Ok, I’ll admit it. I was a little scared when I heard we were going to have some new uniforms this season. You see, I’m a bit of a baseball traditionalist.
But being the nosy Front Office person that I am, I managed to get a sneak-peek of the new uniforms, prior to their official unveiling tomorrow (Thursday).
Some lucky Red Sox Nation citizens will be the first to see the uniforms, which will be modeled by Manny Delcarmen, and Terry Francona. The Red Sox Nation citizens were chosen at random from a drawing held earlier this week. Just one more reason if you aren’t a citizen of Red Sox Nation, you should probably look into it for this year. Ok, sorry about that gratuitous plug, but it’s Mike Ivins/Boston Red Sox true..there are a lot of cool . benefits/perks to the program.
Also in attendance at the event will be Red Sox Nation President Jerry Remy, and Red Sox Hall of Famer Jim Rice.
Note: While I’m tempted to go off on it now, I’ll leave my “how the heck is Jim Rice not in the Baseball Hall of Fame?” rant for another day…
The unveiling event starts at 6pm (open by invitation only). This means you will probably get a chance to see the new uniforms on the news tomorrow night (for those living in our local market). For those of you living outside of the area, you can always check back here, or on redsox.com for the pics.
So, my question for all of you is this…
If you had the ability to make a new Sox uniform, or change the existing ones, what would they look like?
Also, there will be “design changes” to our team logos. I’ve seen these changes as well, and can confidently say, you have nothing to worry about there.
I’ll be sure to post photos of the new uniforms and redesigned logos as soon as I can, so stay tuned!
All the best from a very busy Front Office,
PS – According to reports, CC Sabathia is headed to the Yankees in a 7-year, $160 million deal. And as great as a pitcher as he has been, I still feel really good about our team, and especially the way we have been grooming our young pitchers.
