The Cincinnati Reds are the newest team to receive their City Connect jerseys on Saturday from Nike.
The City Connect jerseys are meant to represent something unique to the city, as for the Arizona Diamondbacks it says snakes in Spanish (Serpientes).

The jersey is all black with red and white trim around the “Cincy” on the front of the jersey and red trim on the end of the sleeve.
The hat is all black with a new “C” that features many different red lines that meet and form a modern look on the team’s previous logo.
Saturday is the first day the team will don the uniforms on the field.
