These special Red Sox uniforms represent the Boston Marathon finish line colors and have a “617 bib” on the sleeves.
Yes, the uniforms are missing the color red, but I think they’re cool, especially for what they represent. The special uniforms are for Patriots’ Day weekend, so it’s not like the Red Sox will be wearing them every day. As Big Papi reminds us of the words he said at Fenway in the video below, “This jersey doesn’t say Red Sox, it say(s) Boston. We are Boston.”
Boston is a City where championships are won. With ‘Boston’ stenciled across the chest & the 617 race bib on the sleeve – we celebrate drive, grit, and resilience that is matched by bold ambition & creativity. ™/© 2021 MLB pic.twitter.com/bCaM67Gflq— Nike Diamond (@nikediamond) April 6, 2021
