May 3rd, 2024

Major League Baseball and NIKE, Inc., the Official Uniform Supplier of MLB, announced today that adjustments will be made to all Club uniforms following conversations with players, Clubs, and their equipment managers.

“Player and Club feedback is extremely important to us,” said Commissioner of Baseball Robert D. Manfred, Jr. “Together with Nike, we listened to our players and as a result, we are addressing their concerns.”

For the 2025 season, Nike-designed MLB uniforms will include larger lettering on the back of jerseys with individual pant customization made available to all players. Nike is also working on a solution to address the slight color differences between the jerseys and pants of some Clubs’ gray road uniforms, as well the discoloration that can occur due to perspiration in certain instances. Once the solution is finalized, adjusted gray uniforms will go on field as soon as the second half of this season.

“We will continue to work with Nike to make adjustments with the goal of delivering a uniform that looks good and helps MLB players perform at their best,” said Manfred.
