A Reddit post on r/Baseball claiming that the Mariners will have a total rebrand this offseason has sent fans into a frenzy on Twitter. We’ll see soon if this is real or if we got fooled.
Mariners fans were thrust into a world of wonder last night as a screenshot of a Reddit post on r/Baseball about new uniforms was sent all around Twitter. The post is under a simple question posted about if any teams will have new uniforms for next season, as there had been no rumors of new jerseys around the league despite multiple rebrands this past offseason like the Brewers and Rangers.
"New uniforms in 2021? from baseball"
Under that Reddit post, you can find a comment from the account “JackIBach” saying, “Seattle Mariners are teaming with Nike to do a complete rebrand in 2021-2022.” They go on to say that the Northwest Green color, which right now is used as a trim on the logos and home/road uniforms as well as being the main color of the Friday home alternates, will be prevalent on the new uniforms and logos.
When pressed on who their source is, they say “Let’s just say my pension is with MLB.” Are we being fooled like we were on the Miles Garrett to the Seahawks rumors? Does this random person on Reddit really carry any sort of knowledge? Who knows. But, I would say this would be really cool and is something to watch out for this offseason.
The Mariners are a team in transition and the last major uniform change came in the early years of Ken Griffey Jr. Since then, the Mariners have not done a whole lot of winning, and a new era that we hope will bring with it multiple generational talents, like the last rebrand, could use a fresh set of logos and uniforms.
