Atlanta Braves wives host free fitness festival for girls 8 to 12

Feb. 6, 2012 Atlanta : The new uniform foreground with former ones in the background. The Atlanta Braves introduced a new alternative home uniform at the 755 Club at Turner Field Monday, Feb. 6, 2012 reflecting the look of the 1966 team. The cream colored uniforms features the traditional Braves script in red across the chest minus the tomahawk, red numbers on the front and back, navy piping, navy player letters and a new logo patch on the left sleeve.  The logo patch has two criss-crossing tomahawks, the year "1876" - the franchise's first season - and the words "Atlanta Braves." Updates from the '66 uniforms include player names across the back and a cool-base material.  The '66 uniforms were made of wool flannel. Season ticket holders on hand got to see the new jerseys which will be worn during Saturday and Sunday home games with the team's traditional navy caps with red brims. The team will wear their red alternative jerseys for Friday night home games.   This marks the Club's first home uniform change since the red jersey was introduced in 2005.
