Red Sox unveil Patriots' Day uniforms

BOSTON — Well. That's ... different. 

The Boston Red Sox will be sporting a new look for Patriots' Day featuring bright yellow and pale blue uniforms for the players. 

The new look is part of the Nike MLB City Connect Series uniforms, "designed in collaboration with Nike to capture the spirit of Patriots’ Day weekend and the unique bond between the club and the City of Boston."

The Red Sox are the first of seven baseball clubs to show off the uniforms being rolled out by Nike and Major League Baseball throughout the 2021 baseball season.

"The new uniforms will be worn on April 17 and 18 when the team plays the Chicago White Sox," officials said. "The Red Sox will continue to wear the white B Strong jerseys on Monday, April 19, worn annually since 2013."

Those jerseys are worn in remembrance of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing. 

According to a press release, "The Red Sox worked with several creatives and cultural influencers from Boston and the region who embody the boldness of the design.

The group includes local artist Rob Gibbs, co-founder and director at Artists For Humanity; Marlene Marmolejos, motion designer/director; Jenny Nguyen, stylist, model and community leader; Cliff Notez, musician, filmmaker and multi-digital artist; The SuperSmashBroz, Muyi and Noma Okundaye, both DJ’s/music producers; Christopher Salako, freelance creative director/stylist; and Drew White, creative designer for Bodega."  

Here are the dates for when each of these uniforms will hit the field:

- Red Sox: April 17

- Marlins: May 21

- White Sox: June 5

- Cubs: June 12

- D-backs: June 18

- Giants: July 9

- Dodgers: Late August
