A video on the team’s Twitter account touts that it’s the blue of their past, and the team’s logo for life.
Back in the 1980’s, one of the team’s main jerseys was a powder blue.
The new uniforms are similar but feature a navy trim. It’s complete with a navy belt, socks and ball cap.
It’s capped off with a navy hat with a powder blue bill.
Baseball fans on social media had mixed reactions about the new look from approving:

To skeptical about the choice:
You used a colour that was never intended to be used as an actual colour… pic.twitter.com/LOI4T5fSB5

It’s bad. It doesn’t even look good. The darker blue is way better. Garbage!

I think it looks like you accidentally washed the blue and white uniforms together.

Some fans even pointed out the new threads look similar to the alternates of other teams, like the Kansas City Royals and the Minnesota Twins.
