2015 TACOMA RAINIERS LOGO AND UNIFORM SET,, For fans of rebranding (and baseball), check out the Tacoma Rainiers' new uniforms, which look awesome.

Of course their newest addition is no different. As a fitness enthusiast I wanted to check out the new watch for its fitness benefits. And instead I spent 20 minutes on the site being drawn into a story. I think the watch is cool for what if offers and LOVE the way they're marketing it. - Scott
