Its not the same as the old uniforms, they have the Royals script on the front in blue instead of the Kansas City block letters in white, with white pants instead of powder blue. Overall, I think it looks nice. It will be a Home Alternate uniform. (So they will now have two home alternates, because they didnt retire the royal blue jersey)

In other news, for the 8 or 9 Tampa Bay fans left out there, TB is completely overhauling their image. New team name (now they are just the Tampa Bay Rays), new logo, new uniforms, etc.

Overall it's just OK.
I could overlook the Royals script, but putting white pants with the powder blues just looks weird.

That rocks, really, and any Royals uniform with the number 5 on it, gets me excited. I like the powder blue coming back, they need to ditch the gray.

The white pants kind of suck, but the powder blues are so much better than the gray uni's.

I like the Powder blues because it reminds me of a the old Royals, when they used to know how to win. Reminds me of when I was a kid.

I think changing the uniforms every year is definitely the way to build a winning team.

Mr. Moore wanted the powder blue back... It will hopefully remind the team what winning was all about years ago... Never hurts too try...

Finally; a GM who WANTS to win !!!

You have the royals bring the power blue back and the Chiefs deciding to wear white at home.

Powder blue unis are teh ghey. Although I guess it's better than switching their colors to red and white like the Angels, Nationals, and D-Backs have done in the past three years. You can't even tell those teams apart when you watch SportsCenter.

From the Kansas City Star:

Could it be that the long wait for the return of the Royals' powder-blue uniforms is nearly ended?
Well, that has been the buzz among some uniform-watching Web sites - that the Royals have requested and been granted by Major League Baseball the powder-blues as alternative uniforms for 2008.

According to the buzz, the powder-blues would be worn with a twist from tradition - as tops only with white pants as Sunday home alternates, though the powder-blue tops also could be worn as Sunday road alternates with gray pants.

The Royals, for now, are not confirming any of the speculation.
"We're not making any announcement about possible uniform changes until after the season," said Mike Swanson, the Royals' vice president of communications. "Basically we'll make an announcement on our own terms."

The Royals used the powder-blues from 1973 through 1991, then opted for traditional gray road uniforms.

Wow. Carl must have a lot of pull.

I never liked the powder blue uniforms. Nothing like being the only team in baseball using pastels.
