ on the helmets will be much bigger.” Which means it’ll look even more like an upside-down W than it already does. Excellent slide-show essay on the history of — and problems with — U.S. soccer uniforms here. Latest player spotted wearing Oakley Thumps during BP: Bartolo Colon (great shot by Zach Gibson). Member Eric Bonus has scanned and uploaded an excellent 1987 article about hockey uniform numbers. More really disturbing Chris Cooley hot pants pics here. Carlos Delgado went high-cuffed last night, and it was a thing of beauty. Take note, class: His pants didn’t break right at the knees but, rather, just slightly down the shins. This is exactly — exactly — how it should be done. Such a splendid example of the form that I’m willing to overlook the lack of stirrups. Pitt’s new secondary logo has been leaked. Michael Maurino works for the single-A Dunedin Blue Jays and recently attended the Florida State League All-Star Game, where the teams wore East and West jerseys that almost make the Pro Bowl look good by comparison — especially when you factor in the number font — yeesh. The guy wearing double-zero in that last photo is Francisco Cervelli of the Tampa Yankees, who normally wears 34, but that was taken by Omar Malave, who managed the West team. Anyone know which other minor leagues use generic all-star unis instead of letting the players wear their regular team attire? … The Angels are giving away an item I’ve never seen before: wristbands with a built-in watch. If you haven’t seen it already, check out the super-cool animated Watch Your Back ad, now running near the top of the right column.

    You know what’s awesome? Check out that first pic of the little kids. Look at the first baseman — dude’s not even watching. That ball will be delivered in less than a second, and he’s probably looking at rocks or bugs or something. Sweeeet.

  • Dwight | June 19, 2007 at 9:23 am |

    Wally Steidley should be named coach of the year based on uniform alone. My 8 year old son was the ONLY kid in his little league who wore stirrups in the season, and many people thought it was a great thing to see.
    Is their a stirrup revolution beginning also, based on what were seeing in the CWS?

  • Brady | June 19, 2007 at 9:23 am |

    I don’t have a pic (it’s on the front page of the Sports Section here in KC, but it’s not on the internet version), but Presdient Bush got a nice set of swim tights from the Auburn girls team (looks like they might fit a child – a small child). Be interesting to see him don those….

  • Mike V | June 19, 2007 at 9:27 am |

    Those kids look sharp, if and when I have a kid, i only hope he will be in such a well dressed league, or just team. I say wearing stirrups not only makes the kid/team look great, it gives them an edge because they will have more self confidence because they look so much better than the other team. Just a theory. Maybe the first baseman isn’t looking at bugs or dirt, i think he is admiring his fine looking duds. However, this distraction could blow holes in my theory, meaning, looking so good can draw your attention away from the game because you can’t stop thinking about how sharp you look.

    Notes (but unfortunately no pics) from last nights Brewer game:

    Giants’ Luis Figueroa (called up yesterday) pinch-hit and had no name on his jersey.

    There were game-worn jerseys for sale in the Fan Zone and I noticed that the home white and road gray had names directly sewn on, but the navy alts had name plates. From internet photos I could find it’s kind of tough to tell.

    Polish Sausage was wearing faux stirrups for the Sausage Race. Next time I’ll bring my camera.

    One problem with that Cardinals Greats photo: Bob Gibson is smiling. That never happened in real life.

    And at the College World Series, it was nice to see that Oregon State hasn’t done with its home uniforms what it did with its road uniforms. Last year, the Beavers wore the same uniform design (“Beavers” in the oldish-looking font that you see everywhere) on all three jerseys (white, gray, and the third jersey, which I don’t remember if it was black or orange). For some reason, the Beavers have foolishly jettisoned the classic-looking jersey on the road. At least they retained the old whites.

  • Matt B | June 19, 2007 at 10:36 am |

    Heehee, W getting visits from Madison and Berkeley delegations on the same day. How much tongue-biting was going on?

    From today’s Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
    As a tribute to [rookie pitcher] Gallardo’s Mexican heritage, equipment manager Tony Migliaccio issued him uniform No. 49, worn with distinction by Teddy Higuera in the late 1980s. Gallardo never met Higuera but had spoken with him on the telephone, and appreciated the gesture.

    Wow. Teddy Higuera.

