For the first time in eight years, the Phillies have added an alternate jersey. It is red. It will be worn six times in the regular season, all during mid-week afternoon games.
The Phillies have worn red in a regular-season game at least twice in their history. The last time was for a Turn-Ahead-The-Clock promotion on Sept. 11, 1999. More infamously, the Phillies donned all burgundy — including pants — for what was dubbed a "Saturday Night Special" on May 19, 1979.
