Today, the Kansas City Royals are honoring the Negro Leagues with their annual Salute to the Negro Leagues day. As such, everybody at Kauffman Stadium is dressed to the nines, and this includes the home team itself, as the Royals have elected to wear Kansas City Monarchs throwbacks uniforms.
In addition, as you can see, the team is also wearing helmets with a matte finish, which is definitely a nice touch.
In addition, there’s a special patch on the jerseys; One that’s meant to honor MLB Hall of Famer and former KC Monarch, Ernie Banks!
It’s always cool to see cities with a history of Negro League baseball honor those teams and players from yesteryear, and what’s going on in Kansas City today is no different. Plus the uniforms definitely look good as well, so that’s just a bonus. What do you guys think, though?
