In what will be the club’s 111th season as a member of the American League, the Indians will have two versions of a home uniform to go with two versions for the road.
The biggest addition, obviously, comes in the form of that bright red hat pictured above that will go with the old-school cream uniforms which the team rolled out in 2008. Also worth noting is that the road uni’s will now have a block style of “Cleveland” instead of the script style which the team has worn for years. The teams says that this change is paying homage to the block style they wore back in 1901 when the Indians became “charter members” of the American League.
Interestingly enough, the navy jersey pictured far left is considered the “alternate” kit for the upcoming season. Expect to see plenty of that grey uni with the block “C” cap. And purists, fear not. Regardless of whether or not Wahoo is displayed on the caps, he will be prominently featured on the left sleeve of all uniforms.
Now, about that third baseman…
