    The South Korean all star jerseys are way nicer that the MLB All Star jerseys. I hope they have nicer pants. Also, too bad Williams couldn’t run this special livery full time.

    The Gulf-themed livery is gorgeous on that Williams car. I’d be happy to see that running around the track every week. The soft blue is unique in the field and would really make them stand out.

    Interesting for the UTEP uniform photo reveal is those pictures were not taken in Texas but rather at White Sands National Park in New Mexico.

    YES! Thank you – I came down to the comments to say this exact thing. I grew up in Las Cruces, NM and visited White Sands National Monument often (in addition to El Paso and Ciudad Juárez). I found UTEP’s use of White Sands as a backdrop for anything associated with a Texas School very, very odd. There is a long standing “Texas vs. Everyone” sentiment along the border.

    The A’s could move to Salt Lake for the next few years. The Bees are moving to a new ballpark in ’25, so they would share one year, then have the old park (14K capacity) for a few years all to themselves plus grow a fan base in Salt Lake (only a 6 hour drive from Vegas).

    Then, at least for those few years, Salt Lake would have the A’s and the Bees…bah dum hiss.

    “The Lynx have unveiled a new racial justice-themed uniform.”

    – I don’t care for a lot things about the WNBA, but I happened to read this entry anyway. All I’ll say is, wow, the Lynx organization has a REALLLLY high opinion of themselves and seem to think they’re incredibly self-important.

    I am a fan of Nike, but what they’ve done and Manfred have done to MLB is embarrassing! I wand individual uniforms worn. At least move the swoosh to the sleeve, the ad patches are disgusting. Manfred has been taking the league further down hill every year.
