MLB Unveils 2016 Special Holiday Uniforms
Recently, major league sports teams nationwide have put forth initiatives to celebrate several international and national holidays. The NBA mandated all teams celebrate the Chinese Lunar New Year, and the MLB recently announced its plans to utilize special holiday uniforms during the 2016 season, according to ESPN.
While in past years the MLB has released its holiday and special-event uniform designs on a rolling schedule, this year, all the uniform designs were released at once.
Special-event jerseys will highlight the following holidays:
The jerseys will feature pink text and numbers, and the caps will feature pink team logos and top-stitching on dark gray fabric.
Teams will celebrate with camouflage lettering and numbering on their jerseys, in addition to matching camouflage caps.
The jerseys will feature blue lettering and numbering, and the dark gray caps also will feature blue logos and stitching.
Fourth of July
The jerseys will feature an American flag patch on the sleeve with a star-themed pattern for the lettering and numbering. The Blue Jays' uniform will showcase the maple leaf instead of stars.
There also will be special jerseys for the All-Star workout, Home Run Derby and All-Star Game.
