The Atlanta Braves introduced their long-presumed home weekend alternates Monday morning, trotting out Chipper Jones, Brian McCann and Dan Uggla in the retro-ish cream uniforms. The cap remains the same -- the primary difference is the jersey, which you can get a good look at here. I think they're pretty good, if you've found yourself wondering what I think.
Below, some pics via Talking Chop of players trying them out, and a breakdown by Scott Coleman of when they will and will not be worn. It's important to know your regulations.
- When playing at home Monday through Thursday, the team will wear their tradition white uniforms.
- When playing at home on Friday, they will wear their red jerseys with white pants and alternative cap. This used to be the attire for Sunday home games.
- On Saturdays and Sundays at Turner Field, the Braves will wear their new uniforms. They will wear their traditional home ball cap.
- On the road, the starting pitcher will still have his choice between wearing either the grey or blue uniforms. It seems like many of the starting pitchers now prefer the blue uniforms that were released a few years ago, but that may just be selective memory on my part.
