The Orioles have made a number of significant roster moves to keep them in the pennant hunt this season.
But before all that, they made an addition that truly changed the look of the team.
The cartoon bird logo has been a hit with almost anybody you ask, and that includes ESPN’s Paul Lukas, who has the O’s at No. 27 in his rankings of the uniforms for all 122 teams in the four major professional sports leagues.
These rankings are only one man’s opinion, but that man is widely believed to be the guru of uniform aesthetics.
Here’s Lukas’ take on the Orioles’ uniform set.
Black and orange is a seriously undervalued color combination in sports design, and nobody uses it better than the Orioles. The home script is a thing of beauty, the road script has been nicely tweaked this season, and the return of the cartoon bird and the white-paneled cap has made the Orioles a really fun-looking team. So why aren't they ranked a bit higher? Because let's face it: No baseball team needs two different solid-colored alternate jerseys.
If you’re wondering where that other Baltimore pro team ranks, Lukas has the Ravens at No. 93.
Nos. 1-25 are scheduled to be unveiled Friday.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
