Just when you thought the Diamondbacks couldn’t possibly have more uniforms, what do they go out and do?
You guessed it: Add more uniforms.
Yes. The team announced in a series of tweets yesterday that the team will wear these four jerseys for four special occasions later this season.
They’re going with pink jerseys on Mother’s day:
Some sweet camo on Memorial Day:
Blue for Father’s Day:
And last but not least, red, white and blue for the Fourth of July.
"On the Fourth of July, we’ll again sport red, white and blue stars and stripes-decorated caps and jerseys."
This announcement was done as all MLB teams announced similar uniforms yesterday. The league is now going with specialty uniforms to honor the special occasions. Some teams have done this in years past; the Padres and Mets have each had camo uniforms to honor the armed forces. But this will be the first time MLB has announced all of these jerseys at the same time.
This will bring the Diamondbacks’ total number of jerseys used this season to 12. That’s one for every 13.5 games played.
