Mariners may change uniform color scheme in 2014

In doing some Internet sleuthing, Chris Creamer of SportsLogos.net found a Facebook post by Ebbets Field Flannels, which was “quickly deleted”:

“Doing some informal consulting for the Seattle Mariners on their 2014 uniforms. They are going creme instead of white for the home (we love it). We are gently pushing for them to lose the teal and adapt old gold as the secondary color after navy.”

Creamer points out that the color scheme would be similar to that of the Seattle Pilots in 1969, before they moved to Milwaukee to become the Brewers. The Mariners debuted in 1977 and also used a similar color scheme until rebranding in 1993.

Neither the Pirates nor the Tigers could manage any offense during Thursday afternoon’s game at PNC Park. That is, until outfielder Corey Dickerson launched a walk-off solo home run off of Alex Wilson with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Dickerson, 28, has been solid for the Pirates for the first month of the season. He’s batting .314/.348/.500 with a pair of home runs, 13 RBI, and 13 runs scored in 92 plate appearances. The Pirates acquired him from the Rays in late February in exchange for journeyman pitcher Daniel Hudson and Single-A infielder Tristan Gray.
