Nike’s new “four plus one” rule for MLB uni sets has apparently claimed another victim, as SportsLogos.net is reporting that the Rays are scrapping their road greys and elevating their Devil Rays throwbacks from “occasional” status to full alternate status.
So the Rays’ four jerseys will be:
- Home whites.
- Navy (which will now become the primary road jersey).
- Light-blue alternate (which is also the team’s spring training design).
- Devils Rays throwbacks.
There are lots of additional details, but SportsLogos.net’s Chris Creamer did the original reporting on this, so you should hear those details from him, not from me. Check out his full story here.
Tampa Bay is not the only MLB team scrapping its grey jersey for 2023. The Mariners made the same decision earlier this year, and we’re still waiting to see how things shake out for a few other teams.
