“Over the course of its first two seasons, the Nike MLB City Connect Series has been the most successful consumer product initiative we’ve ever had,” said MLB chief revenue officer Noah Garden.
“The overwhelmingly positive response from our fans is clear when you see ballparks full of these distinct designs and colors. Our Clubs have focused so much time and effort with Nike to create these exceptional uniforms for their fan bases, and it shows in every last detail. We look forward to seeing even more of our parks filled with City Connect jerseys this season.”
MLB launched the Nike City Connect program during the 2021 season to celebrate the bond between teams and their home city.
This year’s City Connect uniforms explore “the personality, values and customs that make each community and their residents unique,” according to a press release from the league.
