Black and White Uniforms Across MLB For Players’ Weekend 2019

Written By:  •  Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Major League Baseball’s most colourful event of the year will be a little less so in 2019.

This afternoon the Players’ Weekend uniforms for 2019 were unveiled by both the league and the Major League Baseball Players Association, the uniforms, head-to-toe, are either monochromatic black or monochromatic white — with the home team for each game getting first choice of black or white, their opponent getting the opposite (and yes, player nicknames will once again be on the back of the jerseys)

The Players’ Weekend uniform matchup for Yankees at Dodgers — August 23-25, 2019

“Inspired by players’ style choices when they are away from the field, the fashionable monochromatic uniforms allow for each custom accessory design to stand out more than ever before.”, the league said in the press release. “During Players’ Weekend, photo shoots will be conducted with players at ballparks to highlight the standout designs, which will be amplified over social media between MLB, the MLBPA, Clubs and most of all, individual player accounts using #PlayersWeekend.”

“A patch honoring [late Angels pitcher] Tyler Skaggs will also be available for all players to wear on their uniforms, if they choose.”

Caps will be all white or all black, again depending on the uniform being worn by the team, the team logo on the front also re-coloured to match the crown.

The black jerseys will have each team’s wordmark in black trimmed in silver, the white jerseys the same. Most teams will use their usual jersey logo with the exception of a handful — the White Sox have a new script and Mariners will continue with the wordmark logo that was worn across their Players’ Weekend uniforms last season.

The monochromatic look carries on to the back of the jersey for each player’s number, player nicknames will be single-colour silver.

Pitchers on Team White will be wearing a black cap with their uniform to avoid any issues with hitters seeing the ball. They will be the only position player on either side to wear a different cap from the rest of the team.

A look at each of the team’s caps:

And how they pair with the jersey they’ll be worn with:

Batters will wear a matte-black or matte-white helmet, no team logo on the front. Therefore, every game across the league will see the same helmets being used.

This is the third season of the Players’ Weekend event, first introduced in 2017 the idea of those designs was to mimic a Little League uniform with bright, vivid colours worn across the league. A reminder of that look here.

The 2019 Players’ Weekend promotion will run from August 23 through August 25th, the all-black and all-white uniforms will be worn for all games played during those dates.