  • My name is not Earl | June 19, 2007 at 10:38 am |

    There’s an advertisement in this past week’s Sports Illustrated (and thankfully, the Mets didn’t wear black on the cover) profiling the history of Tommy John surgery. There’s a picture of Tommy from what looks like the early part of his stint with the Yankees. I can’t tell if those stirrups are real or fake. I think they’re fake, but I can’t say for sure. What’s everyone’s take? And if this has been covered already, Paul, please delete!

    I was at Pitt from 2000 to 2003, when I got there they were just finishing changing the over to Notre Dame’s colors. Just think of all of the thing at your college or high school that were painted the school colors, and try to imagine repainting them. It’s a massive (and expensive) undertaking. They had to repain all the trucks, and the pool, the street signs had to be changed. Pretty much every thing had to be repainted, and it took them about five years to get it all done.

    Now everybody wants to switch back. Somebody at the office of physical plant is going to cry.

    The new logo looks similar to the 1966-1972 logo that you can see on Chris Creamers logo page, the links to the page never work. Why is that?

    I have to say, it looks better than their previous alternate, which with the jagged shading hardly resembled anything. At least this looks like some kind of animal. Eventually, they may even create a logo that looks like a panther! Baby steps.

    But who am I to talk when when my team’s mascot is a fuzzy orange ball in a hat.

    i actually thought of that right away…

    when i was in little league, teams were designated by the color stirrups, not shirts. it was less expensive for the league to buy 15 pairs of 4 different color stirrups that could be reused year after year, than to buy different t shirts on a yearly basis.

    every player wore white pants and a brown shirt with the name of the jr baseball association on the front. no numbers.

    That is a Majestic jersey, so it is not the actual maker of the original. I’ve seen other players in this style, their attention to detail is a little suspect; they put a name on the back of the Clemente version of that product, and the colors were off. So I would check the jersey from the season this purports to “throwback to before I bought it. However, the jersey material is close, and everything is swen on, but not with nearly the quality or attention to detail of a Mitchel & Ness throwback.

    It looks alright, most people won’t know the difference, but for my $129, I would get something else.

    Back in the 1980’s the Phillies used to give away a wristband-watch combo. The wristband was made of some sort of cheap nylon and the watch battery barely lasted the ride home. To change the watch battery you had to basically destroy the wristband. Still, as a kid, it was pretty cool to wear one of those to school.

    Compare it to the Mitchel & Ness version of the same jersey. The white shading around the cardinals logo gives it away.

    Also, aren’t these kids only nine or so? If it’s their first year in baseball, and they’re definitely going to need new cleats the next season, I guess convincing the people who don’t already have shoes to get white ones isn’t that bad. I’m assuming that if a kid played last year with black shoes he could keep them, right?

    And Todd, every team’s shirts were the same color!? And no numbers on the back? Saving money is good, but you need to know who’s on what team. Did you at least have different-colored caps?

    My first year in little league, they gave us T-shirts (to keep) with no numbers on the backs; instead there was an ad for a bank. It looked ridiculous. Fortunately the next year they put numbers on the back, and perhaps as a cost-saving measure, had nothing at all on the front. I’d much rather have a blank T-shirt front than a shirt with a bank ad where the number belongs!

    I snapped up a tee shirt with this logo about two months ago at a Target store. I think it’s a great improvement over the previous one. Still…. wish we had something that really looked like a “felis concolor”, as they have at BYU, Houston, and that cow college in Central Pa.

    I’d hate to be picky, but check out the batting helmet of the little league Athletics team featured in the article (the link with the word “classic.”) The helmet is off. With the white ‘A’s,’ the green helmet should have had its brim painted yellow, or the solid green helmets should have the yellow decal. Overall, a great effort.

    Um, Rick Ankiel is making a return to the majors in a quick way. He just his his 19th homerun for the Redbirds the other night, leading the team in that category, and is hitting with a .286 average. His biggest flaw so far is that he only has 12 walks in 217 at-bats. His OBP and AVG could be much higher if he simply stopped whiffing at bad pitches. He is a decent outfielder as well.

