The San Francisco Giants already have some of the best alternate uniforms in baseball, and they're adding another one into the fold temporarily.
As noted by Kerry Crowley of The Mercury News, the Giants plan to wear these uniforms - which pay homage to the San Francisco Sea Lions/Cubs of the Negro Leagues - Saturday, which is Juneteenth:
Juneteenth - which celebrates the freeing of slaves in the United States - appears on the fast-track to becoming a federal holiday, as the United States senate passed a bill Tuesday to such an end.
The Giants will host the Philadelphia Phillies this weekend at Oracle Park. While the Giants will be wearing special uniforms Saturday, the Phillies are reintroducing their red alternates Wednesday in Los Angeles, with the plan to also wear them Sunday in San Francisco.
