I am so glad that the Astros are keeping their tequila sunrise side panels on these new alternates. They matched their old spring training jersey but I think the wordmark across the chest works better than just the logo on one side.
I also think that because this uniform doesn’t have a headspoon like the other jerseys, it works well. It doesn’t need to be there as it would take away too much from the side panel.
The caps are also a very nice touch. It isn’t a surprise that they went this route. They already have an all orange cap, an all navy cap and a navy cap with an orange brim. Now they’ve filled out the other possible option. It’s simple. It’s nice. It will work well with any uniform combination they wear. Good choice.
