Following a D-lightful run to seize the 2023 Nationwide League pennant, the Arizona Diamondbacks are able to step ever additional ahead in 2024 with an all-new uniform set and colour-appropriate brand replace, unveiled this morning by the membership through a press launch.
The numerous change for 2024 sees the full elimination of the color sand throughout their common residence, street, and alternate uniforms in addition to their primary logo in alternate for lots extra teal – we bought a bit of style of this alteration one yr early when the D-backs did this to their residence uniform coming into 2023. The sandy color will stay prominently featured within the membership’s Metropolis Join “Serpientes” uniform.
“The 2024 Arizona Diamondbacks uniforms characteristic the return of retro components in a daring new trend with a nod in direction of custom,” mentioned Derrick Corridor, President, CEO & Common Associate of the Arizona Diamondbacks, within the press launch. “As all the time, they have been designed with suggestions from our avid fan base through surveys and focus teams, whose love for the Teal mixed with Sedona Crimson makes it uniquely genuine to the Grand Canyon State.”
Sand had been an important participant within the Diamondbacks’ general look since they switched away from their original purple and teal colours following the 2006 season. A decade later, the D-backs returned the teal as a brighter shade, then used it as a trim on their alternate residence and street set. It proved well-liked, and now, the tables have turned, because the turquoise is changing the sand. It’s poetic, in a manner.
“We’ve seen among the current traits in baseball is to go together with a throwback,” mentioned D-backs EVP Cullen Maxey in a cellphone name with SportsLogos.Web. “After speaking to our fan base and focus teams to see what *their* urge for food was for moving into that route, we discovered that — whereas the followers have cherished among the conventional seems to be, they’d like a contemporary twist. So, it’s not fairly what you’ll name a conventional throwback, however with among the options of a throwback. That concept bought us excited. We began engaged on this a few years in the past, and right this moment we see the outcomes of that.”
Let’s run via the brand new uniforms one after the other:
At residence, the Diamondbacks will put on return to 1998 with an off-white/cream jersey. The brand new high is paired with a black cap in pictures, however there’s additionally a pink choice to go together with this. On the entrance of the brand new Diamondbacks residence jersey is the membership’s main brand in Sedona pink and trimmed in teal on the higher left aspect. Black “baseball piping” runs down the entrance of the jersey on both aspect of the buttons and across the collar. The sleeves will characteristic a single black stripe close to the cuff with the AVNET commercial on one sleeve and the snake head brand on the opposite.
On the entrance crown of the black cap is the D-backs main “A” brand in pink and teal; the visor and button are additionally black. The pink cap, which will also be worn with this uniform, additionally contains the “A” brand in pink and teal on the entrance with a black visor.
Arizona fortunately sticks with the normal shade of gray for street video games — “ARIZONA” is arched throughout the entrance of the jersey in pink with black and teal trim, positioned upon that very same black piping as we noticed on the house set. The cap is black with a pink visor and the return of an outdated favorite — the snake “D” brand, in pink and teal. Sleeve particulars are the identical as the house set.
There are, after all, a few alternate uniforms within the combine right here. The primary one we’ll cowl is a black jersey with the identical black cap as what’s worn with the house uniform. The D-backs main “A” brand is within the higher left with teal piping down both aspect of the buttons and on every sleeve.
The second alternate is an fascinating new pink one with the complete “DIAMONDBACKS” wordmark throughout the chest – the primary time the membership has had a non-throwback uniform with the complete crew title featured on it because the 2000 season. This wordmark is black with teal trim, with the participant’s quantity under it to the left in teal with black trim. No piping down the entrance of this one, although there are teal and black stripes across the collar and on every sleeve. The identical sleeve patches are worn on this jersey as are worn on the opposite three. A pink model of their street cap is on the market to be worn with this one, along with the black street cap.
Each the black and pink alternate jerseys may be worn at residence with off-white pants or on the street with gray pants.
The swap to a cohesive color scheme throughout all of the Diamondbacks uniforms and logos was intentional, following a run of a number of seasons throughout which the crew primarily wore two completely different color schemes frequently — generally, the crew can be pink/black/sand and others pink/black/teal (to not point out the throwback purple and teals).
“We had a few completely different color remedies for our main brand,” Maxey defined. “Quite a lot of instances you’ll see it, and also you noticed this within the Postseason, [during the press conferences] we might have our supervisor carrying a brand that’s completely different from the one on the backdrop and all the things else. Now we’ve got one constant look representing the D-backs, which was an vital piece of creating that call.”

The brand new set would be the fourth uniform period for the Diamondbacks all through their practically 30-season run. Their original purple and teal uniforms have been worn from their inaugural 1998 season via their 2001 World Collection Championship till 2006. The membership switched to a red, black, and sand colour scheme for 2007 and continued to the tip of 2015 earlier than adopting the logos that they had worn up till this previous season. On this most up-to-date period, essentially the most important shift was dropping out the dark grey (almost black) worn on the street units for traditional light grey in 2020.
As talked about earlier, this would be the first time because the membership’s unique uniform set by which a jersey will characteristic the complete “Diamondbacks” title throughout the entrance, changing the abbreviated “D-backs” which the membership had worn on not less than on jersey because the 2007 season.
“We checked out San Francisco and mentioned, ‘If they’ll pull it off, let’s see what it seems to be like for us,’ so we tried to do it,” Maxey recalled. “We expect it seems to be nice!”
