On Friday Major League Baseball released all the uniforms for this year’s Spring Training (which is, apparently, now a Capitalized Thing). This comes as part of the annual merchandise grab for MLB but if we can get some fresh looks on the field out of it I won’t complain. Alas, there’s not that much different about the Rockies’ uniforms.
The 2017 #RoxSpring gear is amazing. And it's available now!— Colorado Rockies (@Rockies) February 3, 2017

At first glance there doesn’t seem to be much of a difference compared to last year’s spring training (not capitalized) gear. The hat seems to be mostly the same, save for swapping the AZ shield to the side opposite the traditional spot for the New Era logo. However, we can now be confident that there will forever be a uniform shade of purple across all brands, which will solve the problem of some merchandise being too blue and others being too bright.
Regardless, we can all be thankful that these uniforms are not as bad as the Tigers’.
