OAKLAND – The Oakland A’s unveiled a Kelly Green alternate jersey today that will be worn by the team during every Friday home game in 2018. The jersey , which includes “Oakland” on the front, serves as a nod to the team’s rich history, as Kelly Green became one of the team’s colors in 1961. The A’s transitioned to solid Kelly Green jerseys in 1972.
The Kelly Green jersey is also part of the team’s new initiative, “Green Fridays.” Friday home games will feature enhanced ballpark entertainment, DJs, and more. The A’s encourage fans to show their team pride by wearing green every Friday. Fans can share photos wearing green by tagging @athletics and #GreenFridays on Twitter. More information on Green Fridays can be found at athletics.com/greenfridays.
The Kelly Green jersey will be available for purchase at the A’s FanFest tomorrow, Jan. 27, at Jack London Square and online at athletics.com/shop. Additionally, the team will give away 15,000 Kelly Green Matt Chapman replica jerseys at the game on Friday, April 20.