Maybe they live in some sort of lily white surburb of affluence, but making parents buy new cleats for their kids because their coach wants to make them look like the real thing, give me a break.[/quote]

    i actually thought of that right away…

    when i was in little league, teams were designated by the color stirrups, not shirts. it was less expensive for the league to buy 15 pairs of 4 different color stirrups that could be reused year after year, than to buy different t shirts on a yearly basis.

    every player wore white pants and a brown shirt with the name of the jr baseball association on the front. no numbers.

    you had the option to get a new shirt every year, and some did, however my parents philosophy was, you have the shirt already, if you want a new one, you can buy one with youre own money.

    i can only imagine what they would have said about the shoes. they would have let me be the only kid with black shoes on a team full of white, im sure…[/quote]

    Just because your little league sucked, don’t take it out on these kids[/quote]

    umm, what? i made no mention of the kids, or their league. i gave a description of my experience in a similar circumstance. the only mention of the prior post even were my initial thoughts of the parental reaction for uniform requirements outside of what was issued to each player. not quite sure where the kid-bashing came into play.

    I bought my son stirrups for his little league this season (see here: http://www.uniwatchb...)
    Unfortunately, halfway through the season he decided that he didnt want to be different than all the other kids so he went back to the one color look. Thats the way it is with a 9 year old. Sometimes he was sloppy, untucked shirt, leg showing between sock and pant, but at least he wore ’em high.
    In my day, all the kids got the same flannel uniform which we had to return at the end of the season. The only difference between the teams were hat color and stirrup color. Since it was the ’70’s, we all had our moms sew in a little elastic so we could stretch ’em high.

  • Mr. Met | June 19, 2007 at 2:16 pm |

    Wow, where to begin with the putridness of this:

    (1) The Mets did not use this “New York” script until 1987
    (2) The Mets did not use the white outlines on the racing stripes until 1987
    (3) The name on the back is missing the orange outline.
    (4) The number font is all wrong.

    The Mets might also have been using nameplates at this time, but I’m too lazy to double check.

    All in all, how can this thing cost $199 when it was never worn by Tom Seaver? M&N really screwed the pooch on this one.

    That’s Majestic (not Mitchell and Ness), and their replicas are putrid. Their fonts are too universal. For baseball jerseys, spring for authentics if you can because they are the least f*cked up. Personally, I concentrate on hats because they are cheaper, consistently better (American Needle gets it right, as does New Era when they don’t go off on “fashion” tangents), and you probably already have a nice shirt that will go well with your new hat.

    I recently sat behind the owner of the Chiefs on a flight from Philly to Las Vegas. The guy got so tanked he was ridiculously loud and obnoxious during the entire time.

    And of course, he didn’t hesitate telling everybody around him that he was the owner of an ECHL franchise, which is pretty cool.. I guess.

    I was hoping for some white trim/stripe going horizontally across the bottom of the jersey…I dont think I’m going to like the lack of horizontal stripes on these new jerseys that’ll be coming out across the league. But overall…I can definitely get used to these!

    If you zoom, you can see it’s indeed the old NHL colors, but the ‘NHL’ is reading upwards.[/quote]

    The NHL logo on the color is probably still silver, it’s just harder to tell because jpeg compression does a number on small details. The pixelation causes colors the blend together to lower the overall quality of the image to save some space. Also, I’d bet the jersey itself is red and blue, just a victim of a low quality picture.

    Auburn isn’t immune to the crap-secondary logo bug, and the bug has already injected it’s venom. As recent as the late 90’s, this was introduced. Now, while I personally do not fancy this logo (…for it’s generic, cookie-cutteredness as well as manufactures recently giving it precedence over this, which is awful), I’ve accepted that it’s not going to go away anytime soon. However, the jack’ that designed the tiger face logo also came up with this, a tiger-striped turd nugget, around the same time.[/quote]

    the thing is you don’t mess with tradition, that interlocked au logo is great and will always be the auburn symbol. the tiger logo is ok, but you can’t say the au logo that has been there forever is awful. war eagle!

    Obviously, the Royals. They’re uniforms and just so classy and awesome, and they’re the closest team to where I live, and a favorite player from my favorite college plays third base there, and even though i totally love and respect their unis, I just can’t get myself to like them. Although, just describing them to you might have just made me a fan. That’s messed up.

    That’s an excellent question. And while I don’t have a definitive answer, I can say that I have no desire to buy a Nats jersey even though I live in DC because I really really really hate the gold shading they seem to love on their jerseys. I even bought a “DC” BP mesh hat their first year, but they have that atrocious gold on the letters. I don’t like wearing the hat unless I’m at a game. I can’t wear it proudly like a Boston “B” or a New York “NY.” I guess I could just get a “W” hat…

    Great article by Tim Kurkijan on ESPN today…says that Angelos WILL eventually sell to Ripken…Cal has the desire and the ownership group behind him to pull off the purchase. How great would THAT be? Then we might actually see Baltimore back on the jersey (the way it was in Cal Sr’s day)…and the cartoon bird back on the hat!

