1998

The players liked the home vests so much, they cut the sleeves off one set of road jerseys. I don't have a jersey here (anyone have one?), but the Russell Athletic logo was missing because it was on the cutoff sleeve. Russell logo was on the back collar on home vests.

Teal billed cap is used less and less, the compass cap only once or twice.

The road cut-off-sleeve vest doesn't return. To celebrate the move to Safeco Field, a new navy (almost black) alternate with piping and "Seattle" on the front debuts at the new home. Later, it's used on the road as well. The compass cap is not used.
