Minor Uni changes for the Giants 2011

The Giants do not change their uniforms often.  I kinda expect that the the Giants organization takes pride in the jersey and tradition that represent our ball club.  Last year, the Giants introduced the orange alternate jersey.  I must admit it took some getting used to, but how can you say no to a jersey that went almost undefeated?  The only losses I can account for are a loss to the Padres late in the year and a loss to Atlanta in NLDS Game 2.

This year, the Giants deserved the right to don their "2010 World Series Champions" patch on all of their jerseys.  We are all used to the home jersey, but it will look so much better with that champions patch.  Now we can talk about the minor changes:

  • First comes the fix the Giants had made with the Orange Friday jersey.  They have removed the home Giants primary logo and replaced it with the away patch.  This makes it look so much cleaner.
  • The away jersey has also had its patch replaced.  It now has the primary logo on the sleeve rather than the secondary logo.  This gives the primary logo and the team name a chance to shine while on the road.  I think it was a good move.
  • No need to spend much time the batting practice jerseys.  Those will be around for two to three years tops until Majestic decides to "unveil" a new design for fans to spend more money. 

Lastly, thanks to a post by kvpd12, we know that the Giants are planning to wear gold trimmed jerseys for the home opener.  I have a friend at the Giants dugout that has confirmed this and speculates that the jerseys will be worn for opening day and for the ring ceremony Opening Night.  Not many people have much information about the jerseys, but we know from previous years that this was common.  The Cardinals (2005), Red Sox (2007), Phillies (2008) all wore the gold trimmed jerseys.  The Yankees however, decided not to use the gold trim jerseys last year.  I still think it would be great to pull off the "World's Champions" jersey that the Giants debuted in 1905 when they won the World Series.  There is even a ESPN article by Paul Lukas describing a Facebook page supporting this movement.
