According to a reliable source, SportsLogos.Net has learned that the San Francisco Giants will be bringing back a slightly updated version of their 1980’s road jersey as a road alternate jersey for the 2012 season.
The Giants will become the only current Major League Baseball team to wear two distinct grey jerseys regularly and would be the first MLB team to pull off this feat in a single season since the 2006-2008 Texas Rangers wore a sleeveless grey alternate for select road games.
San Francisco originally adopted this style, the interlocked “SF” on the left breast with black piping, in time for the 1983 season to replace their orange road jerseys which had been worn the six previous seasons. This grey road jersey was worn by several division championship teams at Candlestick Park, including the 1989 National League Championship club. The jersey was retired at the end of the 1993 season, a season in which the Giants won 103 games and still failed to qualify for the post-season.
