MLB expanded to Arizona in 1998.

Inaugural season patch worn in 1998.

The white and teal caps were worn once, maybe twice, with the home vest.

Purple was used at home with the purple cap. Worn on the road only once or twice with the black cap.

This one's retail, identical to on-field except for the inside collar tag.


Sleeve patch modified slightly. On the purple jerseys, gold replaces teal trim for numbers and NOB. White and teal caps are dropped and the road cap changes. Black road alternate worn at home more often.
