Cincinnati Reds-style soccer jersey

The Reds Soccer Jersey

Or, is it a football shirt?

Either way, when I posted a image of my creation on Twitter Saturday morning it got a positive response. Many folks asked where I purchased it or where they could get one, so I wanted let everyone know that it’s actually custom-made and share how it was created. It wasn’t difficult really, just a matter of sourcing the parts and getting it put together. So, in an effort to inspire others to create their own, here’s how it all happened…

In 2010 I was inspired to create a Cincinnati Reds soccer jersey for myself. I had picked up a couple of national team shirts over the years, including ’07 England, ’07 Germany, and a ’10 USA.

Though you do occasionally see a hockey-style fashion jersey for baseball teams, I figured that nothing like this existed for baseball, much less the Reds. Knowing that I couldn’t design something completely from scratch and have it produced, I figured I would put one together using “off-the-shelf” parts.

I knew I wanted to incorporate the Mr. Redlegs patch seen on the Reds’ home jerseys as a “crest” type emblem. The trick was to get the right jersey, incorporating the correct Reds font used for the numbers, and of course, getting everything pieced together professionally.

Here’s a rundown of the shirt elements and how they came together:

  • The base shirt is a Nike Team shirt with a white base and thin red horizontal stripes. This is actually the shirt I had in mind when I started the project and I was able to order it from Nike back in 2010. I looked through a few soccer catalogs to see what other styles were available from other manufacturers at the time, but nothing beat this style for me.
  • The Mr. Redlegs patch and NUXY path were both purchased at Koch’s Sporting Goods in downtown Cincinnati. They have a ton of this kind of stuff, including some older patches from the ’88 All Star Game and other goodies.
  • Koch’s also provided the numbers for the back of the shirt. We used just the red layer and they are the same size as the ones used on Reds jerseys, Koch’s also sewed everything together for me.
  • There was one design element that was eliminated while working with Koch’s on the project. I originally wanted to do a white outline around the numbers on the back. This is identical to the design of the actual Reds jersey numbers, except I was not going to use the black drop shadow. The white would have been a subtle effect, but I think it would have been pretty crisp. We left it out was because the shirt material is very thin and we didn’t know if that much stitching would do damage to the jersey. Koch’s was a little nervous about it, so we decided to just use the red layer. It still came out well. Looking back at it now, it probably would have been okay.

Why 25? I guess that’s “my number.” I wore it playing football in high school and college. Oddly enough, I didn’t wear it playing baseball. A lower number or single digit would probably be a little more soccer-like. 2 would have worked for me as well.

Overall, I wanted to keep it simple. There were other add-ons that I thought of, but any more might ruin what is really working for this design. If I were to do another one, I would likely draw inspiration from the ’70s-era Reds designs, using solid colors and the heavy block font.

Our buddy C. Trent Rosecrans pointed me to designer Mark Willis’ blog where he has explored how MLB team designs would translate to soccer jerseys in a series called Soccer Our of Context. It’s a brilliant concept and you can go through his take on the NL Central right here. Personally, I’d love to see a Reds concept with black dropped from the pallet (as would C. Trent), but it’s still a great concept. The Braun (P&G) sponsorship also is a nice German tie-in to Cincinnati though it may not have been the original intent. Make sure you check it out. C. Trent also mentioned creating a look for the Reds based on Croatia’s current kit. Now, that would be great place to start.

So, if you’re diggin’ the soccer/football style, I encourage you to go out and make your own. I think it was a fun mash-up and certainly something unique. Also, when it gets darn hot out in the summer, the lightweight wicking soccer-style shirts are perfect. If you do make your own, make sure you share it with us. We’d love to see it.

Mr. OMG

Hurts so good

Oh my wow! A very passionate OMGreds fan is letting everyone know who she’s down with. Submitted on Reddit earlier today, our biggest fan (apparently?!) shared a photo of his freshly tattooed arm, sporting a slightly modified (we approve!) Mr. OMG*.

To our fan: If this is your arm, give us a shout, we’d love to chat.

Thanks to @mucusoffmybrain for giving us the heads up.

*Just made up “Mr. OMG” he really didn’t have a name before. Makes sense though, right? Right.

