The Minnesota Twins of Major League Baseball revealed new modern-looking uniforms and even a new logo on Friday.
The new set of uniforms includes an alternate home that reads “Twin Cities”. Makes sense for a team named the “Twins” because of the “Twin Cities” reference for Minneapolis-St. Paul.
You can see the slight side-by-side comparison with their new logo compared to the old one, though it’s nothing drastic.
It was a busy day of news for the Twins. On Friday, the team traded standout infielder Gio Urshela, acquired from the New York Yankees in the Josh Donaldson blockbuster, for minor-league pitcher Alejandro Hidalgo.
Sometimes, a team just needs a fresh start. For the Twins, the new logo/jersey revealing comes just over a month after the club completed a highly disappointing 2022 season that saw them finish 78-84.
Since winning back-to-back AL Central division titles in 2019 and 2020, the Twins have suffered back-to-back losing seasons for the first time since 2013 and 2014. Amazingly, the organization hasn’t won a single MLB postseason game since the 2004 ALDS, where they fell to the New York Yankees in four games.
The Twins were swept by the Oakland Athletics in the 2006 ALDS and by the Yankees in the 2009 and 2010 ALDS. The Pinstripes eliminated the Twins in the single-game 2017 AL Wild Card Game. Two years later, the Yankees (yet again) swept Minnesota in the ALDS.
Minnesota won the AL Central in 2020 with a 36-24 record in the shortened 60-game season, but they were swept by a Houston Astros team that finished below .500 (29-31) in the AL Wild Card Round.
We’ll see if the new uniforms and slightly different logo bring the Twins some much-needed change oin 2023.
