Last month in this StoryStream, we posted images of the new Atlanta Braves alternate jersey that had been leaked by SportsLogos.net.
Monday, the Braves officially announced the jerseys, and photos are posted at our Braves site, Talking Chop, modeled by Chipper Jones, Brian McCann and Dan Uggla. Talking Chop has a few details:
They will apparently wear this on the weekends, shifting the red uni to Fridays.
The “red uni” referred to is the one modeled by Chipper Jones in this photo, and has generally been worn on Sundays by the Braves in recent years.
The Braves website has more on the jersey:
Along with all Saturday and Sunday home games, the new alternate uniform could be worn on some special occasions.
This is the club’s first home uniform change since it introduced alternate red jerseys before the start of the 2005 season. The plan is to continue wearing the red jersey for all Friday night games in Atlanta. But the Braves will likely stick with their traditional white uniforms when they host the Brewers for their home opener on Friday, April 13.
