Exactly one week before the play ball for the 2023 season, the champions of the Mexican Baseball League (LMB), the Leones de Yucatán, unveiled another of the skins that will be worn during the campaign, where they will defend the title won last year and with their sights set on a historic two-time championship, with the model featuring an image of an emblematic site in the city, the Monumento a la Patria (Monument to the Homeland).
Previously, the Melenudos unveiled a white jersey, which is expected to become the home uniform, and later announced a second jersey with the colors of the Yucatán flag.
On this occasion, the fieras unveiled an alternative jersey, in black, with gold trim and including a silhouette of the Monumento a la Patria, on Paseo de Montejo, a traditional and historic place in the Yucatan capital, where the jaguars even celebrated with their fans the fifth pennant in the history of the franchise, last September.
The jersey features the new Leones typography on the front, along with the shield of the recently won crown and the logo of the Yucatecan flag.
On the edge of the sleeves is the glyph of the Feathered Serpent, a symbol of Mayan mythology in honor of the temple of Kukulcan, and on the left side is the shield of the lion with the five stars for the pennants won in 1957, 1984, 2006, 2018.1 and 2022.
From the middle part of the garment downwards, and slightly on the left side, the Monumento a la Patria (Monument to the Homeland) stands out, with which the Leones seek to exalt Yucatán.
Melenudos fans can already purchase this beautiful, elegant and cultural model, made by Deportes El Siglo, at the Leoneshop stores in Plaza Altabrisa, Galerías Mérida and Parque Kukulcán; as well as online at leones.mx.
The fieras will open the season on Thursday, April 20, as visitors against the Bravos de León, in the Mexican Bajío, but on April 25, the opening ceremony and first home game will take place when they host the Guerreros de Oaxaca.