OMGreds' Rob ready for the pitch

Reds Wiffle Classic

Another Reds Summer Wiffle Classic, another great time had. For the third year in a row, OMGreds fielded a team of properly-jerseyed gents to compete against some of the best Wiffle Ball teams in the area, and beyond.

With the field set at 53 teams, OMG looked to cut through the competition like a hot butter knife. After a 1-1-1 record in Saturday morning’s pool play, we realized once again that we’re merely mortal. Our mild success during the initial round earned us a #21 seed and a chance to make some hay in the tournament bracket.

Reality set in once again as we found ourselves behind during our first tournament game going into the bottom of the 4th and final inning. OMG rallied to pull the score even and Rob smacked a game-winning homer the next inning to advance us. Maybe Rosie little visit was good luck?

Our next round draw pitted us against a team mostly from the New York area, HOTDAM, who sported coordinated uniforms with pretty much the most badass Wiffle Ball logo of all time on their sleeves. Let me tell you, their team was as good as their logo, and then some. We battled ‘em four long innings, but lost a heart-breaker 1-0. HOTDAM ended up losing in the finals, so at least we went down to some quality competition.

We did some winning on the field, but we were also winning off the field. I purchased a few raffle tickets (funds benefiting the Reds Community Fund) and ended up scoring a beautifully-signed Jay Bruce baseball. #Winning!

Thanks again to the Reds Community Fund for having us again this year. Always a great time… win, lose or draw. We’re already looking forward to playing next year.

Btw, the fellas from HOTDAM let us know about Travis Roy Foundation WIFFLE Ball Tournament held in Essex, Vermont. Tournament games are held in replicas of Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. Rad! Check out this Uni Watch story from 2007 for some details and video. You nerds out there will enjoy.

Keeping you in the know

Since the start of this blog, we’ve tried to keep you informed about Reds and baseball-related events around Cincinnati. Nothing frustrated us more than hearing about something that already happened. What? Dave Parker was signing autographs at the SupeRx in Kenwood? Damn, we would have been there! Exactly.

With that, we announce a new addition to OMGreds.com: The OMGreds Events calendar!

Instead of doing even round-up posts and having them get buried after a few updates, we’ve created a dedicated page to list events like meet & greets, player appearances, autograph signings and more. We do our best to stay on top of things, but if you know about an event that is not listed that you think should be, drop us a line at ballsout at omgreds dot com.

Sports Gallery

Awesomeness

You’ll also notice that our Events Calendar is sponsored by Sports Gallery. We are proud to have them as the first-ever sponsor on OMGreds. Located in West Chester, Ohio, Sports Gallery has a phenomenal selection of Reds and baseball collectables, memorabilia, sports cards and more. They also have quality signing events with current and former Reds and other Cincinnati sports icons. We encourage you to support their business. You can find them online at www.asportsgallery.com.

So, check out the darn Events calendar already! Information about several great autograph signings this week with Mat Latos, Zack Cozart, Jay Bruce and Johnny Cueto are listed!

Cincy Lineup gets Local 12 action!

Check out this clip from Local 12 from Opening Day featuring the Cincy Lineup app we shared with you last week. We also enjoyed our two seconds in the sun… OH MY GOD REDS DOT COM BLOG. Big thanks to Katie Clavey for the love.

We’re going to Wiffle House!

OMGmike knows magic

OMGmike knows magic

For the second year in the row, the OMGreds crew broke out the yellow bats and competed in the Reds Community Fund Summer Wiffle Classic. You can check out our wrap-up from 2010 right here.

This year, the field of teams was considerable smaller – 33 compared to 80 the year before. The long waits between games were non-exsistant this time around and we got a heck of a lot of Wiffle in a short amount of time.

OMGreds faired well round-robin session, going 2-2, all games being decided by 2 runs or less. That got us a 14 seed in the tournament. Not bad, but a run here or there in those losses would have bumped us up for sure. In bracket play, we won a very tight first game 1-0. We moved to the second round only to be handed a 5-3 loss against a pretty good Wiffle Ball team. We were up 3-2 after the top of the third inning (we play four), but couldn’t hang on for the win.

Of course, we had a great time. Got our yearly Wiffle in, got a sweat going, drank a ton of Gatorade, got our Big League Chew on, got hugs from Rosie Red, and got a little sun burn. Wouldn’t have it any other way.

The only thing we didn’t get to do was square off against those SABR-toothed nerds over at Red Reporter. Drats! We will someday meet on the field of battle.

