Alex Cora revealed on @NameRedactedPod that the Red Sox will be rocking their City Connect uniforms whenever they’re home on Saturdays.
Fridays at home will feature the red uniforms. Rest of the week will be whites.

Interesting news today out of Boston, where Red Sox manager Alex Cora said on a podcast that the team’s blue/yellow City Connect uniform will be worn for Saturday home games in 2024. The uniform had previously been worn on random dates scattered throughout the season.
Boston was the first MLB team to get a CC uniform, back at the beginning of the 2021 season. At the time, the plan was for all teams to be CC’d by the end of 2023, with each CC design being used on a three-year cycle. So under that original plan, the Red Sox would be due for a new CC uni next season.
But the timetable has been stretched out a bit, as next year will be the fourth season for Boston’s CC design. Meanwhile, there are still 10 teams that have not yet joined the CC program: the A’s, Blue Jays, Cardinals, Guardians, Mets, Phillies, Rays, Tigers, Twins, and Yankees. Those teams will presumably get on board next season, although nothing official has been announced on that front.
In his podcast appearance, Cora also said the Sox would continue to wear their red alternates for Friday home games, with white being worn for all other days of the week.
(My thanks to Patrick Kelley for bringing Cora’s quote to my attention.)
