JetHawks go retro on Thursdays

In honor of the team's 15 years in the Antelope Valley, the Lancaster JetHawks will wear retro unis every Thursday.
As part of the continuing celebration of 15 years of professional baseball in the Antelope Valley, the Lancaster JetHawks (High Class A; California League) will introduce retro uniforms during their Thursday, April 15 game against the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes. The JetHawks players and coaches will wear uniforms designed from the ones the first Lancaster team wore in the 1996 inaugural season. This tribute will take place at every Thursday home game during the 2010 campaign.

“We want to honor the heritage of the Lancaster franchise,” says JetHawks General Manager Larry Thornhill. “Each new season builds on the foundation of great memories the JetHawks have provided over the last 15 years and we’re glad to help our fans re-visit some of those memories by wearing the team’s original jerseys.”

Featuring the original purple, red, and white design, these uniforms also include a special 15th anniversary patch on the left sleeve of the jersey. The original 1996 pants and caps will be worn as well, helping the JetHawks pay tribute to the traditions of the Antelope Valley. At the conclusion of the season, the JetHawks will auction off the game-worn uniforms.
