Lone Star Rangers: 1994 – Present
Another redesign in the mid-90’s gave the Rangers a more Texan look and really played up to their name sake. A more decorative hat logo and more alternate jerseys gave the Rangers a more colorful appearance.
Red hats with a white “T” with blue trim was the teams only lid until 2000. The road hat was blue with the white “T”. Next season, that hat became the home hat and a red “T” blue lid was worn on the road. The red hats are still in the rotation. For a few games there was even a black brim hat, which did not look right.
Overall the Rangers have given baseball fans some pretty stylized jerseys over the years. One of my favorite pieces of their uniform was the blue hat worn from the late 1980’s to the early 1990’s. It was a simple look but it looked nice.
On Monday, I’ll be going to the NL West and the Arizona Diamondbacks
