While fans passionately advocated for the Diamondbacks to reintroduce the throwbacks into their jersey rotation, their hopes were dashed when the team unveiled an entirely new lineup of uniforms, which lacked the beloved pinstriped vests.

Last season, the jerseys garnered significant support from players after the Diamondbacks showcased them in August.

Alek Thomas expressed his opinion, stating, “I think we push whoever’s in charge of doing the jerseys, I think we could get that changed,” “But I talked to somebody at a charity event we had before the season and I don’t think the purple was in the cards for next year. So I think with all the hype and everything around the jerseys this past series, maybe we could change their minds.”

Followed by Geraldo Perdomo with, “That’s the best uniform we have,”. “First of all, because we won a championship with those uniforms. And secondly, the color is so nice. I think we should be wearing it more next year. It’s gotta be part of us every day at home. I think they have to bring it back. Same with the gray and purple (road uniforms), I think that’s the best.”

Even manager Torey Lovullo weighed in, stating, “I’m a big fan of the color, period. And then I remember when there were some gun shows back in the late ’90s when these guys were all flexed up and with no sleeves. I think it’s a great look. It’s traditional old-school baseball and I love that.”

Perhaps what the Diamondbacks need is an outspoken veteran like Joc Pederson to really push the pinstripes until Arizona’s front office finally relents…