Brian Blinn, Director of the Reds Summer Wiffle Classic provided us with breakdown of the tournament and who got invites to play at Redsfest.

33 teams this year
28 Adult teams
5 Youth

Final Four Teams
1. Gasoline Suits
2. Scratch ‘n Wiff
3. Legends
4. Dos Dudes

The Gasoline Suits beat Scratch ‘n Wiff in the finals 3-0

All four teams are invited to Redsfest in December to play another small tourney.

Here are a few photos for ya.

OMGreds will once again be ballin’ in the Reds Community Fund Summer Wiffle Classic on August 6th, 2011.

A fine cause, if you ask us.

Redlegs Run: It’s a Rap!

Redlegs Run

5301 - Our lucky number!

Kudos to the Reds for another great editon of the Reds Community Fund Redlegs Run. While we didn’t “Run for Home” due to the epic rainstorm the morning of the race, it was a lot of fun. Folks that ran the 10k got slightly drenched while the 5k participants saw nearly perfect weather. Go figure. All runners and walkers did enjoy a nice post-race party in the GABP Fan Zone and a few “Blog Joggers” enjoyed post-post-race beers at Holy Grail (you should have been there, man!). Good times.

Speaking of times, here’s how the Get Fresh Crew at OMGreds fared:

Dan – 5k: 25:00 (on the dot)
Dave – 5k: 28:38
Paul – 10k: 49:22 5k: 27:50 (yes, he ran both!)

By the way, did you see Team Marty? Best team costume, evar!

The Redlegs Run This Town

OMGreds jersey

Make sure you look for the fool wearing this OMGreds Authentic Diamond Collection jersey while you’re hustlin’ the 5k. We’ll also be down early for the 10k looking for the fella with the free Marathon bars. Better to load up on those bars instead of Skyline before the race, right? Right.

It’s going to be hotter than Jay Bruce in May in that jersey, so make sure you make it worth our while and say hi, or at least throw us a funny look. We’ll be hangin’ around all the Blog Jog action and we’re looking forward to meetin’ ya.

BUMMER ALERT! We will NOT have swag to hand out after (or during) the Redlegs Run tomorrow. We’re super-bummed. Our swag supplier didn’t get us the goods in time. We’ll have some goodies later this season, no worries. We aim to help fill your junk draw with things that you don’t really have a use for, but just can’t bear to throw away. It’s a fine line, and we know how to walk it.

Blog Jog: Do it.

Blog Jog

Redlegs Run

If you make regular rounds on popular Reds blogs, you have heard about this year’s Inaugural Blog Jog at the Redlegs Run on Saturday, June 11. The past few years we’ve laced up our buddies and gotten after it for 3.1 miles in hopes of glory and dehydration. This year will be no different. Well, except for that whole “Blog Jog” thing. That does make it different. The potential dehydration will be no different.

So, how can you participate?

After registering for the Redlegs Run at reds.com/5k (online registration is closed, but other opportunities are available), please shoot an email to blogjog@reds.com and let the Reds know you will be taking part in the event. Make sure you let them know what blog you are supporting too! There is no additional fee to participate.

Blogs willing to Jog

Participating blogs:

So, how do I register for the race now?!

You can register at any of the packet pick-ups:

  • Saturday, June 4: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
    Fleet Feet Sports – corner of Kenwood and Cooper roads in Blue Ash (513-793-8383)
  • Thursday, June 9: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.
    Great American Ball Park – Crosley Terrace, corner of Second Street and Joe Nuxhall Way

    Great American Ball Park – Gate 3, Pete Rose Way

What’s in it for you?

Blog Jog attendees will be invited to a pre-race gathering at the ballpark, where we will award prizes for best signs, shirts, and costumes/outfits. We’ll take tons of photos and try to drum up some other perks, as well. We are also going to work on a post-race gathering place off-site for our group.

Nice! Those “other perks” sound intruirging, don’t they? Wonder if the Reds have any Wily Mo Pena bobbleheads kicking around in storage?

Tell you what, no need to show OMGreds fandom on your person. It’s all good. We know you love us. We’ll do this though: Bring us the most rediculous Reds baseball card you have, and are willing to give up. We’ll trade you a little OMGreds swag for it. It’s like a swap meet! A Mini-Mall! Flea Market!

