8. 2015-Present Home

Here we have another addition to the Kasota Gold jerseys. While this jersey was the official throwaway to the pinstriped jerseys that followed the Twins since 1987 (although they were tweaked in 2010), it just seems off thanks to the gold outline and the blue logo and letters across the back.

Of course, the biggest highlight was the introduction of Kasota Gold to the Twins color scheme which originally debuted as part of the jerseys for the 2014 MLB All-Star Game at Target Field. As always, Twins president Dave St. Peter had a positive spin on adding gold to the scheme.

"“The Twins have a proud tradition and believe the team’s uniforms have long been among the best in baseball,” St. Peter said upon the home jersey’s introduction in 2015. “We are excited to introduce a new contemporary primary home uniform which evolves our brand via the introduction of a gold accent color representative of our home state, as well as our home ballpark.”"

If there’s one saving grace here, it’s that the gold outline on the Twins’ alternate hats look pretty sharp, but otherwise the gold falls flat and the jersey just looks too plain to be one of the better ones in Twins’ history.
