SF Giants to debut City Connect uniforms Tuesday after production delays


SAN FRANCISCO — Good news came Monday for a team in need of positive vibes.

On a table in the middle of the home clubhouse, an array of orange hats piled out of a cardboard box. Players passed by, one by one, getting fitted for the caps’ long-awaited reveal on Tuesday. The Giants’ creamsicle-colored good-luck charms had arrived at last.

The Giants will wear their City Connect uniforms for the first time this season Tuesday night against the Dodgers after production delays prevented them from donning them for the first six weeks — and two Tuesday home games — of the schedule.

Stylistically the reviews have been mixed from players and fans — “Where I rank it, we’ll have to see,” said manager Bob Melvin, who wore even louder colors with the Padres’ blue, pink and white ode to Tijuana, Mexico — but the team’s success in them is not up for debate.

Since they were introduced in 2021, the Giants have gone 26-10 when wearing the bright white-and-orange jerseys — intended to invoke the fog rolling through the Golden Gate — but the alternate uniforms were caught up in MLB’s transition to Fanatics as its apparel manufacturer.

“(Uniforms) for this season were manufactured and distributed to Clubs with prioritization given to the primary home and road uniforms,” the Giants said in a statement last month, when the uniforms were unavailable for their first Tuesday home game of the season.

This year, the Giants planned to elevate the City Connect Tuesdays from a stylistic choice to a citywide celebration. In an effort to “re-energize San Francisco’s downtown business community,” the organization partnered with local businesses and large employers to generate a vibrant neighborhood atmosphere for every Tuesday Giants home game culminating in a celebration at Oracle Park.”
