Minnesota Twins unveil redesigned uniforms

The Minnesota Twins unveiled new uniforms on Friday featuring redesigned home, away and alternate looks in addition to a new secondary hat and a revamped font…

The new home jersey features the Twins script across the chest that no longer has a drop shadow or multiple colors, now written just in red. Additionally, the “win” in Twins is underlined, a tradition introduced when Minnesota won the World Series in 1987. The away uniforms also feature pinstripes, which were previously only on the alternate home uniforms from 2010-2018.

I've never understood the attraction of road pinstripes. They look way too much like pajama bottoms.

The M's look like Marlins caps. That can't be a good omen.

I am kind of a uniform nerd, so I am always interested in this type of thing. I do not see these as an upgrade for Minnesota.

The Revamped Font would be a good band name.

The secondary hat (opening for The Revamped Font) is an abomination unto the Lord.

Just go back to the uniform Rod Carew wore ca 1970. That was obviously the one true Twins uni.

I've worked on a lot of corporate iconography over the last two decades. This looks like someone ran the Twins through Illustrator, which is... fine? but shaves off the charm of the older logos.

The road cap is perfectly fine for a baseball team, just not for the Twins.

I'd love to see a team get bold and own the powder blues as their primary road uniform. The Twins (like several other teams) did that for about a decade during my heyday as a young baseball fan, and you see fans gushing about it when teams wear them now (like the Phillies for one World Series game). The Twins had a nice version of it - when I think of the early 80s Twins, my first images are of guys like Hrbek, Gaetti, and Brunansky in the powder blues.

In contrast, I'd like to see all powder blue uniforms forever banished to the hell from which they escaped. I like the idea of teams getting more creative in uniform design (and this Twins makeover most definitely isn't it), but powder blue was always a monstrosity (and, like you, they were prevalent during my baseball-watching heydey. I hated them then, too).

I like the Twin Cities one.

I am with Lassus, the 4th ones look different and I like them.

Those "M" caps are kinda awful.

The Royals had my favorite version, but the Twins wasn't bad, either..

No uniform in history has ever been nearly as lame as some of those "City Connect" jobs, which range from too too precious to downright hideous (The Yellow Sox and "WSH" being the worst). More power to teams that resist trotting out alternate jerseys at every opportunity.

While I recognize that we all have our own opinions, the marketing team that designed the Padres City Connect uniform should never be consulted for anything more than a beer league softball team ever again. The Padres City Connect uniforms are absolutely hideous. And while I loathe all things Red Sox, I kinda dig their City Connect uniforms. For me I just think about the Boston Marathon bombing and I think it's a nice touch.

The benchmark high water mark of the Best Baseball Ever occurred when the beholder was 10 years old.

Contra to that, I loved the cream and navy pinstripes they introduced when they first moved to Target Field in 2010. Those were awesome. The powder blues are from when I was 10 and I am indifferent to them. I hated the steel colored pinstripe roadies from the 1991 team and that MINNESOTA thing on the far left is way too close. I don't mind the Twins script that Buxton is wearing though.
