Starting this 2020 season, the Nike swoosh will loom above the Braves’ logo on player jerseys.
The league announced in January 2019 that Nike would replace Majestic as Major League Baseball’s uniform supplier as part of a 10-year deal.
The Braves updated logos and colors for the 2019 season. This season, only the Nike branding is different. The Majestic logo was on the sleeve.
The uniforms for some teams — including the Brewers, Padres, Diamondbacks and Rangers — will feature new designs.
Majestic manufactured MLB batting practice jerseys since 1982 and had been the exclusive supplier of game uniforms since 2005. Rawlings and Russell Athletic had exclusive rights before Majestic.
The online sportswear retailer Fanatics will manufacture and sell licensed versions of the Nike uniforms and training wear, starting next month.
