On Tuesday morning, the Chicago Cubs officially unveiled their City Connect Series jerseys. The Cubs are now the fourth team to receive a jersey, joining the Boston Red Sox, Miami Marlins, and Chicago White Sox.
The jerseys are designed to represent all 77 neighborhoods that make up the city of Chicago. The patch on the left sleeve also features the “Y” logo for the Chicago River, and the colors and stars of the city’s flag.
In addition, the new jersey also reads “respect our neighborhood” near the bottom of the jersey, with the classic “Wrigleyville” name displayed across the chest.
In addition, the jackets that will be worn display the names of all 77 neighborhoods in the city on the left sleeve, with the “Y” patch again on the sleeve as the Chicago River connects all 77 neighborhoods at its core.
As mentioned, the Cubs are the fourth team to release a City Connect uniform. The initial reaction has been a bit underwhelming, but the full uniform with the hat, undershirt, and socks really makes the light blue pop amongst the darker blue of the jersey.
The jerseys, along with all other merchandise, is available at MLBShop.com for purchase.
