Minnesota Twins: Ranking the Twins’ best uniforms of all-time
By Chris Schad
4. 1997-2013 Blue Alternates
While the red alternates had an extremely short life span before being set ablaze with a Tom Kelly cigar, the blue jerseys that were also introduced that season enjoyed a very long shelf life.
The Twins not only had several iterations of their blue alternates, which originally contained the traditional Twins script at home and a block Minnesota for the road, but the jersey also endured several tweaks as the Twins moved into Target Field.
While the original designs from 1997 are long gone, the Twins blue jerseys have evolved to have the current Minnesota script on the front and have steered clear of the dreaded Kasota Gold curse until last season when the Twins pretty much threw everything together and hoped for the best.
In all, the blue alternates were the first attempt at creativity for the Twins uniforms outside of the traditional home and away sets and as Minnesota continues to crank out blue jerseys through the years, it has to be considered a success.
