Astros unveil gold World Series championship uniforms, caps for home opener

HOUSTON - The Houston Astros will be displaying championship gold on their uniforms and caps for the 2018 home opener after last year's World Series win.

The team unveiled the new jerseys and caps, as well as a new slogan, Wednesday morning at a luncheon.

The caps feature the familiar H over the star, but instead of an orange star, it's gold.

There is also a patch on the right side of the hat with gold writing that says 'World Series Champions' with the Astros logo.

The button on top of the navy cap is also gold.

On the jerseys, the Astros script is gold with a navy trim, as is the number on the front.

A large blue and orange patch with the Astros logo and the words 'World Series Champions 2017' adorns the right sleeve of the jersey.

The Astros said the new merchandise will be available March 19 at the Astros Team Store at Minute Maid Park.

The new slogan is "Never Settle." A large banner with the slogan and photos of several Astros players adorned a curtain at the luncheon.
