The Corvallis Knights love pinstripes. The hometown team has won all four of its WCL titles at home, in their classic pinstripe uniforms that were introduced in 2004. In a nod to the club’s tradition, the Knights are introducing a new set of Nike pinstripe jerseys this season – as modeled by new assistant coach Alex Bailey and incoming pitcher Trevor Wells of Linn-Benton CC (pictured, l-r) – that are sure to be popular with both players and fans.
“Pinstripes are old school, and a traditionalist’s favorite,” said Knights Baseball Club CEO Dan Segel. “With that said, I love these new uniforms. And so do all the young people we’ve polled. I keep hearing comments like sick, dope, off-the-hook that lead me to believe these uniforms are definitely modern, cool and well suited for our young players and fans.”
“Once again, Scott Lounsbury at Nike has done a fantastic job guiding us here; delivering first-class, great looking uniforms.”
The jerseys are Nike’s hottest style, the Digital Vapor Pro, and feature vibrant Nike team colors. The Knights will introduce their new uniforms on Opening Night; Wednesday, June 14 at Goss Stadium vs. the Port Angeles Lefties.
