Acting on a suggestion Owl great Lance Berkman made to his former head coach Wayne Graham, Rice baseball announced a new addition to its uniform lineup for the 2014 season.
Inspired by the iconic St. Louis Cardinals' jersey, the new alternate top features two owls perched atop a bat. With Adidas as the official uniform supplier for Rice Athletics, coach Graham took Berkman's suggestion to introduce something new.
"We wanted to stay with our traditional look," said coach Graham, "but also be innovative and pay homage to a classic, beautiful look like that of the Cardinals.
"This doesn't replace our traditional uniforms," coach Graham explained. "They are simply an addition that gives us a chance to showcase the owl mascot."
In conjunction with the announcement, the RBI Club is pleased to offer its members the opportunity to be the first to get their hands on the new jersey. Current RBI members can purchase the owl jersey for $125 apiece. Also, as a courtesy to Owl Club members, the RBI Club is partnering with the Owl Club to offer the jersey to its members at the 'Sammy' level or higher for $125.
Jerseys will be sold to the general public for $165. More information will be sent to members shortly and orders are due by December 20 (Friday). The jerseys will make great holiday presents for the Rice Baseball fan in your life!
