Cat is out of the bag and this year's conference season is in the books. But after the dust had settled, and after the first weeks of spring training were completed, teams are starting to settle into their new look. And that's not only with the on-field uniforms and their color patterns but also with the uniforms and color schemes that were used throughout the off-season.

But before we get into the new uniform designs that are out there for 2013, we're taking a look back at the 2012 versions. We'll start with the home and road uniforms, look at the alternate road uniforms and then take a look at the jerseys that were worn in spring training.

If there's any uniform that doesn't look exactly the same for each of the 31 MLB teams, it's the home jersey.

Home uniforms

It seems that MLB teams are willing to experiment with new uniform designs, but for the most part, they stick with the design they used a few years ago. This year, the home jersey is the standard one that MLB teams have been wearing for several years now. In fact, the only major change from 2012 was that the blue trim and numbering were removed from the sleeves.

Blue numbers on the road uniform can be a polarizing design. On one hand, you've got the home teams that wear the blue numbers to help set them apart from the road uniforms, while others prefer to not to see the blue numbers at all.

That being said, if you're in that second camp, you'll be happy to see the uniform move away from the blue numbers.

The new jersey has a slightly more modern look to it, but that doesn't mean that it's a departure from last year's look. This year, the blue stripe around the bottom of the jersey is much wider than it was last year. The shoulder padding and sleeve stripes also seem to be narrower than they were in previous years.

The only really significant change from last year is that the home uniform now features blue numbers on the sleeves. However, those numbers have been moved to the end of the sleeves, where they were previously on the white home jersey.

The road uniform features a lot of minor changes. The numbers are placed in a V-shape down the middle of the jersey, with the jersey's sleeve design and pocket on the top and bottom of the jersey. A smaller blue number is placed on the sleeve cuff to go with the rest of the numbers.

The home uniform will be worn only once at home this season, but the road uniform will be worn more than any other. Each team will be wearing it 15 times, the most of any uniform.

For the first time, MLB introduced a game-specific alternate uniform for every team, and the home uniform is also a "game-specific uniform." This is the first time that MLB has ever announced a game-specific uniform in a year that the home jersey hasn't.

The Cardinals will wear a white home jersey with a red number on the sleeves on May 6 when they play the Astros. The white uniform was first worn by the Cardinals last year, but this is the first time that it's been worn for the start of the regular season.
