As anticipated, the Washington Nationals revealed their new uniforms Wednesday night at a Nationals Park fashion show featuring members of the team.
The new Nationals Uniforms offered few surprises, with a new emphasis on the Curly W logo, and many other small changes including the elimination of the gold trim around the lettering and numbers.
Focus on the Curly W as the major identity of the team is a good move, but lost in most of the coverage is the elimination of the block “Nationals” that has adorned the team’s jersey’s since its inaugural season.
I’m going to miss it, but it’s a good PR move, in that it should help the team finally put the 2009 “Natinals” misspelling incident behind them forever.
Great comprehensive coverage of the event over at Nats News Network.
