The Gastonia Grizzlies of the Coastal Plain League have unveiled new uniforms designed like tuxedos for Saturday night’s opener against the Martinsville Mustangs at 7:30 p.m. at Sims Legion Park in Gastonia, N.C.
The jerseys feature black vests and yellow ties along with an actual collar. The team took it a notch further by using special pants that resemble tuxedo pants with thick, gray piping running down the legs.
“Our goal is to always raise the bar when it comes to being creative and innovative,” said Grizzlies Managing Partner Jesse Cole. “We wanted to take a fun, stylish approach with this design, instead of the typical uniform. Head coach Jason Wood has recruited what we feel is a championship team and now the Grizzlies will be the best dressed team in sports as well.”
