Nats new uniforms to go on sale Nov. 11

As reported in this very space, in an item that almost approached the traditional journalistic form of news-gathering, the Nationals will unveil their new uniforms on Nov. 10. The team sent out a release on Wednesday, announcing the details. There are several noteworthy nuggets.

* "The glitz and glamour of the fashion runway is coming to Nationals Park," is how the release begins.

* The fashion show is scheduled to include Tyler Clippard, Ian Desmond, Pudge, Drew Storen, Ryan Zimmerman and Jordan Zimmermann. Mike Rizzo "is also expected to make an appearance." All names subject to change.

* This is an "invitation-only affair." I'm pretty sure I'm invited.

* The following day, Nov. 11, the jerseys will be for sale exclusively at the Nats Park team store, where there will also be autograph signings from 11:30 until 2. That will apparently be D.C.'s only retail location selling the jerseys until Nov. 17.

* Customers will receive 15 percent off the price of any new Nats jersey when they trade in any existing MLB jersey at the team store through Dec. 1.

I hope they have sufficient sales staff on hand on Nov. 11 to handle the crush of both fans trying to buy new jerseys at once.

"This is an "invitation-only affair." I'm pretty sure I'm invited."

Why, did they misspell your name as Mike Wise on the invitation?

This seems to confirm that the uniform changes are restricted to the jerseys (and pants), and at least one of the two existing caps will survive the re-design.

I wonder how much they will charge for the autographs? When they have fanfest they have take pictures of you standing with the player(s) and then they tell you to go see the photo online where you can purchase it for a ridiculous fee. My guess is they will charge for autographs.

I believe it was rumored that the gold would be removed from the color scheme which would require a change (very very slight) to all the current hats. Gold is used in the MLB logo on the back. Nerd alert!
