Major League Baseball (MLB) has long boasted about its so-called rich history and traditions, especially with regards to American culture. However, the baseball league will see a commercial sponsor logo on their team jerseys for the very first time next season. MLB released new jerseys along with the Nike 'Swoosh' logo on their official Twitter account which got a set of mixed reviews from baseball fans in the States.
A host of major North American leagues have already embraced the idea of logos and ads on their jersey. But the Nike 'Swoosh' logo will take some time to grow on the MLB fans. As per previous reports, Nike agreed to a 10-year deal that will make Nike the league's official on-field apparel and merchandise designer from next season onwards.
The Nike logo on the front looks awful and I’ll never let it go https://t.co/D4fY6G6p96— F.P. Jr. (@Franky_P_) December 9, 2019
The Nike logo would be fine on the sleeve. This isn't clean at all. https://t.co/e5y1t0HKNT— Dr. #NoHubris (@tokarzontigers) December 9, 2019
