Diamondbacks’ road uniforms became the talk of Twitter
Along with the Arizona Diamondbacks’ first road game of the season came their first chance to wear one of their new away uniforms.
For Tuesday’s affair with the Los Angeles Dodgers, they chose their gray uniform with teal accents. It’s a look that had never been seen in baseball, and one that did not go unnoticed.
Many of the reviews were not particularly positive.
The Diamondback's uniforms make them look like futuristic maintenance men working on a trash truck in space. pic.twitter.com/hZ3eompYvy

These Arizona Diamondbacks uniforms have to be one of the worst if not the worst I've ever seen

Perhaps it should not be a surprise that not everyone is fond of the new look. And just last week, similar thoughts were shared about the team’s home white uniform, too.
But just because some people do not like the uniforms does not mean nobody is fond of them, and it is not at all difficult to find fans of the threads.
Am I supposed to hate these Diamondbacks uniforms? Because I do not hate them.

So there you have it. The early returns on the D-backs’ new duds are mixed, as expected.
