Nats to unveil uniform changes Nov. 10


Say goodbye to this look. (By Jonathan Newton - TWP)


After months of rumors and speculation, the Nats are set to unveil significant changes to their uniforms on Nov. 10 at Nats Park. The team will hold a fashion show event at the stadium, and will show off at least three styles of uniforms. I've heard that, among other things, the gold accents and gold trim will be purged from the new designs, and the block NATIONALS on the home jersey will be replaced with a script Nationals. There will be other changes as well.

I'm pretty sure these changes will be greeted with huzzahs by the uniform nerds among us, although they also mean that a lot of people will be wearing outdated Strasburg shirts next season.

Expect an official announcement about the uniform event in coming days. (And see the VIP invite below.) If you have any more information about the changes or a copy of the invite, please do let me know. And yes, my application for a full-time fashion job with the Style section is in the mail.

(More off-color speculation is available at Ballparkguys.)

(Some nice insight on the changes from WFY.)

Loved the gold. and block-lettering. Wished the curly-W had gotten purged, rather than the block-lettering.

The original alternate DC red, blue, white, and gold hat was the greatest they've had. It goes nicely with the block Nationals logo.

I'm skeptical. I like the unis. The hat has become iconic somehow, too.

Have there really been months of rumors and speculation? I find this hard to believe Dan...You could not have noticed anything was going on outside of what various local celebrities thought about the Haynesworth Saga...although I couldn't either and maybe that's why I missed it.

Maybe instead of getting random sports personalities' thoughts on Haynesworth, we should now switch to getting Haynesworth's thoughts on other unrelated sports topics. What does Haynesworth think about the uniform change?

I think the curly W will stick around since that is similar to the old Senators as well - but the clock lettering had to go.

Posted by: greg421 | October 26, 2010 1:39 PM | Report abuse

At this point, I think the Curly W has become identified with the team and its brand. Not only is it a link back to the previous Washington team, but it is all over the hats, the brochures, the print ads, even the Curly W Pretzels at the ballpark. That doesn't even get into Charlie's "Another curly W is in the books" on the radio broadcast after each Nationals victory. It stays.

I do not mind losing the gold trim. Red, white, and blue seem like natural colors for teams in the Nation's Capital anyway, so I have no problem with embracing that.

I want to see what they come up with. Perhaps this will be better than the "whatever design MLB could come up with quickly" the club has used since its start here in DC.

I've always thought the home jerseys were totally generic and unimaginative so I'm all for it...

Posted by: mbm1 | October 26, 2010 1:47 PM | Report abuse

I seriously doubt that the Curly W will be going anywhere. Also, I would not be surprised to see the red home jersey with white Curly W remain. They seemed to wear that one about 80% of the time at home this past season, even though it was officially the "alternate" home jersey. (Perhaps a signal that the home whites were on their way out?) The road uniform that they already switched from block to script lettering a couple of years ago will probably not change much either. Perhaps they'll mix in some more red with all the blue on that one.

The big question of course will be do they redo the top of the scoreboard to eliminate the Fuddrucker's font "Nationals" up there, or leave it as an historical vestige?

Posted by: FeelWood | October 26, 2010 1:47 PM | Report abuse

Thank goodness the Fudrucker's font is going away. You could tell that Bud Selig and MLB came up with that one.

Does this also mean that the logo is changing too?

We can only hope.

And thanks for the link to Ballpark Guys, I was beginning to forget why I got myself banned from there a few years ago...

Posted by: CapsNut | October 26, 2010 1:47 PM | Report abuse

I'm sure the main change will be to change the home uniform to match the away. It'll be a script Nationals.

Go to nationals.com and look at the "Natstown" logo at the top of the page for a preview of how they'll do the "n".

Good riddance to the block lettering because it didn't match the W.

Posted by: nationalcoholic | October 26, 2010 1:52 PM | Report abuse

I expect the curly W to stay, and I cannot wait for the block lettering to disappear. I can only imagine that the team is moving to script similar to what was on the road jerseys this season. The website featured the same script all season in the "NatsTown" logo.

Now if the team would just mandate the use of stirrups and higher pants (ala Strasburg), the unis will be complete.

YES! These sound great. I love script on uniforms and can't wait to get a new t-shirt this season that matches!

I also wouldn't mind seeing some sort of homage (but NOT an exact replica, please) to the DC flag on there somewhere.

Posted by: nationalcoholic | October 26, 2010 1:55 PM | Report abuse

Well, my replica jersey is now officially obsolete. Will the team be paying for its replacement? I really liked the white unis and hope we don't become one of those teams that change everything every few years. I want something timeless and iconic like the Yankees, Red Sox, and Dodgers.

Not surprised at this, and happy to see the Fuddrucker's font go.

But what will they do with the big neon "Nationals" sign in that font above the scoreboard.

And yes, I'm sure the curly-W is here to stay. The motif is used all over the ballpark and is connected with the Senators v.2.

My own favorite was the original Senators home uniform with the block W, but there's no way we'll see that except maybe on nostalgia uniform days.

Posted by: Meridian1 | October 26, 2010 2:13 PM | Report abuse

I am still wearing Senators stuff all the time anyway.

But happy for the change, I would like to see them use the old Logo with the outline of the capitol dome.

There will be at least three uniforms, a home white, a road gray, and a home alternate (usually colored), as required by MLB. There will probably be one of those godawful patriotic ones (nothing is worse than the "camo" that some teams wear).

My guess is there will be some version of red, white, and blue for both home and away, so it doesn't look like a completely different team on the road. They probably keep one color hat, with the other color for the alternate, like most teams do. Though they could combine them, blue with red bill for example.

Posted by: Section506 | October 26, 2010 2:50 PM | Report abuse

A patriotic uniform could look solid if done right. But a team that plays country music thinking its patriotic is never gonna do it right.

But just put them in American Flag pants like Napoleon Dynamite

Posted by: Kev29 | October 26, 2010 2:53 PM | Report abuse

If they want the hats to be different, but keep the curly W, they could go with the mid-60s Senators look, which featured four pinstripes on a blue hat (I'd prefer blue stripes on a red hat, maybe with a blue bill).

Posted by: jcj5y | October 26, 2010 2:59 PM | Report abuse

Wonder if the team might add blue pinstripes, sort of reminiscent of the '68 Senators, the year they switched to red as the predominant color? (The following year, they eliminated pinstripes entirely, the first time a Washington team hadn't worn pinstripes since early in the 20th century, perhaps pre-Walter Johnson.)

As long as the pinstripes are blue...red would be too imitative of a certain team out of Philadelphia. And, as we all know, a certain Bryce Harper loves pinstripes.

Posted by: VPaterno | October 26, 2010 3:04 PM | Report abuse

I've also heard that they might be ditching the solid blue away hats (and the blue socks/undershirts). We'll see.

I'll be happy when they ditch the horrid block letters for script.

Interesting back story on how the mismatched uniforms came to be...

Too many pinstripes in this division - Phillies, Mets and Marlins. Of course the Senators wore pinstripes before all three of 'em (1912).

Simple white with red and blue trim and a script Nationals will do fine.

Posted by: Kev29 | October 26, 2010 3:26 PM | Report abuse

I tend to think that they won't use pinstripes on the unis for the reason Kev29 cites---too many already in the Division. And while I don't think that would preclude using stripes on the hat, it probably suggests that they'll just keep the red curly W hats (I think the blue ones will go too---they don't really work with the new road jerseys).

The gold trim makes red lettering look orange from a distance, and I don't want anything that looks orange on a Washington baseball jersey (or my t-shirt).

I wondered if the script "Natstown" was part of a transition to script "Nationals." Should look good.

About freakin' time - the gold accent was god awful - red, white and blue, it's not that complicated. And please, revert back to the old school senators look - much more appealing. Living in NJ, I see SO MUCH good Phillies, Yanks and Mets merch and the Nats have just pooped the bed when it comes to this aspect of fan outreach. Keep the Curly W.

They should've named them the Senators from day 1 and design the uniforms exactly the way they used to be in the 70's. They have entirely too much going on with the uniforms. Block lettering, script lettering on the road, Curly W on the hats, Block DC on the hats. Decide on something, stick with it and concentrate on winning.

Look at the Yankees uniforms. They've been that way since inception. They have no names on the back of the uniforms but strangely enough, everybody knows their names. Go figure.

The Nats' average record over the last five seasons is 66-96. They need several new starting pitchers, a new CF who isn't a rally-killing idiot, a new (or re-signed) 1B who hits for power, new owners who aren't happy to make a profit while putting a mediocre product on the field, and a new manager who doesn't overmanage. New uniforms are WAAAAY down the list of priorities. Talk about putting lipstick on a pig...

Normally, I'd agree with that (having cleverly deleted the reference to fellow poster). But in this case the new home jersey, along with the road jersey change, was a long time coming. Getting rid of the awful uniforms that MLB stuck us with is righting a wrong. Now, let's win.

First thing they should do is change the name to what it should be - The Senators. That would be more like it. Get rid of the DC crap. Bring back the old Senators look. I remeber when my Phightin Phils changed their uniforms in the 70's when they opened the Vet. They were OK but I was really happy when they went back to the old style (early 90's) with some nice updating. I like their Sunday uniforms that look like the ones they wore in the 40's. Main thing is bring back the Senators!!!

You don't think the team can work on player personnel matters AND have the marketing department assist in developing new home uniforms? The two priorities aren't mutually exclusive. I don't think Mike Rizzo is drawing up uniform designs with his crayons at the moment.

Amazingly, the Minnesota Twins came up with a new stadium and uniforms last year and managed to win 94 games - so I don't think it's impossible.

Well, acutally I meant love for the Grays on this board and on Nationals Journal. The Expos franchise is actually more on track than the city and the fans are. We laugh at the three statues in front of the stadium, but at least they DO accurately reflect the three franchises comprising DC baseball history -- Walter Johnson of the Nationals, Josh Gibson of the Grays, and Frank Howard of the Senators. But other than that, the "love" for the Grays is just about "separate but equal." Once or twice a season, the team wears some throwback uniform commemorating the Grays. Once or twice. Whereas the team name and the name Nationals Park commemorate the first franchise everyday all the time, and the ubiquitous curly W commmorates the 60s Senators. Every single day. Every day compared to once or twice a season. That's fair? That's just about no love for the Grays, regardless of the ring of honor and the token throwback uniforms! Again, the Expos franchise is doing a better job of remembering and honoring the Grays than the current teams' fans are.

Just ditch the Nationals name, for crying out loud, the Senators name, the curly W, etc. EXCEPT for those token throwback uniform days, and start over with something new.
