Seattle Mariners blend past and present in new alternate uniform

Cream jersey and pants with royal blue and gold will be worn on Sundays at home

The Seattle Mariners today unveiled a new alternate uniform that will be worn during Sunday home games at Safeco Field.

The new jersey and pants are a classic cream color. The lettering and logo are the same as the current uniforms but in the original Mariners colors. The "Mariners" lettering is royal blue with gold trim outlined in royal. The button placket and sleeves are trimmed in royal, and there is a Mariners nautical "compass rose" patch in royal and gold on the left sleeve.

In a nod to vintage baseball uniforms, there are no players' names on the backs of the jerseys; just large block numbers in royal with gold trim. The look is completed with a royal blue cap with gold Mariners "S" and compass rose baseball logo and royal blue socks with gold stripes.

"The royal blue and gold colors of our franchise's inaugural uniforms are blended with the lettering and logo of our current identity in a unique design that pays homage to our club's history," said Kevin Martinez, Vice President of Marketing for the Seattle Mariners. "This new alternate uniform is perfect for sunny Sunday afternoons at Safeco Field."

The uniforms were unveiled today at Safeco Field with Nelson Cruz, James Paxton, Charlie Furbush and Taijuan Walker as models.

In addition to the new alternate Sunday uniforms, the Mariners also announced minor changes to the lettering of the home and road jerseys. The words "Mariners" (for home whites) and "Seattle" (for road grays) in navy letters will be trimmed in silver outlined in Northwest green. "We've simply reversed the order of the silver and green. The change is subtle," said Martinez, "but the modified color arrangement presents a much stronger and crisper on-field look."

The Mariners two other alternate jerseys, navy and Northwest green, are unchanged.
