On the same day they officially announced Freddie Freeman's new contract - the largest in franchise history - the Braves also unveiled a brand new alternate jersey for 2014. It has a military theme and is set to be worn for five home games during the upcoming regular season.
Without further ado, here is what it looks like:
And here are the five games they plan to don the new kits:
April 26 vs. Cincinnati Reds (Military Family Night)
June 13 vs. Los Angeles Angels (United States Army Anniversary)
July 26 vs. San Diego Padres (United States Marines Celebration)
August 30 vs. Miami Marlins (United States Navy Celebration)
September 19 vs. New York Mets (United States Air Force Anniversary)
The jerseys will be auctioned off after each game with the proceeds going to charities that involve the military, including the USO and Wounded Warrior Project. It's all for a good cause.
The Nationals, of course, also have a patriotic themed jersey they pull out for special occasions. The teams won't matchup this season with the Braves wearing theirs, but that might be a good idea for a Fourth of July series some day down the road.
