With the abbreviated 2020 season underway, fans aren't just being treated to live action from the diamond. They're also getting to check out their teams' new threads in action. Making good on changes announced long before Opening Day -- the original and the one we all just got to enjoy -- players rolled out and rocked their new uniforms.
First up, on Sunday, the Texas Rangers trotted out their new alternate look in light blue at home to wrap up their first series in their new stadium, Global Life Park in Arlington, Texas. Although the Rangers have always favored red, white and blue for their color scheme, the light blue is sort of a throwback for Texas. Shades of light blue were in the mix for the team's uniforms in the late 1970s and early '80s -- but on the road.

If we had to guess, Joey Gallo probably wears it best:

Perhaps no uniform change was more anticipated than the San Diego Padres' moving back to their classic brown-and-yellow look, reverting to the color scheme that nobody else could pull off:
Of course, teams on the road ran out some new looks as well. The Milwaukee Brewers, who again are emphasizing their ball-in-glove logo, showed off their new navy blue duds with classic script letting you know where they're from:
Similarly, the Pittsburgh Pirates showed off their new riff on an old theme with alternate road black uniforms:
