The Kansas City Royals have unveiled a new home alternate uniform, officially announced via their social media accounts yesterday morning.
White with gold accents, the new uniform will be worn for each Friday home game in 2017 and likely seasons beyond. Unlike the gold-themed uniform worn this past season, this is an official alternate uniform for the team, while that was a special “one-time-only” uniform to celebrate their championship.
There are differences between this set and the 2016 version, aside from the official designation.
