While the colorful MLB Players' Weekend jerseys of the last few years were on the polarizing side, 2019's monochromatic look has been pretty much universally panned, especially the all-white jerseys that obscure the nicknames on the back of the jersey, thus nullifying the coolest part of Players' Weekend altogether.
Twins reliever Trevor May and a few other members of the Minnesota bullpen decided to have a little fun with these jerseys, paying homage to one of the finest pieces of modern art, also known as the Backstreet Boys' "Millennium" album cover.
Good job making the best out of a bad situation.
These uniforms have been given a solid thumbs-down across the baseball world, with the Dodgers lobbying unsuccessfully to get out of wearing them in the first place. While both sets are terrible, the all-black road uniforms are SLIGHTLY better than the home white ones, if only because pitchers wearing white still had to wear their usual caps as to not obscure the ball.
At the end of the day, we want to see the nicknames on the back of the jersey. It's cooler to see "Polar Bear" hit a home run than Pete Alonso. However, on the white jerseys, you can't even see them, which defeats the whole purpose.
The MLB better go back to the jerseys they used last year, because Team Milkmen vs Team Metallica isn't going over so well with the players or fans at home.