    Looks like a pissed off sea otter[/quote]

    I was at Pitt from 2000 to 2003, when I got there they were just finishing changing the over to Notre Dame’s colors. Just think of all of the thing at your college or high school that were painted the school colors, and try to imagine repainting them. It’s a massive (and expensive) undertaking. They had to repain all the trucks, and the pool, the street signs had to be changed. Pretty much every thing had to be repainted, and it took them about five years to get it all done.

    Now everybody wants to switch back. Somebody at the office of physical plant is going to cry.

    The new logo looks similar to the 1966-1972 logo that you can see on Chris Creamers logo page, the links to the page never work. Why is that?[/quote]

    I’m a current Pitt student, and I think it’s safe to say that the vast majority of students here want to go back to the old “Pitt script” with the old colors. All of the players were raving about the throwbacks they wore against YSU in 2005 – Tyler Palko said he wished they could’ve worn them for the rest of the season.

    I really thought the old colors were going to make a comeback soon. The Pitt Pathfinders’ recently switched over to them, and the Pitt Shop has been selling a lot of throwback merchandise.

    My favorite Pitt secondary logo was the original one from 1909, which resembled the statue outside the WPU. This new one looks like a deformed pit bull.

  • Brendan | June 19, 2007 at 6:06 pm |

    I bought my son stirrups for his little league this season (see here: http://www.uniwatchb…)
    Unfortunately, halfway through the season he decided that he didnt want to be different than all the other kids so he went back to the one color look. Thats the way it is with a 9 year old. Sometimes he was sloppy, untucked shirt, leg showing between sock and pant, but at least he wore ‘em high.

    Alan, have you considered telling the lad “tough, I don’t care that your friends are slobs, but any son of mine will look good by G*d.”? It worked with my spawn, though they of course whined a bit but now they are certainly the best put together on the field and I don’t need to say a thing.

    Nah, it makes sense. I think a lot of people on here were kids in the ’70s and early ’80s… so we like the cartoonish colors often used.

    With the Reds coming here to play the M’s this weekend, there has obviously been a lot of talk about Griffey’s first trip back to Seattle since he was traded.
    This led to an interesting picture in the Seattle Times today. According to the paper, this was from July 1987 and his first appearance at the Kingdome. What’s is interesting is that the Mariners changed their jerseys around that time, and according to the dressed to the nines database, 1987 was the first year without the pitchfork logo. Obviously that is wrong and they wore them in 1987 and then changed in 1988. At least that’s my guess…

    Delgado is high cuffed again, although he is struggling to reach base like every other Met, he is hitting the ball well. Today they are wearing black so his black socks match better, although they are still black.

    I’d like to defend the Little League first baseman who’s looking down. These kids are at the age where they know to pay attention–especially the kid they put at first. I’d say this pic is from warm-ups before the inning starts. Right after “balls in, comin’ down!” In other words, the first baseman has already thrown his final practice grounder, flipped the ball to the dugout, and is now waiting out that last warmup pitch which will be thrown and sent down to second before being thrown around the infield.

  • jere | June 19, 2007 at 8:59 pm |

    Also, the umpire’s not in ready position either, another sign this isn’t a live pitch. And about the rubber–as a former LL pitcher, I remember there was usually a huge hole in front of the rubber. You never really pushed off the rubber as much as the wall of dirt butting up against it…

    [quote comment=”104812″][quote comment=”104801″]There has been a lot of Oriole chatter recently. I always liked this hat the best. I think the simpler more “cartoony” design translates best on to a ball hat. I think that the modern hat is trying to do too much.

