Bud Selig: Uniforms important
Citing the historic significance of his sport’s uniforms, Major League Baseball commissioner Bud Selig is in no hurry to follow the NBA’s lead in allowing small advertising patches to be placed on uniforms.
The NBA Board of Governors approved the use of the patches to help raise revenue, estimating it could produce $100 million.
“You learn never to say never, but you know, with us, uniforms are really important,” Selig said on “The Waddle & Silvy Show” on ESPN 1000. “They’re history.
“You can close your eyes, and that Cub uniform, my goodness gracious, I can remember (that from) when I was 10 years old, and that’s a long time ago. And there’s the Yankee pinstripes, and the Red Sox and so on and so forth, so I’ve been pretty consistent on that.”
