Uni Watch has a first look at all 30 of the new looks.

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Major League Baseball will be selling selling selling introducing redesigned batting practice caps for the 2013. The frighteningly completist uniform and logo site Uni Watch has the full scoop.

Here's the Phillies' previous design, and new design:

Shocking change, I know.

I'm almost completely indifferent to uniform designs unless they're so horrific that they scald the corneas or are blatantly offensive in some way. Atlanta Braves, that's your cue!

HOORAY FOR THE BRAVES, the organization that not just tolerates but encourages the vile, racist "Tomahawk Chop" at its home games, has reintroduced the thought-to-be-buried "screaming savage" Braves logo that hasn't appeared since 1989.

Retro appeal is one thing, but this is quite another. Based on some of the backlash I'm reading this morning, I think there's a pretty good chance that MLB and the Braves back out on this one, but this was a really dumb move by everyone involved.
