While the Twins were the relocated Washington Senators, long associated with being in the cellar, the Minnesota squad was chock full of young talent. It was not long before this team was vying for American League titles.

With that said, still utilizing the red, white and blue, last seen in Washington D.C., the Twins had a great look.

Both the home and away uniforms had “Twins” in a blue with red trim cursive script. The home uniforms were a white with navy pinstripe. The road jerseys were a plain gray. The back featured the player number in navy with a red outline. Both jerseys had the left sleeve patch of the “Twin” cities logo.

For the 1972 season only, the “Twins” script color was flipped. It was red with a navy outline and the jersey had colorful trim on the collar.

The team hat was navy with the red and white “TC” for Twin Cities. I love that look.

    I always like that the “detached tail” in the 89-09 uniforms is actually underlining “win” in “Twins”.
