2007

90-72, 1st Place in NL West
Defeated Cubs 3-0 in NLDS
Lost to Rockies 4-0 in NLCS

It was a whole new look for the Diamondbacks, as they ditched their original colors and created a new image.  The basic logo stayed the same, but recolored in Sedona Red, Black, Sonoran Sand, and White.  The logo and uniforms were unveiled at a fashion show on November 8th, 2006.  The new look coincided with renewed success, as the team surprised everyone and won the division for the first time since 2002.

The new primary logo looked similar to the old, but with new colors and a new wordmark.

The snake "D" logo used on caps was also similar, but slightly retouched for the new identity.

The material of the caps was also changed for all new teams, as they went from wool to a new synthetic material.  Looking at the cap, and even touching it, there is little noticeable difference, but some other changes came along with it.  The underbill, which had been gray for most teams, now became black, and the MLB logo on the backs now had raised stitching, similar to the logos on the front.

Caps from 2006 and earlier (left) had flat stitching on the backs for the MLB logos.  With the new design in 2007 (right), the MLB logo had raised stitching.  The result was a thicker look to the white area of the logo.  This was the case for all teams' caps.

CoolFlo helmets were again used, only this time nearly all players wore them.  A new feature in the "cool" area was the introduction of "Cool Base" jerseys.  Basically, there were identical to the regular jerseys but made from the same material that was introduced for batting practice jerseys in 2003.  It also featured stretchy material under the arms, all of which was supposed to allow for greater breathability and movement.  The decision of which jersey to wear was left up to each player.  However, the Cool Base jerseys were only available in white and select alternate colors.  Because not every team wore the same shade of gray on the road, Majestic was unable to standardize the shade among the new jerseys.  This would sort of be addressed the following season by making gray Cool Base jerseys, but only in one shade of gray.  Thus, for some teams, their jersey did not match their pants, and players that wore the polyester style did not match their teammates.

Home

The new home whites feature an abbreviated "D-Backs" logo across the chest in red/sand/black.  Numbers again were not used on the front, and on the back they were black/red.  Player names were red/black.  The sleeves and pants were trimmed in black/red/black.  A new "DB" logo in the shape of a snake head was the patch on the left sleeve of all jerseys.

Home Alternates

Two alternates were available for home games, a black jersey and a red jersey.  The red was worn both at home and the road, but the black was only worn at home.  Why?  According to the Diamondbacks' website "because if the team were to wear them on the road, it would require lugging another whole set of helmets, hats, socks and belts, as those are black rather than the standard red."  With previous alternates, the starting pitcher was allowed to choose which jersey to wear, but that also changed this year as the team went to a set schedule.  Red jerseys were worn on Tuesdays and Sundays, whether at home or on the road.  The black jerseys were only worn for Saturday home games.  The basic white and gray were worn for all other games.

The red jerseys featured the same "D-Backs" script as the home jerseys in sand/red/black.  The back numbers were tan/black, and the names were black/tan.  The standard red cap and helmet were always worn with the red jerseys.  The trim on the sleeves was similar to the home jerseys but in black/tan/black.

Note the sleeve material of the Cool Base jersey.  Also note how the logo is split across the chest and doesn't always line up when stretched.  This is one of the many quirks that has irked uniform purists throughout the Diamondbacks' history.

The black jerseys harkened back to the original black alternates from 1998-2000 with the "A" logo on the left chest.  The back numbers were red/tan, with the names in tan/red.  The sleeves were trimmed in tan/red/tan.  Black caps and helmets featuring the same "A" logo as the jersey were always paired with the black jerseys.  Also changing from the standard home uniform were the socks and belts, now black instead of red.

  

Jeff Cirillo is the only player I know of who did not wear the CoolFlo helmet in 2007.  This was his only season with the team, and from 2008-on, every batting helmet used has been a CoolFlo model, making Cirillo the last Diamondbacks player to wear a traditional helmet.

Road

The road grays had "Arizona" written across the chest in red/tan/black.  The back numbers were black/red, and the names were red/black.  The sleeves and pants trim was the same as the home uniforms in black/red/black.  Red caps and helmets were worn for every road game, no matter the jersey.

Road Alternates

The same red jerseys worn as home alternates were also worn on the road.

Batting Practice

MLB changed the template that all teams followed for batting practice, now giving teams the option of two colors running down the sides.  The Diamondbacks went with a red jersey and chose to use black and tan for their side colors.  The snake "D" logo was placed on the left chest.  The backs looked just like the red alternates, as the numbers were tan/black, and the names were black/tan.

Batting practice caps were also changed, as the color stripe on the front of the bill was extended along the side of the hat with a colored patch underneath.  For the Diamondbacks, the stripe was tan, and the patch was red.  As with previous templates, some teams chose not to use multiple colors, but most teams did experiment with colorful designs.

As with previous years, jackets were also available to be worn and were indeed favored by many players.

Spring Training

Batting practice jerseys and caps were worn for all games, with standard red helmets used as well.