As for the Redlegs Run, if you are on the fence about running, walking or even being down there, take it from us, it’s worth it. Collectively, OMGreds has run dozens and dozens of marathon, half-marathons, 5k and all races in-between. The Redlegs Run is one of the best run races in town and boasts a fantastic post race party. We ran the inaugural one in 2001 and we keep coming back – it gets better every year. Also, it BLOWS AWAY the Bengals 5k held last fall. It can’t even hold a candle to Redlegs Run.

New look

Hope you dig it. We’ve still got some tweaking to do around here, but for the most part, here it is. This isn’t much of a post, and the new look really didn’t warrant one, but it was a good excuse to post the photo above. Enjoy!

Gettin’ the band back together

Getting the band back together

Reds Brothers?

We’re firing this sucka back up, folks. More from OMGreds in the coming weeks.

Pause

It’s with a bit of sadness that we announce we’re taking a break here at OMGreds. No, no, not an April Fools prank this time around, we’re being quite honest. With all the excitement around the start of spring training and Reds games at GABP seemingly right around the corner, it’s a little tough to announce this now, but it’s for the best. To state our reason simply, it’s to focus on family and simplify our daily lives. We’re certain you understand.

This is post is titled “Pause”, and we do mean that. We may be back. We may not. We may be back in a different form. Who knows. We don’t. At least right now we don’t. What we do know is we’re still pretty crazy for our Reds and you’ll see us around GABP all season long.

A few things of note:

Twitter: We’ll be keeping @OMGreds open and you’ll see us pop in on occasion.

We started this blog back in January, 2008 to chronicle our obsession with the Reds, our trips to the ballpark, poke fun at our favorite Reds of the ’80s and just raise a small ruckus for laughs and comradere. To make the small dent in the Reds blogosphere that we have was a heck of a surprise and a whole lot of fun. We’ve enjoyed every minute of it more than you’ll ever know.

Thank you to all the folks that we have met over the past few years. We’ll certainly be seeing you again.

We want to give a huge shout out to our skillets at Red Reporter, Redleg Nation, Chris Sabo’s Goggles, WHACKreds, Reds Country, Blog Red Machine, C. Trent Rosecrans, Big League Stew and any other blogs and websites that has linked to us, given us a shout or corrected our spelling.

Many, many thanks to our homies at the Reds. They are some of the nicest folks we have ever met and have been so great to us. Michael Anderson, Lisa Braun, Jamie Ramsey, Karen Forgus, Charley Frank, Jarrod Rollins… and at the Reds Hall of Fame & Museum, Rick Walls, Chris Eckes, Chelsea Theaker and Colin Ethier. Also, a huge shout to Brian Blinn with the Reds Summer Wiffle Classic. Thank you so much.

Again a huge THANK YOU to everyone from all of us.

- Dan, Dave, Paul, Rob and Ronson

#RedsTweetUp

TWEET!

Nesting

OMGreds is amongst the “Celebrity Tweeters” that will be on-hand at the Reds very first “Reds Tweetup” on Tuesday, September 28th. While our celebrity status is to be debated, one thing is for sure – you better be there. If not for any other reason than the outstanding ticket deal on some of the best seats in the house. For $11, you get yourself a ticket in section 145, right next to the stacks in the Sun/Moon deck. Like Mo Egger, we believe the Sun/Moon deck is the best section of the yard. These seats are regularly $22, so jump on it. More details at www.reds.com/tweetup

What a better way to celebrate the Reds NL Central Championship? While we want them to clinch as soon as possible, it would be pretty dern cool to have them wrap up the title at home with a win. Either way, OMGreds will take it!

Joining The OMG for all the Tweet Up fun/games will be: Red Reporter, Redleg Nation, Mo Egger, Lance McAlister, The Reds’ Lisa Braun, and Fox 19′s Rontina McCann. Mark Sheldon and Jamie Ramsey will be hangin’ fancy up in the press box, but joining in via the Tweet.

#ProTip: If you’re an iPhone user like myself you know that AT&T reception at GABP is absolute poop. While on 3G, I haven’t been able to Tweet during most this season. If you switch your network to EDGE while at the ballpark, you can actually get a signal. Good luck!

BTW, @OMGreds is our handle. Hope to see/meet you at the Tweet Up.
