Braves will unveil ‘refreshed’ uniforms at Chop Fest

Braves will unveil refreshed uniforms for the 2019 season during Chop Fest Saturday, Jan. 19 at the Battery Atlanta.

Ronald Acuna, Ozzie Albies, Freddie Freeman, Ender Inciarte and Dansby Swanson are expected to model the new looks at 11:30 a.m. at SunTrust Park.

The Braves’ current home white uniform was introduced in 1987. The team has made some uniform updates since. In 2012, the Braves introduced alternative cream-colored home uniforms that paid homage to the 1966 team and a blue road jersey. The team began using red home jerseys in 2005.

Throughout the season, the team also wears “specialty” uniforms in conjunction with MLB specified dates.
