Last year saw MLB teams debut the league’s first edition of City Connect uniforms.

This is something that Nike has done with several other sports but debuted in baseball for the first time. It apparently went over well, as they renewed the idea for the 2022 MLB season.

The Colorado Rockies were not a part of the debuting City Connect uniforms last year. However, they have now debuted their first edition of the uniforms on Friday and these bold uniforms certainly have the MLB world talking.

It is an entirely different look from the typical purple that the Rockies usually show in their jerseys.

The reaction to these is very mixed. Some believe that they did a great job of incorporating the culture of Colorado with these uniforms.

Others seem to think that these uniforms missed the mark, and are a bit off compared to the other City Connect uniforms that the MLB has seen.

Whether or not you like the color scheme or design on the jersey, Nike did do their best job of tying in the state of Colorado into these uniforms compared to uniforms of the past.

The green color resembles the license plates in the state, as well as Colorado State University’s team colors. They also incorporated the Rocky Mountains that are prevalent within Colorado — and are the team’s namesake.

They are set to debut these jerseys on June 4 against the Atlanta Braves at Coors Field and will be worn by the Rockies for every Sunday home game for the rest of the season.
