Evoking the alluring mystique of a Minnesota night sky, the new alternate uniform – the first in team history meant for both and home and road – is a majestic canvas for the Twins’ new shade of boldly dark navy blue. When this uniform debuts at Target Field, it will mark the first instance of the Twins wearing the word “Minnesota” at home.
The Twins’ new shade of boldly dark navy blue is the primary color for both jersey and hat, dynamically playing off a brilliant white and the club’s vibrant new red.
Celebrating the Twins’ championship heritage, the arched, blocked “MINNESOTA” script returns, now in the club’s exclusive new font and delivered in a striking white. In further nods to club history, the “S” features the power serifs of the Target Field-era “Twins” script, while the “T” is inspired by the heritage “TC” mark.
Player Number (front)
Consistent with the Twins’ new uniform system, the player’s number is on the front of the jersey, delivered in the club’s exclusive new font in a vibrant red to offset the white of the “Minnesota” script in a vivid juxtaposition of all three primary colors.
Player Name and Number (back)
Like the front, the player’s name and number – delivered in the Twins’ exclusive new font – are presented in offsetting red (name) and white (number).
The left sleeve features the refined “TC,” with the iconic white “T” and red “C” set upon the dark navy.
For the first time in Twins history, no elements of the alternate uniform are outlined in a secondary color or accentuated by a drop shadow. This key component of the system’s clean, refined and modern design allows for key visuals – the “Minnesota” script, player name and number, and sleeve emblem – to vibrantly resonate within the white and red palette.
First seen on Rod Carew en route to his 1972 American League batting title and reintroduced on a throwback worn by Joe Mauer during his 2009 AL Most Valuable Player campaign, the sleeve and pant piping is a tri-color pattern of navy, white and red stripes.
The new alternate look can be worn either at home (with the white pants of the primary home uniform) or on the road (with the pinstriped gray pants of the primary road uniform).
As the first professional sports organization to take the field bearing their state’s name, the Twins are proud to be Minnesota’s Major League Baseball team. The sibling mark of the legacy “TC,” with a white “M” and red North Star dynamically set upon the distinctive navy backdrop, this new look is an instantly iconic representation of the Twins and our state for Minnesota’s next generation of champions.
