Bridgewater, NJ - The Somerset Patriots, the New York Yankees Double-A Affiliate, have unveiled three new uniforms for the 2021 season.

The uniforms are designed to honor the long history and iconic look of the Yankees.

The home jerseys will now feature navy blue pinstripes with the wordmark "PATRIOTS" in twill across the chest in navy blue and outlined in burgundy. The navy blue numbers, also outlined in burgundy on the back, will continue to be the style used by the Patriots throughout their existence. The Patriots secondary logo is featured on the left sleeve and the Yankees primary logo is on the right sleeve. The MiLB logo is located on the back of the neck in navy blue, black and silver.

The pants worn at home will also feature the navy blue pinstripes.

The road gray jerseys feature "SOMERSET" in a lightweight kiss cut twill written across the front in navy blue outlined in white in a similar block font used for "NEW YORK" to mirror the Yankees design. The numbers match the Yankees look and coloring on the back and are lightweight kiss cut twill as well. The sleeves are adorned with the Patriots secondary logo on the left sleeve and the Yankees primary logo on the right sleeve. The MiLB logo is located on the back of the neck in navy blue, black and silver.

An alternate blue jersey also uses the Yankees road look with the word "PATRIOTS" across the chest in gray with a white outline. The wordmark and the numbers on the back are decorated with lightweight kiss cut twill. The logos once again appear on each sleeve. The navy blue, black, and silver MiLB logo is on the back of the neck.

Both the road gray and the alternate blue jerseys will be worn with solid gray pants.

"As soon as we announced the partnership with the Yankees, everyone immediately started asking about pinstripes on our uniforms," said Somerset Patriots Senior Director of Merchandise Robert Crossman. "We are excited to be able to unveil our new look that marries these two great teams together. I think our fans will really enjoy the design, and hopefully it helps inspire the prospects coming through Somerset of their bright futures ahead."

This is only the third version of the Patriots home uniforms. The team originally featured white vests from 1999-2014. In 2015, a more traditional jersey top was introduced with sleeves.

The team has featured the same road grays throughout their history and had a few variations of their alternate blue jerseys.

The Patriots uniforms were designed by OT Sports, an official provider of MiLB on-field uniforms.

Replica versions of each jersey are now available for purchase on-line at somersetpatriots.com or in the Team Store located at TD Bank Ballpark.
