As hard as it may be for some to believe, Seattle Mariners fans truly miss the concrete behemoth that was the Kingdome. Maybe not as much as they miss the trident logo and uniforms, but absence makes the heart grow fonder. The Mariners current corporate named stadium just doesn't have the intimidating home field advantage the Kingdome had.

David Cone turned 55 January 2, 2018. A couple of shots of Cone in the best New York Mets uniforms, which include v-neck pullover baseball jerseys. Plus, a gray road David Cone Mets number 44 jersey with the 1982-86 "Mets" wordmark, but with the 1987-90 blue v-neck collar.
Pacific Northwest raised actor Joel McHale, Jeff Winger of Community, wearing a Seattle Mariners star trident logo cap. You look around, it's as if nobody wants to be caught wearing a navy and teal compass rose Mariners cap. The trident just has a much broader appeal. This is an obvious fact to everyone but Kevin Martinez and company apparently.

1986 Card Collectors Company baseball card set of Oakland Athletics outfielder Jose Canseco wearing a white Oakland A's v-neck pullover baseball jersey. 1986, like today, pullover jerseys are the rational, practical, sensible choice of players, fans, and photographers alike.

While manager of the Yomiuri Giants, Japanese home run king Sadaharu Oh demanded the team's uniforms included pullover baseball jerseys! Who is going to argue with that? Former Montreal Expos outfielder Warren Cromartie had joined tbe Giants by then. People of every generation simply prefer pullover jerseys over anything else in the world! There's no debate!

On June 26, 2010, the Oakland A's hosted the Pittsburgh Pirates in a Turn Back the Clock game wearing the Fort Knox gold uniforms of the 1973 World Series champion A's. Gold v-neck pullover baseball jerseys and gold sansabelt baseball pants with a striped waistband. Unfortunately, Majestic, the uniform supplier, made the uniforms, especially the jerseys, too loose. If done the right way, with a proper fit, this could be a viable alternate uniform for the A's once again.

San Diego Padres - Bring Back the Brown
The San Diego Padres - Bring Back the Brown movement is almost as popular as the Seattle Mariners' Bring Back the Trident and Repeal the Teal campaigns!
The San Diego Padres greatest home uniform was from 1980-83, with honorable mention to the San Diego Padres home uniform of 1978. Both those uniforms include pullover baseball jerseys and sansabelt baseball pants with striped waistbands. The Padres best and most popular logo is the Swinging Friar. Why not bring all of this back full-time? The Padres are such a boring, nondescript franchise. Make it fun!
Wear the 1980-83 uniforms once again with the 1978 home uniform as an alternate.
Wear caps with the Swinging Friar logo full-time.
Bring back the satin jacket.
San Diego Padres - Bring Back The Brown!
