(Editor's Note: Thank you for the compliment and comment from one of our readers named Jim (bottom of story) concerning the original non-nameplate Manny Ramirez jersey we used as a story illustration. As he pointed out it was a fake jersey, and we don't promote fake jerseys at PLA so we replaced the photo with David Wright's jersey (above). Our appreciation to Jim for correcting a mistake.)
We have always felt when it comes to putting players names on the back of jerseys; the only sport where nameplates make sense is football.
Patch news: In addition to the Steelers and Redskins celebrating 80th anniversary seasons in 2012, the Houston Texans, believe it or not, are celebrating a 10th anniversary (11th season) and will wear a commemorative patch as well.
When MLB and New York City officials announced Wednesday that the Mets will host the all star game at Citi Field in 2013, there was no unveiling of a logo to be worn as a patch on Mets uniforms, although that could happen around this year’s game in Kansas City July 10.
Also, shouldn’t the jersey Bud Selig was holding at the city hall press conference in this photo been the number “20?”
