The Mariners will be bringing a bit of the not so distant past to the upcoming season. They announced today that the next season they will add a new home alternate jersey to their selection of uniforms.
Yep, they are bringing back the teal of the early 90s. You may recall they broke out these jerseys on June 5, 2010 in a Turn Back the Clock game that was magically not televised in the Seattle area.
Officially, the jersey color is called "Northwest Green." But whatever.
The "green" jersey will be the Mariners home alternate jersey and will be worn on Mondays and Fridays. Meanwhile, the navy alternate jersey that Seattle has been using for home games will now be their road alternate jersey only.
“When we brought the green jerseys back for this past year’s “Turn Back the Clock Day”, our fans and players told us they enjoyed the retro style, therefore we will make this a part of our 2011 uniform look,” General Manager Jack Zduriencik said in a press release.
