The wound caused by my Dodgers losing their second World Series is still fresh, but believe it or not baseball season is almost here. Spring training is about to start, and before you know it we will be singing about peanuts and cracker jacks.
In honor of the fast approaching first pitch, Sports Team Apparel is here to help you get your MLB clothing picked out and ordered for opening day!
A baseball cap is a must have item for every baseball fan. There are several brands of MLB caps, each made of different material.
One popular brand of MLB hats is New Era Cap Company, which is a company based in Buffalo, NY. The company has been around since 1920, so it is a very trusted name in sports team apparel.
They offer several styles, from on-field fitted to SnapBack truckers hats. New Era also offers team gear in alternate colors, which I don’t prefer but the young kids seem to. My favorite items from New Era are the Cooperstown collection hats, especially the Brooklyn Dodgers hats that are made of wool.
Another popular brand is ‘47, a company founded by Italian immigrants in Boston. Their amazing story can be found on their website.
47 brand offers a number of great product lines, and thy are sure to have the perfect hat for you. I and my family members have personally owned a number of ‘47 brand hats. They look great and are very comfortable.
MLB Baseball Jerseys
The MLB baseball jersey of your favorite team or player would be an awesome addition to anyone’s wardrobe. In looking for a jersey, there are various price points to choose from.
The highest price point jersey is the Authentic Collection Player Jersey. As the name suggests, these are authentic jerseys. These cost between $300.00 and $400.00 depending on the team and/or player. You also have the ability to create custom MLB jerseys if you wish. If you are looking for the “best of the best” this is the jersey for you.
The next level MLB baseball jersey available is the Authentic Collection Flex Base Player Jersey. These jerseys cost between $200.00-$300.00; you can find some on sale for around $150.00.
If you are looking for cheap MLB jerseys, Some replica jerseys cost less than $100.00. Also, you can find some discount MLB jerseys online. However, these will likely not be authentic jerseys.
Authentic Throwback Jerseys
One really amazing piece of MLB clothing is the
Mitchell and Ness throwback jerseys. These are replica jerseys of all-time great MLB Jerseys. You can purchase replica jerseys of players like Babe Ruth and Jackie Robinson. These jerseys run from $80.00 for the throwback replica jerseys to $350.00 for authentic throwback jerseys.
Baseball Hoodies and Sweatshirts
MLB has some of my favorite hoodies, and I wear a LOT of hoodies. I am in the market for a new Dodgers hoodie, so I will be shopping as I write this article.
Nike offers a unique MLB hoodies. They appear to be a button-up jersey with a hooded sweatshirt underneath, but they are just one piece. The hoodie does button close, which I do not prefer. I do think they are a cool concept. These cost about $99.00.
Nike also offers a full zip hoodie with an oversized logo of your favorite team on the front. These are a little more classic looking, which fits my style choices. These will cost about $80.00.
One item that I really love is the Head Coach hoodie or sweatshirt from Mitchell and Ness. Although this is a bit of a misnomer because baseball has managers that wear uniforms like the players, the design is very vintage, which I really like. These will run you about $90.00 and the team selections are limited.
As a lover of Sports and Star Wars, I think the MLB Star Wars themed sweatshirts are pretty cool. However, I would only recommend these if you are a huge Star Wars fan or have several items from the team already and are looking for something different.
Columbia also offers a full zip hoodie that is very sharp. These look like they would be warmer than a regular sweatshirt and more like a jacket, but the styling is on point regardless. These run about $75.00.
The winner and the sweatshirt I think I will be purchasing, is very basic, but I love the simplicity. It is the Victory Arch Pullover. If you are like me, you like conservative design without a lot of extra. If that is the case, you will love this sweatshirt.
As baseball season drags on into summer, you are going to want to put those sweatshirts away and break out the t-shirts and tank tops. Luckily, there are many options to choose from, allowing you to stay cool while representing your favorite team.
It would be an impossible task to go over the thousands of MLB t-shirts that are available (there are over 1000 for the Dodgers alone). However, I will share a few of my favorites.
One of my favorite styles of t-shirt is the “distressed” look. Even though your t-shirt may be new, or looks like it’s been in your family for years.
I also like the Hometown t-shirts, which incorporates a little of the team’s city into the shirt. For example, the Yankees hometown shirt has subway signs.
Finally, I really like the t-shirts that have the logo on front with the team’s home state. I think this is a nice touch to connect the team to the area at large.
I love wearing MLB socks. In fact, I am wearing a
pair of Dodger socks as I write this. My favorite, by far, are the MLB socks from Stance. They are so comfortable and cozy, and seem to never lose their color or wear out. I will shortly be purchasing every pair the offer for the Dodgers.
Of course, as they are the official provider of Socks for MLB, they will have plenty of choices for your favorite team. Basically, I can not recommend these socks enough.
Spring is on its way and soon baseball season will be upon us. There is plenty of time to get your MLB clothes in time for opening day. Hopefully your team won’t break your heart this year like mine does every year.
