Houston Astros owner Jim Crane dropped a few hints regarding what the new Astros uniforms will look like in 2013 and from those hints it sounds like we’re in for some blue and orange goodness.
From the Houston Chronicle:
“We’ll blend some of the new with the history of the team and some of the colors in the past,” Crane said, “We’ve selected it all and we’re about to submit it. We’re due in on the 30th, so everything’s set to go to baseball for approval.”
“We’ve gone to great lengths in getting everyone involved including the guy who washes the uniform, the locker room guys, the players, the fans, everybody involved in the process.”
The popular opinion amongst those I’ve spoken with seems to be a modernization of the uniforms from the late 1960s, their first uniforms as the Astros. The Astros just wore these uniforms as a throwback last Friday vs Texas.
My prediction? Based on Crane’s words above I’m going to say we’ll see navy blue and orange colour scheme, the current shooting star on the caps, and a modernized script from the past. Hopefully there’s an orange cap in the set.
Start the countdown to the off-season!
