Two More Tweaks To Washington's Away Uniform For 2010
There are two additional tweaks to Our Washington Nationals Script Away Uniform for 2010. Sohna and I were told of these minor changes the other day and were reminded about them again last night. No longer will Washington wear blue under sleeves and blue stirrups/socks with the gray away jersey and pants. A tradition since baseball returned to Washington in 2005. Instead--moving more in line with the basic home jersey--Our Washington Nationals will don red under sleeves and red stirrups/socks.
However, the blue away cap with White Curly "W" remains the same. From a personal standpoint, we've believed since the red script Washington jersey came active last season, the blue away cap should match that red lettering on the jersey and sport a Red Curly "W". The St.Louis Cardinals have worn a blue away cap with red STL for years. We see no reason why Our Washington Nationals couldn't follow that same path.
If we are making two more tweaks to Washington's script away uniform for 2010, why not go all the way in 2011? And use something similar to this vintage 1963-1967 Washington Senators Cap pictured below. We think it just looks better.
