[3/3/2017] Nippon Ham Fighters: We Love Hokkaido Uniforms

The Nippon Ham Fighters unveiled their 2017 We Love Hokkaido Uniforms today. Shohei Otani modeled the uniform during a press conference.

The yellow used in the uniform comes from the 1977 film Shiawase no kiiroi hankachi (The Yellow Handkerchief) and represents happiness. Yellow also represents the sun and blue the sky. Together, they symbolize the team’s push toward successive championships.

The alternate uniforms will be worn during the following sixteen games this year:

  • April 29-30 vs Rakuten at Sapporo Dome
  • May 2-4 vs Lotte at Sapporo Dome
  • May 9-10 vs Seibu at Sapporo Dome
  • May 12-14 vs Lotte at Tokyo Dome
  • May 19-21 vs Orix at Sapporo Dome
  • May 26-28 vs Softbank at Sapporo Dome

Fans attending games on April 29 and May 3 will receive a free replica uniform.
