Just in time for opening day, Boston-based web developer Mark Willis has finished his three-month-long project of envisioning soccer jerseys for all 30 Major League Baseball teams. And the results are pretty cool. Much like the above mentioned American football and hockey shirts, Willis has customized each shirt with local flair and matched them with local jersey sponsors – e.g., US Steel for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Chrysler for the Detroit Tigers.
