New Washington Nationals uniforms for the 2011 season are set to be unveiled at a Nationals Park fashion show next month.
Invitations were sent out this week by the Washington Nationals for the VIP event, which will be held at the ball park on the evening of November 10.
Nationals players Tyler Clippard, Ian Desmond, Ivan Rodriguez, Drew Storen, Ryan Zimmerman and Jordan Zimmermann will show off the new uniforms as part of a fashion show for invited guests.
The new jerseys will be available for purchase beginning Thursday, November 11 exclusively at the Nationals Park Team Store, with players on hand to sign autographs beginning at 11:30am.
It’s been two years since the team last announced new Nationals uniforms. At that time, blue alternate jerseys were introduced for the launch of the new ball park, and a script “Washington” replaced the block lettering on the team’s road uniforms.
It’s been speculated that a similar change is in line for the home uniforms, with the block “Nationals” lettering disappearing in favor of script. Personally, I hope it’s not true, having been a fan of the block lettering since it was first introduced as part of the Nationals logo in November of 2004.
The new threads will make a nice birthday present for racing president Teddy Roosevelt, who is set to celebrate his 152nd birthday tomorrow.
New shoes didn’t help Teddy win in 2010. Perhaps another uniform change will…
