Today at noon, the Twins will unveil a major redesign of their road uniforms, and introduce a new alternate home uniform — 1961 throwbacks, commemorating their 50th season in Minnesota.
Scott Baker and Denard Span will be on hand at the IDS Crystal Court, as the team also unveils a subtle tweak to the main home uniform, a slight change with the script, I’ve been told. The team is being very secretive with details, but we will have more on this after the announcement.
Also, there is word that RHP Juan Morillo and 1B Justin Huber have indeed signed to play in Japan. The Twins would gain compensation for losing Morillo after placing him on the 40-man roster, but not for Huber, who was trimmed last week. Those transactions will be announced later today.
Update: Back from the unveiling. The 1961 throwbacks are outstanding — off-white, a real classic look. The road unis are a nice improvement — pinstripes are gone, TC hat, Minnesota written across front in script. Here’s a link to some images, but you need to see them on the players themselves. Hopefully we’ll have our photos up soon.
