LSU baseball will look different in 2024. Aside from the lineup changes caused by the MLB Draft and graduations, the Tigers have several notable uniform changes.
Deion Sanders once said, “u look good, u feel good. u feel good, u play good.” In Baton Rouge, we expect all the above from the defending College World Series champions. Thus far, the boys are looking good.
Fans received a first look at LSU baseball’s new road grey uniforms during Friday’s scrimmage at Alex Box Stadium. The grey top features the interlocking “LSU” logo on the left chest and player numbers in the lower right abdomen. But what pops on the 2024 grey jerseys is the purple piping running up the front and wrapping around the neck.
The Tigers looked sharp.
One of my favorite X (Twitter) accounts, LSU Uni-Tracker, also noticed another significant change to LSU baseball’s aesthetics: purple matte batting helmets.
LSU Uni-Tracker posted a graphic on Thursday featuring mockups of all LSU baseball jersey changes for the new season. In addition to the road greys, the Tigers added purple piping to the home white tops. Also, the LSU home jerseys replaced the interlocking “LSU” with the same arched “Tigers” font featured on the gold alternate jerseys.
Moreover, the American flag on the left sleeve was replaced with a purple patch shaped like Louisiana. An SEC patch will be worn on the left sleeve of all jerseys. It is presumed LSU baseball moved the American flag patch to the back collar, albeit a smaller version.
Another minor change worth noting is that the Nike swoosh has moved from the right to the left chest of all LSU baseball jerseys. Such seems insignificant, but now that I’ve seen it, the move makes sense, considering the shape of Nike’s logo.
LSU is slated to wear four jerseys in 2024 including the home whites, road grays, alternate gold top, and alternate white top with purple pinstripes. It is unknown if and when the Tigers will don a purple jersey this season.
