[2/5/2018] Nippon Ham Fighters: Sky Blue Alternate Uniforms

The Nippon Ham Fighters unveiled new sky blue alternate uniforms today as part of their fifteenth anniversary project.

The sky blue color is a part of the Fighters’ color palette and appears on the home uniform (left shoulder). The color represents the blue skies and the supportive cheering fans. Sky blue was selected as the base color as a reminder of the cheering fans.

The uniform is asymmetrical (a design element that has been used since 2004). By reworking the design but keeping things simple, the pattern is a reminder of how important the past is while moving forward into the future.

Hokkaido is written across the chest as a sign of pride. The cap also carries the H from Hokkaido.

The uniforms will be worn by players and coaches during the We Love Hokkaido 2018 series, as well as a number of other games.
