The Baltimore Orioles unveiled their new 2012 uniforms yesterday. Take a look:
There are a couple of new things to check out here. Our favorite part is the return of the cartoon bird on the hat. The Orioles are saying that this version is a combination of the birds from the 1970 and 1983 versions. We love the nod to the past with just enough of a change to make it new. Well done Orioles.
They've also added a alternate orange jersey to be worn on Saturday home games. The last time the Orioles wore an orange jersey was in 1992, the inaugural season of Oriole Park at Camden Yards. We've always loved the Orioles orange so again, well done. Not pictured here is the alternate black jersey which they will continue to wear on Friday nights.
The script on the road uniforms has been changed slightly with a less severe angle and the removal of the tapering on the letters.
Finally, the Orioles will be celebrating the 20th anniversary of Camden Yards with a 20th Anniversary patch on the right sleeve.
We think MLB and the Orioles have done a good job with these changes. What do you think?
