Here’s how we rank Major League Baseball’s Nike City Connect uniforms from boring to brash
If you’ve spent any time in Houston for the past two weeks, you probably won’t be surprised to hear that the Astros’ Space City uniforms are a big hit. Jerseys, t-shirts and caps seem to be everywhere, which the Astros confirmed Wednesday when they sent out a statement that the day Space City gear went on sale was the second-highest sales total out of game from their team store, trailing only the day after the team won the 2017 World Series.
Space City uniforms are part of the Nike City Connect project in which Nike and every Major League Baseball team work together to come up with a uniform that correctly and creatively represents their community. Seven teams wore City Connect uniforms last season and seven more will reveal their new misses this season, with only the Nationals and Astros showing theirs so far. The Royals (April 30), Rockies (June 4), Angels (June 11), Brewers (June 24) and Padres (July 8) are yet to come.
