Best Sports Uniform to Pay Homage to a Water Tower: Florence Y’alls

The recently rebranded Northern Kentucky Frontier League baseball team the Florence Y’alls introduced a new look to go with their new name. Previously known as the Florence Freedom, the team was purchased by a new ownership group in 2019, after which it was announced that a name and branding change was forthcoming. The team solicited fans for ideas and they whittled the possible choices down to a top five: the Florence Go-Goettas, Florence Fossil Jockeys, Florence No Sox, Florence Pop Flies and, the winner, the Florence Y’alls. The Y’alls name was voted on by fans and approved by Florence City Council. And to go with the new moniker, the team got some fresh vintage-inspired uniforms designed by Covington-based creative firm BLDG. The outfits are blue, red and white with red and white piping to pay homage to “the world capital of Y’all and our favorite Florence landmark: the water tower,” says the team (the water tower also dons red and white stripes). They also have a patch on their left sleeve that reads: “United we Ball, Forever with Y’all.”
