It was announced last week that the Atlanta Braves would drop the red jerseys from the uniform inventory in 2014. The feedback on the message boards and on twitter was that the fans really didn’t like these home alternative jerseys.
Personally, I love the traditional white jerseys and I’m glad they don’t mess with that one but the red uniform didn’t really bother me that much. I actually enjoyed switching it up a little to have the “alternative” style.
But…it’s not up to me.
#Braves are dropping the red home jerseys they wore for Friday home games in 2013. Going with the white and the creme uniforms in ’14.

The Braves will move forward in 2014 with their traditional white uniforms for weekday home games and their cream-colored uniforms for weekend home games.
For away games, it sounds like the Braves will stay with the grey uniforms and the blue style jerseys.
The Braves will wear a special red military-appreciation jersey for the home games listed below.
