While the Kansas State baseball team’s season came to an abrupt end in March amid the coronavirus outbreak, the Wildcats have something to look forward when they hit the diamond next spring after the program unveiled retro-inspired uniforms on Monday afternoon.
Much like the throwback uniforms worn by the basketball program last season, the baseball team’s white Nike pullover top notably features a lavender and purple retro color scheme. It also prominently displays the word “Cats” across the chest, mimicking the Wildcats’ standard home uniform.
The jersey will be paired with Kansas State’s purple Nike Aero True hat that includes a gray interlocking “KS” on the front. It’s unclear if there is any design on the white pants, though we’re hopeful the look is complete with a lavender and purple striping pattern down the side, as well.
The Kansas State baseball program has reached the NCAA Tournament a total of four times, including three straight trips to the postseason from 2009-11. The Wildcats’ most recent appearance came in 2013, when the program won their first Big XII title and set a school record for wins in a season with 45.
Kansas State reached the NCAA Corvallis Super Regional that spring, but fell to Oregon State in three games. The Wildcats have had just one winning season since then.
