With a new parent in the form of the Colorado Rockies, the Albuquerque Isotopes (Class AAA; Pacific Coast League) are donning purple threads exclusively during Sunday home games.
The new purple jerseys feature “Isotopes” across the front in silver lettering with black outline, while the caps are black with a purple bill and purple Isotopes “A” logo.
“Since we announced our partnership with the Colorado Rockies, fans have been asking for purple uniforms and purple merchandise almost nonstop,” General Manager John Traub said. “We knew we had to incorporate some purple for the fans, but we also wanted to highlight our partnership with the Rockies. This purple Sunday jersey does just that and really provides a unique look to our uniform combinations.”
Fans can already purchase their own purple caps in the Isotopes Park Pro Shop now and replica jerseys will be available prior to the second homestand of the season.
