Yankees’ Tommy Kahnle has one problem with MLB’s 2024 uniforms

TAMPA — Tommy Kahnle is known for wearing tight baseball pants, but MLB’s new uniforms may be too tight for his liking.

The new uniforms are still designed by Nike, but are now manufactured by Fanatics instead of Majestic, and they surprised the entire camp in the early stages of spring training.

Kahnley said he actually likes the jersey itself, but the new pants aren’t up to snuff.

“Even I didn’t think there was much room for improvement the last few years,” the Yankees reliever said. “But definitely this year you’ll notice that the fabric is a little bit tighter than in the past.

“I think the consensus is they’re not that great. … I know a lot of people don’t really like them.”

Clark-Schmidt agreed that the new uniforms are different, but was also interested in whether they would blend in with more use.

“Maybe it could be a little bit more stringent in certain areas,” Schmidt said. “The material is a little different. The Majestic [pants] I was giving a little more. But let’s see. ”

While the feel of the uniform was the main concern, there was also criticism of the new look, especially the back with the small nameplate.

This is one area that does not affect Yankees jerseys, as his name does not appear on Yankees home or road jerseys.

“It looked weird when I looked at the pictures.” [on other teams’ jerseys]” Schmidt said. “We don’t have a name, so that’s a plus for us.”
