The Hiroshima Carp unveiled a set of alternate uniforms they will be wearing during a three-game series against the Yakult Swallows that begins on August 18 (Friday). The uniforms are based on their slogan for this season, Kabuku. The colors, red and dark blue, are taken from a battle surcoat Soko Ueda wore during the Summer Siege of Osaka (Osaka Natsu-no Jin) in 1615.
The alternate uniforms were modeled by Yusuke Nomura and Tomohiro Abe.
