The Chunichi Dragons unveiled their 2016 Alternate and Summer uniforms on January 30.

The Alternate uniforms (blue) will be worn during ShoRyu Day at Nagoya Dome:

  • vs Yomiuri Giants on May 20 (Friday)
  • vs Hanshin Tigers on July 3 (Sunday)

The color of the uniform is based on what was used in 1974. The gold used in the trim and letters represents the burning desire to win and has ties to this year's slogan, RyuKonNenSho (竜魂燃勝). Replica uniforms will be given away to fans with tickets to the game.
