Here’s the cream throwback jersey the Cubs will wear in the ‘Field of Dreams’ game
The Cubs will wear cream-colored uniforms that harken back to the late 1920s.
If they design it, you will buy.
Major League Baseball has unveiled the throwback uniforms for this season’s ‘‘Field of Dreams’’ game.
The game between the Cubs and Reds will start at 7 p.m. Thursday in Dyersville, Iowa, at the site of the filming of the 1989 classic baseball movie. It will be aired on Fox-32 and 670-AM.
Last year’s inaugural edition was a sepia-toned, nostalgia-inducing success, with the White Sox beating the Yankees 9-8 on Aug. 12, 2021.
For this year’s game, MLB again unveiled jerseys that have a look that evokes early-20th-century gear.
The Cubs, who will be designated the visiting team, will be combining looks from the late 1920s with hats from the 1910s.
Their jerseys will be cream-colored, with a small cub holding a bat surrounded by a red wishbone-style ‘‘C’’ and navy piping down the front.
The team wore similar jerseys as its home uniforms from 1927 to 1929. The major difference was color: The home jerseys were white rather than cream.
The navy hat, made by New Era, displays the white cub-with-a-bat logo, which appeared in road uniforms in 1914.
‘‘I thought they were cool,’’ manager David Ross said. ‘‘‘I think there’s one up in the [baseball operations] offices across the street that are the same jerseys. So I could relate. I thought they were really cool. I like the navy hats, the throwback bears — one of my favorite logos that we have.’’
The Reds will be in white jerseys with pinstripes and the word ‘‘REDS’’ surrounded by a wishbone ‘‘C’’ over the left breast. They wore that look starting in 1914 and continued on and off through the ’20s.
The hats will be white with pinstripes with a red stylized ‘‘C’’ and a thick red band surrounding the base.
Authentic and replica jerseys and hats are available for purchase at MLBshop.com.
Cubs claim Reyes
The Cubs claimed designated hitter/outfielder Franmil Reyes off waivers from the Guardians before their 6-3 victory against the Nationals. Reyes has struggled this season, slashing .213/.254/.356 in 70 games. But he hit 37 and 30 home runs in 2019 and 2021, respectively.
‘‘He’s had some pretty good numbers in the past, like some other guys,’’ Ross said. ‘‘We were in a position to take some chances and get some offense from some guys that might be struggling and have a history of some success.’’
General manager Carter Hawkins is familiar with Reyes. He was an assistant GM with Cleveland when the club traded for Reyes in 2019.
Reyes had yet to join the Cubs, but the team optioned Frank Schwindel to Triple-A Iowa after the game, clearing an active roster spot.
MRI exam for Hendricks
Right-hander Kyle Hendricks had a follow-up MRI exam on his strained right shoulder, president of baseball operations Jed Hoyer said.
Hoyer added that he would need to talk with the medical staff before determining next steps.
‘‘I’d love it if he pitches again this year,’’ Hoyer said, ‘‘but I wouldn’t want to push anything to do so.’’
