MISSOURI (KFVS) - Cardinals baseball fans are in for a treat during the 2019 season.
At 11 a.m. on Nov. 19 Cardinals spokespersons announced the team will be bringing back blue uniforms.
Watch the announcement below:
The team has been teasing an announcement for the 2019 season for a while.
“We are very excited about the new powder blue ‘Saturday Road’ uniform,” said Cardinals President Bill DeWitt III, who led the design efforts. “I know it will be popular with both players and fans - particularly those who remember the great teams of the ’70s and ’80s who wore this same color on the road.”
The Cardinals will be the 21st Major League Baseball team with at least two alternate jerseys. The road alternate uniform will debut on Saturday, March 30 at Milwaukee, and will be worn only on Saturday dates away from Busch Stadium.
National Baseball and Cardinals Hall of Famer Ozzie Smith presented the current Cardinals outfielder, Harrison Bader, with the new uniform at the event on Monday morning at Ballpark Village.
Bader will show off the new jersey when he drops the ceremonial first puck before Monday night’s St. Louis Blues game at Enterprise Center.
