ATLANTA, GA — The Atlanta Braves unveiled their new city edition uniforms on Monday morning for the 2023 MLB season that will honor the late great Hall Of Famer Hank Aaron.  The jersey that Michael Harris Jr. and the rest of the Braves players will be wearing is a replica of the 1974 jersey that Aaron wore when he broke Babe Ruth’s record becoming the new home run king at that time with 715 home runs. 



City Connect Video Features Ludacris 

The Braves released a video of their new ‘City Connect’ jerseys that feature rapper/actor Ludacris and Aaron’s widow, Billye Aaron. 

The commercial begins with different views of Truist Park as a helicopter is shown landing in centerfield, and Ludacris and two others exit the helicopter in the new Braves uniform. The rest of the video is a security detail delivering the new jersey — to some people in a secret delivery.

The classic jersey is reimagined with “The A” emblazoned across the chest, synonymous with Atlanta’s nickname and a visual representation of the Braves’ rallying cry “For The A.



Long-time MLB Authentic Collection partners New Era & Stance have worked in collaboration with the Clubs, MLB and Nike to develop the official on-field City Connect hats and socks in order to complete the players uniform designs. 

“Over the course of its first two seasons, the Nike MLB City Connect Series has been the most successful consumer product initiative we’ve ever had,” said MLB Chief Revenue Officer Noah Garden. “The overwhelmingly positive response from our fans is clear when you see ballparks full of these distinct designs and colors. Our Clubs have focused so much time and effort with Nike to create these exceptional uniforms for their fan bases, and it shows in every last detail. We look forward to seeing even more of our parks filled with City Connect jerseys this season.”


When Will Braves Wear The City Connect Jerseys? 


The Braves will dawn their City Connect jerseys for Saturday games in Truist Park beginning April 8th. The Braves under current Major League Baseball (MLB) rules are only allowed to have four jerseys they can highlight from six Clubs across the United States that include Atlanta Braves, Texas Rangers, Seattle Mariners, Cincinnati Reds, Baltimore Orioles and Pittsburgh Pirates. Nike MLB City Connect Series will be unveiled now through June.
