3. Red Alternate

The red alternate uniform look is actually a huge missed opportunity from the ballclub. Red is far and away the color you would associate the most with the Cardinals, yet they have not introduced a red jersey to use in the regular season. A lot of clubs have an alternate that can be used at both home and on the road, and I think now is the time for the Cardinals to do the same.

I actually enjoy the red jersey that they primarily use during spring training. Cardinals red is such a nice color, and really pops on your screen when watching them in action. They pair really well with both the white and gray pants, and the white outline of the logo makes the “Cardinals” logo still stand out.

They could get really creative with a new, regular season edition of a red jersey. One idea would be to add navy coloration down the side of the jerseys, or adding some kind of design to the sleeves. Either way, it’d be cool to see the club utilize these as a home/away alternate jersey, or introduce a new version of this design.
