[3/22/2017] Softbank Hawks: 1(Won)derful Stripe 2017 Uniforms

The Softbank Hawks announced that their Taka-no Saiten 2017 series will take place over eight games this season. They also unveiled the alternate uniforms they will be wearing during the series (modeled by Yuki Yanagita and Dennis Sarfate).

The stripes on the uniform look like the red stitching on a baseballs, but are actually based on the image of a Hawk flapping its wings. The color red (or Kachidoki Red) makes a return. The team went 6-2 when wearing Kachidoki Red during the Taka-no Saiten series in 2014.
