TinCaps unveil first new home uniforms since 2009

New Fort Wayne TinCaps “hometown pride” jerseys hang in the team’s locker room before Thursday’s game.

The Fort Wayne TinCaps unveiled two new home uniforms during their current homestand. It is the first time the team has retooled its regular uniforms since moving into Parkview Field in 2009, the first season they were named the TinCaps (after previously being called the Wizards).

On Tuesday they unveiled new white jerseys with no pinstripes and a different, easier-to-read font for uniform numbers. The word “TinCaps” still appears in the same font, colored in gray. The accompanying cap has a white front instead of being entirely green behind the team’s apple logo.

On Thursday the TinCaps unveiled their new “hometown pride” jerseys, which say “The Fort” across the chest. The jerseys have a green base and green sleeves with the team’s apple logo on the right sleeve. The numbers are in gray on the front and back of the jersey. The word “Fort” is written in white text, while the word “The” is green on a silver flag.

For those who like seeing different “Star Wars”-themed jerseys, I’m including this photo of the Millennium Falcon-inspired one worn by the team on Friday, May 4, aka “Star Wars Day.” You can’t see it well in the photo, but the Millennium Falcon is on the right sleeve where the apple logo normally is.
