I was undecided about the new look or the need to change the jersey. What was wrong with the old one? Is this being done just to increase sales in the souvenir shop?
Then I read this quote from Travelers GM Pete Laven:
"We were thinking about red or blue when considering pinstripes so I walked down the ballpark concourse to the museum and was immediately drawn to the 1937 Travs team composite photo. That team wore navy-blue pinstripes, which I thought looked great. There's something about pinstripes that impart this classic old-time look. I consider the Travelers a classic baseball franchise and the pinstripes help add that feel to the uniforms."
Hard to argue with that.
What is not hard to argue with is throwing on a shoulder patch of "the famous Halo logo" of the Los Angeles Angels. Not classic or necessary.
A new road uniform will be debut next year. Will it dump "North" above "Little Rock" or return it to "Arkansas"?
