Tampa Bay Rays original fauxback logo and uniform, first worn on June 30, 2012. Designed to poke fun at 1970s uniforms, but ironically is that franchise's best. Patterned after the 1978 San Diego Padres uniform and is supposedly from 1979 if the Rays had existed then. Pullover jersey and belted pants. The Rays, like every other team, need to burn all their baseball pants with belts and wear sansabelt baseball pants at all times. Baseball pants with elasticized engineered striped rib trim at waistband with a drawstring resonates with the people. Honestly, these uniforms were designed to look silly but considering the boring alternatives, they should be worn on a full-time basis, both at home and on the road. Grow the game and give that dull franchise a much needed brand identity boost.
