We’ve already learned that the Houston Astros are going back to some sort of orange and blue shooting star combination for next season, only modernized, when they move into the American League West division.
The Mets have unveiled the first All Star Game patch minus any team or city reference since the 2005 game for next summer’s game in Flushing, and now, the Colorado Rockies have unveiled their 20th anniversary logo for next season which will be worn as a jersey patch (pictured above).
For the Rockies, it’s their fourth anniversary/commemorative patch
in team history, joining the patch they wore in their inaugural season of 1993,
the first season of play at Coors Field in 1995, the 1998 All Star game patch,
and the 10th anniversary patch of 2003.
It’s likely the Marlins will join Colorado with a 20th anniversary patch as well.
