Nats Show Off New Patriotic Uniform for 2017

Washington Nationals New Uniform 2017

The Washington Nationals will have a new option for when they’re feeling extra patriotic during the upcoming 2017 season.

Officially unveiled last night at their Winter Fest fan gathering, the new jersey is identical to their existing home shirt except one obvious difference… the curly “W” has his stars-and-stripes pyjamas on. Explained another way, we now have a white version of the blue alternate from years past.

While not confirmed it’s expected this will replace that blue jersey and slide on in as a new alternate jersey for the capital’s senior circuit lads. Multiple reports from the event suggested there were references to the blue jerseys being “too hot” during those summer months when patriotism is in.

The new look should remind uniform fans of the Fourth of July jerseys the league had teams wear in recent seasons, it’s close but not quite the same — at least in 2016 that set didn’t make use of the stars-and-stripes pattern seen here, and the player jersey numbers on this set will not be changed from their standard home set as they typically are for MLB’s theme/holiday package.

Two new caps were also introduced — one red, one blue. Both are expected to be worn with this set, then when’s and why’s yet to be known. These caps really invoke feelings of the Fourth of July sets as both designs (nearly) identical to these have previously been part of the Nats’ collection.
