A small detail I love about these new jerseys are within the blue areas. The blue cuffs, collar, and inside the numbers all feature sublimated tiger stripes. When I wrote about the softball team's uniforms last season, I contacted AD Jay Jacobs in regards to the use of TIGERS on their white uniforms. Jacobs replied with the athletic department attempting to brand and promote "Auburn" over "Tigers," obviously with many schools nicknamed the Tigers across the country, and with two within the SEC. The white jerseys are the only uniforms worn by Auburn athletes that read TIGERS. And the addition of the tiger striped areas to the softball jerseys, as well as the basketball team wearing the same design with their new uniforms, leads me to believe Auburn and Jacobs have loosened their stance on Auburn over Tigers. Hopefully so.

Auburn baseball has also added a new camouflage hat. The 2012-13 season saw a hunter-orange version of a camo designed hat. Last year, the disappeared with the new coach in Sunny Golloway. Well, when Golloway was at Oklahoma, his team wore a camo hat and top. This season's Capitol City Classic against Alabama in Birmingham saw the return of the camo hat, but this time in a navy blue. (Many people have asked if this hat will be available for sale - J&M has ordered them and they should be available soon)
