“This is 161st Street—Yankee Stadium.”
Those are the only words included in Notre Dame and Under Armour’s initial unveiling of this year’s Shamrock Series uniforms, but not much else need be said. The jerseys will be worn November 17 against Syracuse in Yankee Stadium and bear clear homages to the 27-time World Series champion New York Yankees.
The shoulders and pants include pinstripes like New York’s home uniforms. The jersey’s primary color looks to be a dark navy blue, both in line with Notre Dame’s home uniforms and the Yankees’ color.
If guessing at the design intentions of the simplistic helmet, the circular logo may be a nod toward New York City subway symbols.
Across the front of the uniform, “Notre Dame” appears in a script unfamiliar to Irish fans. It is one typically used by the Yankees, best-identified by the lead-in tails on capital letters.
The Irish and the Orange are scheduled to meet at 2:30 ET on Nov. 17, and broadcast on NBC.
