The Arizona Diamondbacks on Friday revealed their 2020 uniforms, their first iteration of Nike jerseys.
They revealed the set of six uniforms in full at the ninth annual D-backs Celebrity Golf Classic at the Whirlwind Golf Club.
Since the news broke in January that Nike would become Major League Baseball’s outfitter beginning in 2020, it was expected that each club would roll out new versions of their jerseys after the 2019 season.
The new-look uniforms aren’t a complete overhaul of the ones the Diamondbacks wore in 2019, but they include minor tweaks. Most notably, the gradient patterns on the shoulders and elsewhere are completely gone, while the font and color schemes remain largely the same.
“The black and teal is a nice little different kind of thing, and obviously the white and teal is my favorite. I pulled for that one to stay,” pitcher Robbie Ray said.
“I wasn’t a real fan of the gradient. I’m fine that it’s gone.”
Ray said he will miss the darker gray alternates, but admitted he liked the cleanliness of the new gray Nike outfits.
