Twins Uniform Unveiling - pictures

Today, Denard Span and Scott Baker joined TC Bear and Wally the Beer Man at Crystal Court in downtown Minneapolis to unveil two new Twins uniforms.

Denard is sporting the alternate home uniform, which will be worn on Opening Day and every Saturday home game. It is the same style worn in 1961, and is intended to honor the 50th season of Twins baseball.

Scott Baker modeled the new away duds. Gone is the block lettering and pinstripes. They tweaked an obscure Minnesota script that was used on jackets in the 60's.

The away uniform will also feature a new hat, with a red bill:

Kevin Smith explained that the 'M' hat will not be going away, partly because some players, including Joe Mauer, expressed a fondness for it.

The Twins didn't show off their tweaked home whites. The implication was that the only change was to the script. And that change is very subtle. (Click here for a pic from team store)

I'd like to express my gratitude to the Alright Hamilton graphics department for coming up with essentially the same away uniform, way back in April. We're going to go ahead and say that we inspired the Twins to go with that design. And we were pretty close about three weeks ago. Good job, team.

Hard-hitting, take-no-prisoners, in-your-face investigative journalism at its finest! AH! correspondents, producers, editors, and photojournalists are in the trenches every day so that we loyal readers are rewarded with the best Twins (and Doc Ellis) coverage money can buy. Mainstream media? Who needs 'em!

Don't forget the headline writers.

Kudos on being who I think are the first ones to get these online.

I think they are pretty good, but I bet they don't keep the away uni in 2011.

I think the white alts should be their permanant home jerseys.
