The Fresno Grizzlies, the Nationals’ new Triple-A affiliate, have announced primary logos, colors and uniforms for the 2019 season.
The scarlet, black, gold and beige scheme will be the Grizzlies’ new permanent look.
The team will wear the “F-slash” cap for road games and on alternate uniforms in 2019. The new primary logo is featured on the scarlet primary home uniform cap. However, the new color scheme was not dependent on the Nats’ prominent red and white primary colors.
Team president Derek Franks explained the decision to have colors independent of the Nationals.
“We decided on colors we felt best represented Fresno and central California, and we narrowed that down long before we were fortunate enough to affiliate with the Washington Nationals,” said Franks. “Fans can grab their new gear and not stress - these are the Grizzlies’ colors moving forward.”

The Grizzlies will start the 2019 season on Thursday, April 4 against the Reno Aces, Triple-A affiliate of the Diamondbacks, with a 7:05 p.m. first pitch at their home stadium, Chukchansi Park.
