No uni changes for the Yankees (there’s a shocker), but it’s worth noting that Mariano Rivera has gone high-cuffed throughout spring training and says he’ll probably stick with that look during the regular season because it makes him “feel lighter.” If a player as respected and influential as Big Mo starts showing some sock on a regular basis, that can only bode well for the state of baseball hosiery.
No official changes for the Mets, although Uni Watch hears through the grapevine that they will probably be wearing their black alternate jersey a bit less this season, which of course counts as good news. Also: D.J. Carrasco, who wore an assortment of logo-emblazoned stirrups last year for the Pirates, is going a similar route now that he’s a Met. - Uni Watch
