LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. — The Gwinnett Stripers baseball team announced changes to their uniforms and field on Thursday.
The Triple-A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves is redoing their field with new sod for the first time in over a decade. The other major change you'll see on the field is their neon green batting practice hat which highlights a new “GWIN” logo. The new logo, created in house, is “a mark that displays the navy, waving waters of Lake Lanier meeting the white sky,” says Striper General Manager Adam English.
The team also revealed their new jersey which is a simplified version of one the team wore last year. The 2020 version removes piping from the neck and buttons so that the Stripers logo is set against the navy pinstripes. The new uniform also features an Atlanta Braves patch on the sleeve of the shirt.
The team will also don a new alternate cap that is two-toned and has a worm on a hook. English says the design is meant to evoke their parent club’s “iconic blue-sleeved feather tops worn during the 1970s.”
English says the new uniform will be worn on the field during their season opener on April 19th.
