With the NFL, NBA and NHL making relatively recent switches when it came to league-wide apparel suppliers, it was only right that MLB would eventually make a switch of their own. Indeed, MLB was initially set to switch from Majestic to Under Armour in time for the 2019 season. However, Paul Lukas of ESPN’s Uni Watch is reporting that the deal has been pushed back to 2020.
Of course, that means that Majestic will continue in their current role for at least another season. That also means that we’re going to go another season without seeing the manufacturer’s logo on the chest of the jersey instead of seeing it on the normal spot of the sleeves.
Paul Lukas also reported that this is actually a return to what the original timetable was. When MLB came to their agreement with Under Armour, the deal was scheduled to go into effect in 2020 but the timetable was moved up to 2019 after Fanatics bought Majestic and became their parent company. However, things have changed for some reason and now they’re back on the original date.
So, who here is disappointed about the date being pushed back to its original date after originally being slated for an early start? Anybody here grateful for another year of Majestic?
