The Chicago White Sox like the rest of Major League Baseball will look a little different when they finally take the field in March to begin their 2016 spring training exhibition schedule.
That is because New Era and Majestic have teamed up with Major League Baseball to roll out a unified fresh look for every team this spring training.
The White Sox will don a black cap with the teams newly reintroduced “batterman” logo on the front in white. Additionally the hat will feature an orange and blue interstate sign with the letters “AZ” in the main body, referring to the state of Arizona where the White Sox report to spring training.
Teams in the Grapefruit League in Florida will have the same log on the side with the letters “FL” in the main body, of course for the state of Florida where those teams report.
The Jersey will be black in color with the traditional gray and white striping at the end of the sleeve like the regularly worn alternate jersey during the regular season, as well as the signature stylized “SOX” logo on the left sleeve. Not to be out done, the newley introduced interstate sign spring training patch will be donned by every club on the right sleeve of their jersey.
Overall the new uniforms are pretty sharp, especially the incorporation of the “batterman” logo on the front of the cap. The tweaking and reintroduction of the logo last season as an alternate uniform was received a great reception by White Sox fans including myself. I really hope that they entertain the idea of the all black cap with the white “batterman” logo as an option during the regular season moving forward.
