Yep, I’m a Closet Purist

Last night the local baseball team, the Arizona Diamondbacks, introduced new colors, new uniforms and, soon, a reinvigorated revenue stream.


The team jettisoned — thank God — the purple and went with more desert-like colors. I like them and feel the update was overdue…which is strange for a team that’s only nine years old.

Since the the mid 1990s, when the new-stadium rage began, new team unis have been occurring across the majors every year.

Thankfully, though, not in the case of the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers’ home uniforms are, in this fan’s opinion, the best in baseball, period. The roadies are nothing special but those home whites put other teams’ unis to shame.

It’s funny, though, isn’t it? The Tigers home uniforms may have changed once in the early 1900s but never since. The D’backs? Twice in nine years. Go figure.
