- You might want to take a good look at Kit (association football), a similar article which is featured.
- The Baseball cap has comparatively little coverage, most of the section dscribes previous types of cap.
- A section about the growth of commercial sales of caps and jerseys would be useful.
- Several statements need referencing. Some examples are
- As official nicknames gained prominence in the early 1900s (in contrast to media-generated and unofficial nicknames of prior generations), pictorial logos began emerging as part of the team's marketing.
- the Boston Americans (an unofficial designation that merely distinguished them from their across-the-tracks rivals) adopted the Nationals' abandoned red stockings in 1908, and have been the Boston Red Sox officially ever since then.
- the stocking colors of teams in the 1860s onward were a principal device in distinguishing one team from another
- detachable spikes were designed and were seen multiple times until 1976 when they were prohibited.
- Further experimenting led to innovations such as the Houston Astros of the 1970s and 1980s putting numbers on a front pants pocket as well as on the back of the shirt.
- The team most often identified with pinstripes would be the New York Yankees. Legend has it that the stripes were adopted to make Babe Ruth look slimmer. That story is a myth, as the Yankees had already adopted pinstripes several years before acquiring Ruth.
- It became standard practice to wear white at home and gray or another somewhat dark color on the road.'
