The Chunichi Dragons held a press conference today to unveil their 2014 uniforms.

Yudai Ono modeled the road uniform (gray), Yohei Oshima the home uniform (white), and Ryosuke Hirata the alternate uniform (blue top, white bottom).

The home and road uniforms are based on the designs used in 1954, when the Dragons won their first Nippon Series Championship.  The blue in the alternates were taken from the road uniforms used in 2011.

The Dragons are planning to give away from replica uniforms this season.  Additional details will be released on February 20.
