I have long contended that the Tigers home uniform is the best uniform in baseball. It has looked good for decades. It looks good on any body type. The whites seem brighter than any other team’s whites. The English D is perfection. The blue is the perfect shade of blue. A hair darker than navy, it seems, even if it’s called navy. Aside from one crazy “what in the hell were they thinking?” year in 1960, the Tigers have stuck with that look since 1934 (though the English D was in use as early as 1904). With apologies to the Yankees and the Dodgers, whose livery I have always loved, I believe it to be the best uniform in baseball history. Which made me freak out for a second when I heard that they were messing with it for 2018. Then I read Anthony Fenech’s piece about it in the Detroit Free Press and I calmed down some, as it’s only a minor tweak. The biggest thing they’re doing is making the “D” on the jersey match the “D” on the cap.
