The Royals announced a new road alternate and it actually looks pretty nice. It’s simple and it features the same element as some other teams have. Like the Nationals, they feature two-tone piping. Like the Tigers, it’s just a simple chest logo and nothing else.
But the problem with this alternate jersey is not the template, but the decision to include the powder blue in it. As much as they want to have powder blue prominent in their identity, it’s mainly a secondary color.
With that said, it just seems the powder blue is so forced into the piping and logo. Their primary logo doesn’t even feature that color. Was all this really necessary?
Maybe it’s not as bad if the piping featured three stripes, with the blue running down the middle, similar to how the A’s do it. It gives a secondary color better balance.
I’m indifferent about this new alternate. I suppose it will be great for merchandise sales but that’s really it. I rather they just kept their previous alts.
And for fun, this song because it’s somewhat related.
