The Pittsburgh Pirates will be showing off some new jerseys this upcoming Baseball season. It looks like the City Connect uniforms will be coming this June.

One of the more positive yet polarizing things that Major League Baseball has done over the last few years is the City Connect jerseys. There are alternate jerseys for the team to wear that is supposed to be more representative of the city, its people, and its culture rather than geared toward the traditional Pittsburgh Pirates. While it has been popular not everyone has been on board with the idea.

Not even that fans are against the idea of alternate uniforms, but rather when Nike and Major League Baseball and said Organization releases the uniforms there are mixed opinions. Some teams have had some really good jerseys while others have left fan bases scratching their heads wondering how Nike came up with that idea.

So it will be interesting to see what the Pittsburgh Pirates City Connect Uniforms will look like. Apparently, we are going to find out this year. The Pittsburgh Pirates Twitter account posted a teaser for the jerseys, which will debut towards the end of June:

For fans of the Pittsburgh Pirates, there is a lot to look forward to this season. While the product on the field is still shaping up, things look to be heading in the right direction. The team made some key veteran additions and they have some of their young promising talent in the lineup as well. It is a much more balanced team than we have had in the last few years.

So this might be a great opportunity for fans to catch a game in June. School will be out and by then some of the team's top prospects will be promoted, including Endy Rodriguez (hopefully). The video shares tease the skyline, which of course is iconic to PNC Park and Pittsburgh, so I would expect something along those lines to be involved. Other than that, it will be exciting as June approaches to see what these new alternates will look like, will they hit or miss?
