Little League Introduces New Uniforms for the 2014 LLBWS

Russell Athletic and Little League® today announced new uniform combinations for the 2014 Little League Baseball® World Series, created and designed specifically to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Little League. The announcement of the new uniforms continues a long-standing relationship between Russell Athletic and Little League Baseball and Softball that dates back more than 30 years.

The uniforms are representative of the hard work, dedication and sacrifice required to getting to the Little League Baseball World Series, and were designed exclusively for the players featuring the Little League motto “Character, Courage and Loyalty”. The words that mean so much to the Little League organization have been designed into the fabric of the uniform, including the jersey sleeve and the ¾ length sleeve performance undershirt. There will be 16 total new uniforms, eight for the U.S. regions and eight International regions.

“Russell Athletic is extremely proud of these jerseys and what they represent,” said Robby Davis, Russell Athletic Sr. Vice President, General Manager. “These players deserve the best uniforms as they play at the highest level. We value our partnership with Little League immensely and congratulate them on an incredible seventy-five years.”

Each team is representing their region with a unique uniform color combination. All designs and decorations have been fully printed into the jersey, eliminating the bulk associated with twill numbers and lettering. The jersey material is a lightweight and breathable stretch fabric that can also be found on several college and minor league baseball teams around the country. This exclusive style will be available to purchase through Russell Athletic for the 2015 season.

“The Little League mission of building Character, Courage, Loyalty, has been at the heart of the organization since its inception in 1939,” said Liz DiLullo Brown, Little League Vice President of Marketing and Strategic Partnerships. “Thanks to the support from Russell Athletic, Little League is excited that these tenants of the organization will be featured so prominently on the new Russell uniforms of the Little Leaguers participating in the 2014 Little League Baseball World Series, as we celebrate our 75th Anniversary.”