    Anyway, along the same topic, is there any team whose uniforms you like so much you wish you were a fan of the team? I would put the Baltimore Orioles on that list[/quote]

    I agree on the Orioles except I always liked this hat. I also think these are great uniforms, although I’d be ashamed to claim loyalty to the team. I think this is a great number font also. I seem to have a lot of opinions, and that’s just baseball. I’m afraid this post will be eaten.[/quote]

    I’ve pretty much liked every alternate jersey made–from the D’Backs purples to the Rangers Liberty’s (blue AND white) to the Browns orange, I love almost all of them. But the Bruins “Pooh Bear” jersey has always been my favorite jersey (of any kind) of all time, even though I couldn’t give a rat’s patoot about the Bruins.
    Also, as a die-hard Avs fan, it pains me to say that I find the Red Wings whites to be the finest regular jerseys in sports. In the MLB, I would pick Detroit (and I really hope that one day they come out with a “reverse-color” alt jersey: navy blue body with white “D” and white piping.) NFL: Patriots silver. NBA: loved the Nets grey and the Dallas green. International: Sweden’s hockey yellow.

    I like the Oriole Bird on the hats…but could live without the tri-color hat. I want the cartoon bird on a black hat with an orange bill…and Baltimore on the chest…and all’s good![/quote]

    Yet another missed opportunity to employ an infinite regression. Other examples include the Miami Dolphins (notice the helmet on the dolphin) and the Pittsburgh Penguins (if the skating penguin were to have a sweater on), and hmmm…any others? Infinite regressions are AWESOME!

    [quote comment=”104682″][quote comment=”104680″]The University of Pittsburgh just sent an email to Panther Club members confirming what Paul noted in today’s notes, above.

    A new, stylized panther-head logo replaces the jaggedy-edged “Dino-Cat” mark introduced in 1997.

    I snapped up a tee shirt with this logo about two months ago at a Target store. I think it’s a great improvement over the previous one. Still…. wish we had something that really looked like a “felis concolor”, as they have at BYU, Houston, and that cow college in Central Pa.[/quote]

    48-14[/quote]
    I think there are some more recent figures here, such as 12-0 and 91-54.

    But seriously, as a Pitt student, that logo is absolutely terrible. When is Jeff Long going to learn that the majority of current students, players, coaches and alumni want the script? I don’t care how much it costs to repaint/redo everything; we just raised a billion dollars. If we can afford to clean off 70 years of grime from the centerpiece of our campus, we can afford to repaint the blue and gold all over campus.

    Nice looking A’s uni on the Little Leaguers. We went a different direction with the team I coach in Burlington, NC (7-8 year old coach pitch) – replica Homestead Grays unis with shortened pants & piping around the jersey placket & neck. We did OK last year (8-4, 2nd in the league) with t-shirt jerseys most other teams, but the unis have come through for us this year as we’re 8-1 so far. We’re even in the midst of a friendly uniform arms race, as another team in our division has worn letter-perfect replicas of an Elon University uni the past few years.

    I guess no one mentioned this because they didnt want to be Captain Obvious, but I’ll take that one on.

    We’re now on “tribute watch” in Bloomington for Coach Hoeppner. I’m assuming they’re going to do the simple black circle on the helmet that every football team does, but I’d really like to see something bigger. Coach Hep only did two years on the IU sideline, but I don’t think any of our football coaches (save maybe Bill Mallory) has meant so much to our football program. The community was steadily getting back into football here, and you’ve gotta give credit to this guy. Hopefully, whatever they put on the uniform will reflect the magnitude of his contributions.

  • Brian Baute | June 20, 2007 at 12:35 am |

    An important detail I should have included in my last comment – each Homestead Grays replica jersey features a number significant in baseball history:

    #3 – Babe Ruth, Harmon Killebrew
    #5 – George Brett, Johnny Bench, Brooks Robinson
    #7 – Mickey Mantle
    #9 – Ted Williams
    #19 – Tony Gwynn, Robin Yount
    #20 – Frank Robinson, Josh Gibson
    #21 – Roberto Clemente
    #24 – Willie Mays, Cool Papa Bell, Tony Perez
    #29 – Satchel Paige, Rod Carew
    #33 – Eddie Murray, Honus Wagner
    #42 – Jackie Robinson
    #44 – Hank Aaron

    Here’s the lineup from behind.

  • ATLien | June 20, 2007 at 12:42 am |

    Well, Mr. Jonas you are very brave to say that about alts, because i think half of all alts suck. Even my beloved Braves. I’ve hated the pooh bear from day 1. They should have went with the olden banana-color jerseys like they did recently. Hell, i even hate the damn stripe they put on the sleeve.

    Under teams that i am envious of their fans uni-wise, they would be:
    Red Sox, White Sox, NY Rangers, Detroit (Wings and Tigers), Dodgers, and finally…the Yankees.

    Yankees. I hate those guys.
