The Royals uniforms will have a slightly different look in the 2019 season.

Major League Baseball will be celebrating its 150th season this year, and Eric Fisher of the Sports Business Journal shared photos of a patch that will adorn the right sleeve of each player’s jersey throughout the season.

That same patch will be on the right side of every cap on opening day, Fisher reported.

The Reds will be celebrating their 150th anniversary, the team’s website noted that Cincinnati “plans to wear a total of 15 different looks from the franchise’s history, beginning May 4, which is the date of the first Red Stockings game in 1869. The uniforms will be worn on select days over the rest of the season.”

Fisher tweeted a photo of the 150th anniversary patches:
