Teams across the sport of baseball have been unveiling their Nike City Connect jerseys for the 2022 season one by one. The Milwaukee Brewers became the latest to do so, revealing powder blue uniform that will be worn for the first time during the June 24-26 series against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The new uniform has no shortage of links to the city of Milwaukee, starting with the MKE & 414 watermark. Of course, MKE is the airport abbreviation and 414 is the area's zip code. The yellow and white piping on the sleeve represents a beer's foam head and the city's storied brewing tradition.

It's worth noting that the powder blue is making a long-awaited return. It is said to act as a nod to Milwaukee's summer sky as the navy accompanying it symbolizes love for Lake Michigan. The shoulder patch of a grill is meant to pay homage to the rich tailgate scene outside the stadium.

This is also the first time the Brewers have ever sported "Brew Crew" on their jerseys. It's a tribute to a loyal fan base that has regularly used the nickname for decades. Following the series against the Blue Jays, Milwaukee will don these jerseys during Friday night home games as well as community nights.

Fans looking to purchase one for themselves can head over to the Milwaukee team store at American Family Field, the Nike.com app or mlbshop.com. For now, The Brewers will focus on winning ball games and have odds set at +1500 to win the World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
