Atlanta Braves Unveil New Alternate Jersey

The Atlanta Braves yesterday unveiled their new alternate home jersey two weeks after it was first leaked by an online sports apparel shop.

This new jersey is cream coloured and inspired by the design the Braves wore for their first two seasons in Atlanta, on the sleeve is a new alternate logo which features two crossed tomahawks on a blue circle. ┬áThe blue circle reads “1876 Atlanta Braves”, the 1876 symbolizes the season the Braves franchise was established in Boston.

  • Home games on Friday, they will wear their red jerseys with white pants and alternate cap
  • Home games on Saturday – Sunday, the Braves will wear the new throwback alternate uniforms
  • Road games will be either the road greys or the navy blue alternate, it’s the choice of the starting pitcher

    If you’re going to put the chief mascot on the sleeve, put the tomahawk at the bottom of “Braves”. Otherwise the two tomahawks on the sleeve are just fine.

    Wait, the starting pitcher gets to choose? That’s so cool! The uniforms are beautiful, btw!

  5. Aaron says:

    Maybe the NHL, NFL and CFL could give the goaltenders and quarterbacks the same choice. That would be twice as cool. Corny, though!

    You guys didn’t know pitchers could choose their uniforms?
