Barons unveil third jersey

The Oklahoma City Barons unveiled a third jersey they will wear at a dozen games this season at their annual Open House for season ticket holders Tuesday night at the Cox Convention Center.

The new jersey is the same color combination worn by the Edmonton Oilers, the Barons’ parent club. The royal jersey has OKC on the chest with an oil drop below the middle of the logo. Orange and white combinations feature the Oilers logo on the right shoulder, the Barons logo on the left.

“We got so much feedback after the Oilers transitioned back to their old colors we thought it would be a good idea to put something different out there,” said Bob Funk Jr., president of Prodigal LLC, which operates the Barons. “This ties directly back to what they look like but still retains some of the Oklahoma identity.”

The Barons will still wear the navy, white and copper OKC and oil derrick themed jerseys they used last season.
