The Redbirds are changing up their look for the upcoming 2017 campaign.
In lieu of the traditional batting helmets that only have a sticker decal of the team’s logo, the team will have a 3D masterwork of the iconic STL logo on the helmet.
The Cardinals will join the Los Angeles Dodgers as the two clubs that will test this new style of helmets. These new helmets will surely give the Redbirds a more modern style to their iconic and classic uniforms that highlight the birds on the bat.
Another advantage of these new and unique helmets is that the logo will no longer be masked behind layer upon layer of sticky, dull, and unattractive pine tar. This transition to this newly designed helmet proves to be just another example of how the Cardinals are constantly trying to stay current with the times and continue in being a trend setter in the sports industry in many different aspects that do not just include on-field performance.
