The New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, and San Francisco Giants do not display their players' names on their home uniforms. While the Red Sox and Giants have their players' names on their away jerseys, the Yankees do not display them on their road jerseys.

The New York Yankees started putting numbers on the back of there player's jerseys in the 1920s so that fans can easily identify the players' name by referring to a scorecard that identified the players. Soon, all teams started putting numbers on their players' jerseys. Names didn't come on the players' jerseys until much later.

When the National Football League and the American Football League merged in 1970, all players began wearing their names on their uniform jerseys. Before the merger, only the AFL teams wore jerseys with names.

College football, as a whole, doesn't decide on when to do anything. The institutions themselves decide whether or not to place names on the back of jerseys, and to this day, some teams have names and some do not.
