After four straight seasons without playoff baseball, the Arizona Diamondbacks are looking for a fresh start.

They got their fresh start on Thursday, with the debut of their new uniforms during the #DbacksEvolution event.

The uniforms, eight in total, will all be worn next season.

This includes the white home, road gray, black alternate, red alternate, Hispanic Heritage, purple and teal throwbacks, home alternate and road alternate.

There are also seven hats to go with each uniform.

The uniform change also brings a few logo changes, with the text changing and the snake logo being brought back.

 

The new home uniforms based in white feature the new, arched D-backs wording. They also include a diamond pattern on the shoulders and the lower legs.

The road gray’s feature the same diamond pattern, with a more blackish approach on the shoulders. The shoulder coloring is also featured in the black alternates with red shoulders and the red alternates with black shoulders.

The classic purple and teal throwbacks are not only coming back, but are also incorporated into two of the newer jerseys. A slight twist on the already new home and road uniforms feature teal accents on the jersey that include the collar, front number, and back nameplate.

The change in the alternates also features no coloring of the shoulders, a feature that is prominent in most of the new jerseys.

According to a press release from the team, the references on the jerseys include the club’s name, snakeskin and the diamond shape of a baseball field.

“This is an extremely proud and exciting time for our franchise,” said D-backs President & CEO Derrick Hall in the press release.

“The Arizona Diamondbacks have always been focused on innovation and it is time for us to take that step forward on behalf of Major League Baseball and continue the evolution of our uniforms. This process began over two years ago and has involved our players, coaches, fans, partners at MLB, Majestic, New Era, Nike and an extremely talented in-house design staff. The end result is an incredible product that will appeal to all our fans, but in particular the youth movement we so desire in baseball.”
