By / MLB.com
The Kansas City Royals today announced updates to the club's road alternate uniform for the 2014 season.
Changes to the road alternate "royal blue" uniform include:
- The jersey will feature the Royals classic KC logo, which also appears on the club's cap.
- The royal blue jersey will be trimmed in white and powder blue piping, and the numeral and player name will be white with a powder blue outline.
- The classic KC logo will appear on a Royals regular season game uniform for the first time in club history, and the new look includes several design elements featured in the club's various blue "batting practice" jerseys worn from the 1980s into the early 2000s.
"The KC logo continues to be extremely popular with our fan base and is synonymous with Kansas City," said Kevin Uhlich, Royals Sr. Vice President-Business Operations. "With that in mind, the Royals are excited to incorporate the logo into our uniform collection for the 2014 season."
