2019 MLB On-Field All-Star Hat
The 2019 Little League Baseball and Softball World Series Uniforms have been designed and created by adidas. The design behind each uniform was inspired by each unique region from across the globe, highlighting the story of unity, tradition, and the history behind the Little League patch. We see highlighted on the jersey’s sleeves a unique color bar that was inspired and designed based off of the flags from each regional identify. On the inside of the jersey’s neck, each region’s color bar has been fused together to create a unity band, as a final reminder of the league’s commitment to unity as players put on their jerseys and head out to the field.
The left sleeve of the jerseys will have the signature Little League Patch. adidas created an all-new original typography that highlights each region’s name and each player’s number. We see the final touch of an underline stretching below each regional name to visualize the game’s base paths.
“Thanks to the tremendous efforts of the adidas team, this year’s uniforms will create a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will remind every Little League World Series player about the importance of unity, tradition, and history.” -Liz DiLullo Brown, Little League Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer
