Updates to the 2011 Nippon Ham Fighters uniforms coming

The Nippon Ham Fighters uniforms will be getting a slight make0ver for the 2011 season.  While specific details haven't been released, it seems most of the changes will be taking place with the road uniforms.  One thing does appear to be certain: the Fighters will have two caps next season and their road caps will have an H (for Hokkaido) on the front instead of the regular F (for Fighters).  The logo will also be modified slightly.

The Fighters are planning to hold a press conference to show the updates to their uniforms and logo at some point this month.

UPDATE 1/6 @ 12:25pm - according to Sponichi, the lettering on the home uniforms will change.  The gray road uniforms will apparently get a new color (Hokkaido color) and the team name on the front will become Hokkaido Nippon Ham (2 lines), instead of just Nippon Ham.  It seems the team will be trying to emphasize their Hokkaido background more this season.
