(KMOV) – The St. Louis Cardinals are letting the fans decide which color hat the team will wearing during road games in the upcoming season.
For the next two days, fans can click here to vote for their favorite uniform and cap combination. Those who follow the team on Twitter will then have a chance to sway the outcome with a single day of voting on Thursday. The Cardinals will add the total Tweet tally to the rest of online voting and the final result will be announced once all of the votes are counted.
“We want to let our fans decide whether they want our players to wear red caps or blue caps when the team is on the road,” said William DeWitt III, President of the Cardinals. “We also wanted to have a little fun by getting our fans to engage via social media to gauge how intensely they feel about the options.”
Fans may tweet using the designated hash tag for the cap color of their choice out of the options below.
1. #AllBlueSTL: Continue to wear blue STL caps during road games red STL caps at home
2. #AllRedSTL: Wear red STL caps during both road and home games
3. #BluevsRed: Wear blue STL caps on the road but only when playing against red teams
4. #GetawayDays: Wear blue STL caps on road “getaway days” (the last game of each road series)
The past 10 years, the Cardinals have been wearing navy blue caps during road games and red caps during home game. But in November, the St. Louis Cardinals unveiled new uniforms for the 2013 season, and for the first time in more than 80 years, the team will wear an alternate uniform on Saturdays that will feature “St. Louis” in place of “Cardinals” on the jersey.
All the team’s jersey will feature more detail in the embroidery, consistent with the graphical logo used by the club since 1998. The cap color change marks the finishing touch on the 2013 uniform updates.
