The picture at right is from a recent college baseball match-up between the University of Florida and the University of Rhode Island (via UniWatch). That jersey should look familiar. It is basically a complete knock-off of the Rays powder blue alternate jersey.
The serifs are a little smaller, and there is no sunburst. But everything else is identical, right down to the navy blue piping along the placket and on the sleeves.
Certainly, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Something the (Devil) Rays have never experienced before. But we wonder how the Rays, an organization that is very protective of their identity, and Majestic, the makers of big league jerseys, feel about this.
We have a feeling Rhode Island and Adidas will be receiving letters from Major League Baseball in the very near future.
