Last year,the Giants unveiled an updated orange alternate for those Orange Fridays we’ve all grown to love. Now the team is unveiling yet another jersey, a black home alternate. These jerseys were unveiled ahead of the team’s annual FanFest,which takes place today and are the first alternate jersey in black since the 2001 season.
The jersey will make it’s debut on May 2,which is “Metallica Day” at AT&T Park where the Giants will take on the Anaheim Angels.
The jersey is black with the black interlocking SF outlined in orange on the left side of the jersey with orange piping coming down the front between the buttons on the jersey. On the left sleeve is a new alternate logo with the Golden Gate Bridge and the Giants wordmark underneath. The back of the jersey is just like the typical home jersey with no name on the back,but with a black numeral outlines in orange.
Unknown at this time is what caps will be worn the jerseys or what other dates they will be worn,but if I had to guess they will more than likely wear the usual black caps with the orange SF on them, unless it’s Sunday then they will wear the caps with the orange bill.
While I hardly think a new jersey is anywhere near this team’s current priorities,I do like them,espcially the sleeve patch. I think fans so far like them as well,but I think they’d like some better free agents more than another jersey for the team to wear. How many do they need?
