As I’ve said several times in the past, there should be a law that says all teams should have their city or state name on their road jerseys. The Brewers have been one of the primary offenders of this shadow law, but they’re at least trying to come back into compliance:
The Brewers today unveiled alternate road jersey tops featuring the word “Milwaukee” across the front that the team will begin wearing “occasionally” during the 2010 season. The team also continue to use its primary grey road jerseys, which say, “Brewers.”
That fact has long been a point of contention for some fans, who have been vocal about their desire to see the Brewers trumpet the city they call home.
Photos of the jerseys appear in the linked article.
Good for the Brewers. Now make it a permanent fixture. Because any team that accepts public money for their ballpark sure as hell should display some public pride.
