“Our City Connect uniform links the past and the present, making the old new, with a nod to our city’s great history of space travel,” senior vice president of communications and marketing Anita Sehgal said in a press release.
“The Astros retro elements with a forward-thinking approach matches the constant pursuit of new opportunities and extraordinary wins that represent the great city of Houston.”
The “Space City” jerseys and hats are completed with rainbow socks, a tip of the cap to the 1970’s team’s uniforms and a patch that includes the four different Houston area codes with a play on the Texas flag.
The Arizona Diamondbacks debuted their City Connect jerseys with the “Serpientes” logo across the chest with a sand-colored hat and jersey.
