Fans who visited the Nationals’ team store were greeted with some new merchandise Friday, when the team’s first official Nike jersey and a new alternate hat were made available.
Jerseys for specific players aren’t yet on sale, so it’s unknown whether the Nationals will feature the players’ numbers underneath the script lettering like they did on their Majestic jerseys. The website calls these white fits their “alternate 2020 authentic team jersey,” so they appear to at least be in the rotation of team gear being worn next season.
The team also released a new hat with the Senators’ W behind a pitcher throwing. This comes a year after Washington created a Spring Training hat that used the same W in front of an outline of the U.S. Capitol building.
Now about those lucky blue alternates finally going on sale…
