Major League Baseball revealed the stadium and uniforms for next week’s “Field of Dreams” game between the New York Yankees and Chicago White Sox in Dyersville, Iowa, but fans aren’t happy about Nike’s branding being on the jerseys.
Ahead of the game, the MLB unveiled the jersey designs for both teams that are inspired by the early 1900s.

Fans immediately blasted the jersey design due to the fact that the Nike logo is emblazoned over both retro jerseys.
Nothing says "It's like the 1910s over here!" like a ye olde time Nike logo 😒 (I dig these otherwise.) https://t.co/TtQCXQB27t

Want the authentic and nostalgic look? Ditch the damn Nike logo. Ruins it. https://t.co/CSXKh4fZ4y
