The TinCaps will wear classic white pinstriped uniforms at home. The jersey and pants have forestÂ green pinstripes and piping. The jerseys have a sleeveless look, with forest green sleeves featuring theÂ apple logo on the right sleeve. “TinCaps” is spelled in king grey with black and white trim across theÂ chest. There is a king grey number on the lower-left chest and on the back of the jersey. All letteringÂ and numbers have a “riveted” look, just like the TinCaps’ new logo. Rounding out the home uniform isÂ a solid forest green cap with the apple logo on the front. The TinCaps will wear forest green socks forÂ all games.
On the road, the TinCaps will wear gray uniforms with forest green piping and jersey sleeves. The apple logo appears on the right sleeve. “Fort Wayne” is spelled across the chest in forest green with king grey and white trim. Jersey numbers appear on the lower-left chest and the back of the jersey. The TinCaps’ road hat is forest green with a king grey brim and the apple logo on the front.
The TinCaps also have an alternate jersey. The jersey is solid red with “TinCaps” spelled across theÂ chest in king grey with black and white trim. Jersey numbers are displayed on the lower-left chest andÂ the back of the jersey. A green “FW” logo appears in green on the right sleeve. The alternate cap isÂ gray with a red brim and the apple logo on the front. Pant color will depend on whether the game isÂ played at Parkview Field or on the road.
