The Rays started this in 2012, but with a different color scheme. They wore these as recently as June:

The new ones are just the road variation, I suppose. But they’re a bit better simply because they’re a tad less of a direct Padres ripoff. Still not great, but when your team has as little history as the Rays do, you gotta try things.
