BOISE -- The Boise Hawks will have a new look to their uniforms for the foreseeable future.  On Monday, the Hawks, a minor league affiliate of the Chicago Cubs, unveiled new home and away uniforms, as well as a new batting practice uniform.

The new-look uniforms feature a number of unique changes, including a “scratch mark” graphic on the sleeve and pants, glitter lettering on the jersey, and a new alternate hat with the “scratch mark” graphic across the front. 

“Anytime you can do a change, and you can make it completely unique from what anybody else is doing, that's what we're looking to do,” Hawks general manager Todd Rahr said.  “We think that it's a real sellable logo and it's a real sellable type of change, and that's what we're looking to do.”

The uniform is also said to be improved from a practical standpoint as well, using a better material. 

“They definitely feel better than the old uniforms, which I know that when it's 100 degrees out, the players are going to appreciate that,” Hawks manager Gary Van Tol said. “It's a little new wrinkle in things that definitely will make people talk about it, and that's a good thing.”

The Hawks open their season on June 14, and will play their first home game on June 17.
