LOOK: Cubs wear blue jerseys at home for first time since 2000s


by - Senior Writer -

CHICAGO — According to Chicago Cubs play-by-play man Len Kasper, prior to Tuesday, the Cubs last wore blue jerseys at home in either 2006 or 2007. There is no official confirmation on the timeline, but Kasper tweeted about the rare wardrobe choice after seeing the Cubs sporting blue tops during warmups on Tuesday evening.

Taking on the Atlanta Braves at Wrigley Field, the Cubs opted to don the blue shirts on Tuesday night simply because it was something that the players wanted to do, according to Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald. The alternate solid blue jerseys are commonly worn on the road, but the Cubs typically go with their solid gray or white, pinstriped tops at home.
