The Kansas City Royals today announced that the club has received permission to continue to wear the gold trim jerseys and hats that the players wore in the opening two games of 2016. The gold trimmed uniforms, emblematic of winning the World Series the previous season, will be worn every home Friday for the remainder of the regular season beginning with the Friday, April 22 game against the Baltimore Orioles.
"These uniforms are representative of a huge accomplishment for our franchise and after seeing the reception they received, not only from our fans, but equally as important, our players, we decided to seek permission to at least wear them periodically during the 2016 season," said Kevin Uhlich, Royals' Senior Vice President of Business Operations. "We'd like to thank Major League Baseball, Majestic and New Era for their efforts in allowing us the opportunity to enjoy these one-of-a-kind uniforms throughout this year."
As a refresher, the specially designed Majestic jerseys and caps from New Era feature the script 'Royals' embossed in gold with blue trim and blue numbers, with the players' name in blue and their number embossed in gold on the back. The Royal blue caps feature a gold 'KC' with white trim on the front with the 2015 World Series Champions logo on the side of the cap.
