[7/17/2017] Hiroshima Carp alternate “Kabuku” uniforms

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.

[6/26/2017] New Samurai Japan Uniforms Unveiled

Samurai Japan held a press conference earlier today to unveil their new uniforms made by ASICS. Hiroshima’s Seiya Suzuki and Yokohama’s Yoshitomo Tsutsugo modeled the new uniforms for the press.

The concept for the new design is to bring fans and players closer together through a uniform.

Four traditional Japanese colors are used in the uniform: blue gray (aokachi iro), white (mashiro), red (kurenai iro), and gold (kogane iro).

The pinstripes are made of an infinite number of connected tiny wa’s (circles). This idea comes from the traditional Japanese watsunagi pattern. The connections between each wa also represent the connections between fans and players.

Samurai Japan will begin to use the new uniforms during the 2017 Japan-USA Collegiate Baseball Championship Series that is slated to begin in Hartford, CT on July 12.
