Each player will still be able to pick a special nickname to wear on the back on their jersey in the place of their last name. The uniforms are meant to allow each player the opportunity to creatively represent themselves with their creatively colored and decorated equipment; such as bats, spikes, batting gloves, wristbands, compression sleeves and catcher’s equipment. This will really let each player set themselves apart on a blank canvas. Each home team will decide which color uniform they will wear and pitchers on teams wearing white will wear black caps to allow umpires and batters clear visibility of each pitch.

The Expos’ logo is one of the more iconic logos in baseball history, so the fact that it is front and center on the uniform is really cool.” -Nationals closer Sean Doolittle

Nike Force Zoom Trout 6 Cleats

Mike Trout and Nike have released his sixth signature cleat, the Nike Force Zoom Trout 6 cleat. This time around Trout didn’t hold back when it came to his signature shoe. He dove right in with everything he wanted to see on this cleat. His focus was to give back to the younger generation and really create a cleat that would hit home with them as well as make them the best player on the baseball diamond.

“I held in my feedback for those first meetings, but it was more because I didn’t know Nike could make the smallest changes based on what I wanted. If there was some seam on the cleat I didn’t like, I could change it, or if there was a feature from a past cleat I wanted to bring in, I could do it. Looking back, I should’ve been more vocal from day one.” - Mike Trout

The Five-Tool criteria for Trout’s perfect cleat were:

  • Comfort “It starts as soon as you put it on. You need to be able to play and not worry about your feet bothering you.”

  • Weight “You obviously can’t have heavy feet out there during play. Linear speed is a critical part of the game.”

  • Flair “Does it look good? I’m big on feeling confident in a certain look.”

  • Durability “A comfortable cleat needs to last. You can’t have a cleat break down after wearing it for a week.”

  • Personal Details “There are details on a cleat that people might not see on camera, but are incredibly personal to me, like the area code to my hometown. A big component for me is when you can present a cleat to someone and build a story around it.”

Look for the cleat to be on sale July 5th along with a turf version.

The look was one of the most unique uniforms worn by the Reds, with the style being known as the "Palm Beach" named by the uniform's manufacturer, Cincinnati-based Goldsmith & Sons. This uniform was designed as an attempt to offer players a lighter weight alternative to the heavily flannel jerseys that was the traditional look at the time. The unique design featured an open-weave fabric construct to make the uniforms more breathable during the hot Cincinnati summers. The uniforms didn’t stop with new material they also incorporated red pants for the first and only time in the club’s history, and on the front of the jersey is the script Reds mark. The "Palm Beach" jersey was worn occasionally as an alternate uniform from 1936 -1938 but the uniform combination that included the red pants was only worn during the 1936 season.
