Rockies’ New Threads Inspired By Colorado License Plates

  • The uniforms will debut on June 4 and will be worn for each Sunday home game at Coors Field.
  • Design “honors the wild landscape and adventurous spirit of the region’s residents."
Colorado Rockies

The Rockies unveiled their version of the City Connect jersey and its uniqueness figures to make it a big seller.

With a design that “honors the wild landscape and adventurous spirit of the region’s residents,” the jerseys are an ode to the state’s iconic green-mountain license plate.

The uniforms will debut on June 4 and will be worn for each Sunday home game at Coors Field.

Some of the details:

  • Purple piping on the sleeves and pants represents the row of purple seats at Coors Field that sit one mile above sea level.
  • The right sleeve features a yellow patch with “ROX,” the altitude of 5280, two black diamonds to represent skiing, and the longitude and latitude of Coors Field.
  • Embroidered on the front of the jersey is “Welcome to Colorful Colorado,” which is featured on roadway signs at the border.

Colorado is the 11th MLB team to unveil a Nike City Connect jersey and the fourth this season, joining the Astros, who shattered sales records with their “Space City” release, the Nationals, and the Royals.
