During a press conference this morning at Turner Field, the Braves officially unveiled yet another alternate jersey.
The jerseys are identical to the ones we initially linked to last month. Here's a closeup view of the patch on the sleeve.
My initial thoughts? NEEDS MORE TOMAHAWKS. No tomahawk on the front of the jersey makes me a sad panda, and takes the team down another small path towards political correctness. But dammit, I associate the tomhawk so highly with the team.
The jersey will be worn for Saturday and Sunday home games. The former Sunday home reds will now be worn on Friday night home games.
So just to clarify, that's now five jerseys for this team. It's completely conceivable for the team to wear five different jerseys over seven games, or four over six games. Jeez, talk about overkill.
The jerseys are available for sale today at the CNN Center clubhouse store, and you can order them online right now.

The Atlanta Braves have unveiled a new alternate home uniform that is based on the attire worn when the team moved from Milwaukee in 1966.
The Braves held a ceremony Monday for Chipper Jones, Brian McCann and Dan Uggla to model the new look. Hank Aaron was also on hand.
The cream-colored uniforms feature the customary Braves script across the front, but without the tomahawk that...
Eric OFlaherty made 895,000 last year, when he led major league relievers with a 0.98 ERA and became the first reliever in MLB history to finish with an ERA below 1.00 in at least 70 appearances.
Backed by his incredible 2011 numbers, which included 67 strikeouts in 73 23 innings, OFlaherty signed a one-year deal worth 2.49 million in January.

This year the Atlanta Braves will sport new home alternate jerseys that are something of a throwback. The cream colored alts feature blue piping, a number on the front, and lack the tomahawk under the script “Braves”. The left sleeve features a patch with two crossed tomahawks, and the year 1876, the year of the team’s inception. The unis are designed to be evocative...
Time for a guy who could be a factor for the Braves this season, but not in his current role: Erik Cordier. The 25 (26 this month) year-old Cordier was acquired from the Braves way back in March of 2007 from the Royals in exchange for Tony Pena Jr, then a shortstop. He missed all of the 2007 following Tommy John surgery, and only threw 45 innings in 2008 for the GCL and Rome. In...
The Atlanta Braves introduced new alternate jerseys today, which is their third alternate jersey (and fifth overall) that the team wears in game action. That doesn't include their batting practice/spring training jersey. But enough about the inane concept of making another jersey. The press conference that the jerseys were introduced during was laughable in its own right.

After falling criminally short of making the playoffs last season, the Atlanta Braves made up for it in a big way in 2012 by winning the whole damn thing, knocking off the three-time...
Todd Cunningham was the second round pick of the Atlanta Braves (53rd overall) out of Jacksonville State University in the 2010 draft. Upon being drafted, Cunningham was sent to Rome, where he OPSed .679 in 65 games. In those 65 games, Cunningham showed decent plate discipline (14 walks, 30 strikeouts) and minimal power (.078 ISO). He went to Lynchburg for the 2011 season, and including...
Tommy Hanson, who dealt with shoulder issues in the second half last season, is reportedly feeling good as spring training approaches. Hanson has the talent to be a top NL pitcher, but injury concerns have and will continue to plague him. Even though he pitched just 130 innings last season, his K/9 rose to almost 10, however his walk rate isn’t improving like we’d expect from...

Major League Baseball is in that early-February lull that comes each offseason between the whirlwind of trade activity, but prior to pitchers/catchers reporting. With the current roster basically set heading into Spring Training, this would be a good time to fill that seasonal void by discussing what the future holds for the Atlanta Braves.
The front office has made...
ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Braves have unveiled a new alternate home uniform that is based on the attire worn when the team moved from Milwaukee in 1966.
Atlanta might be known for pitching more than any other organization in the last two decades. Right now, the Braves fully intend to make the right-handed trio of Julio Teheran, Arodys Viczaino and Randall Delgado -- the team's top three prospects -- a part of their future plans, not someone else's.
