FIU will wear eight different uniforms during the 2017 baseball season, which begins next Friday, Feb. 17 at home against Jacksonville State. Six brand new uniforms have been incorporated in the Panthers' rotation and two uniforms from last year will also be worn. Here's a look at the eight uniforms (CLICK on each photo to enlarge it):
Dominic LoBrutto is wearing the new home whites with Panthers in block letters similar to the current Pittsburgh Pirates home uniform.
Irving Lopez is wearing one of three road gray uniforms -- two of the three road grays are new. Below is Chris Mourelle in the other new road gray with Florida International in script across the chest.
FIU is bringing back the powder blue that has become popular in college baseball of late. It's a similar blue to what the FIU Sunblazers used to wear when baseball started at FIU in 1973. It's also a very similar light blue to the road uniforms of Major League teams in the 1970's and 1980's. Here is Eddie Silva in the powder blue uniform that will be worn for Sunday home games.
Another new throwback style uniform that FIU will wear this season is a cream-colored uniform similar to the style FIU wore recently. Except this new one that Ricardo Pozo is wearing has Panthers across the chest as opposed to FIU across the chest in the old cream-colored uniform FIU used to wear.
FIU has a new alternate top that it can wear with either white or gray pants for home and road games. JC Escarra and C.J. Witkowski are wearing the two combinations. The new alternate uniform has FIU in block letters on the blue top with gold sleeves.
The Panthers will keep two uniforms from last season, including the popular throwback-like that FIU wore on Sundays the last two years. Jack Schaaf is wearing the uniform inspired by an old Chicago White Sox look.
And here's a look at all the uniforms together.
