NEW YORK (AP) – The New England Patriots are getting ready to unveil their first major-league-themed jersey and apparel design in over a decade with the unveiling of a new design, according to a report.
The Patriots, who are in the midst of their first full-season in New England since 1999, will debut their first baseball apparel and apparel product called the New England Yankees.
The team has also begun exploring other designs, including baseball caps and jerseys for women, the report said.
The New England-based apparel giant, which was founded by New England’s mayor, has been working with the team on its first MLB-branded design.
That is expected to come in mid-2019, according the report, which also says the team is in the process of developing a baseball-specific shoe and apparel line.
New England is the only team in the American League that doesn’t have a designated uniform sponsor, so the team must find one to use in order to create a cohesive identity.
