2009 Seibu Lions' Uniforms

The slightly grey uniforms on the left-hand side with "Lions" written across the front are the visitor uniforms and the uniforms on the right-hand side with the letter "L" are the home uniforms.

A special uniform that will be worn during training and exhibition games was also unveiled. You can see those here.

And in other news...

The Orix Buffaloes came to terms with three of their foreign players:

  1. Greg LaRocca - 1 year deal worth 27M yen (a drop from 110M)
  2. Tuffy Rhodes - 1 year deal worth 320M yen
  3. Alex Cabrera - 2 year deal worth 300M yen

There were also a few other press conferences held to introduce foreign players to the press.

The renovations being made to Koshien Kyujo are moving along and the park should be ready by March. The new slogan for the park, revealed earlier today, will be "Excitement & Enjoyment @ Koshien." A new logo will also be unveiled during re-opening ceremonies. For more information, you can check out the Koshien Kyujio "Renewal" website. The blog also contains some nice shots of the changes being made.

    The Lions’ new uniforms resemble the Tigers quite a bit. They’re nice in a classic sort of way, but I liked the uniqueness of the light blue uniforms.

    Thanks for the link to the blog. I was just about to ask you if they were going to put the grandstand cover back, but there is a picture of it in place at the blog.

    I agree. These new uniforms do have a "classic" quality to them, but more in the sense of the traditional MLB uniform.
