The 2023 Texas Rangers City Connect gear was unveiled this morning, providing fans with a detailed look at the uniforms the team will debut this Friday against Oakland.
The uniforms pay immense tribute to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and include a number of easy-to-miss details (along with some not-so-easy-to-miss ones).
In a press release from the Rangers, the baseball history of the DFW area is explained:
"During the 1950s, Dallas and Fort Worth had a pair of professional baseball teams – the Dallas Eagles and the Fort Worth Panthers/Cats. The two cities were fierce rivals and couldn’t even agree on a shared airport. In 1964, construction began on Turnpike Stadium in Arlington. Just one year later in 1965, Dallas and Fort Worth came together like never before with a professional baseball team in Arlington – the Dallas-Fort Worth Spurs were born. Just a short while later, Turnpike Stadium was expanded to a seating capacity of over 35,000, renamed Arlington Stadium, and debuted as the new home of the Texas Rangers."
That explains the 'Peagle' on the uniforms. Yes, they're calling it a 'Peagle' - a panther and an eagle. Not many MLB teams can claim to have a mythical beast on their uni.
There are also plenty of other nods to DFW and Rangers history - as you can see in the below tweet from the team.
But, most importantly, the gear is available right now at MLBshop. Check out the newest items below and get your orders in before you're left waiting for a re-stock.
