NCAA 1-14 Uniforms
SECTION 14. The uniforms of all participating players and coaches of the team shall be of the same color and style.
It is required that each team have two sets of uniform jerseys of contrasting colors. It is the responsibility of the visiting team to wear a contrasting uniform color to the jersey worn by the home team. It is recommended that both teams wear the full pregame or regular-game uniforms when entering the playing field.
a. All uniforms must include numbers on the back of the shirt. These numbers shall be at least 6 inches in height.
b. Except for the standard shoe plate or toe plate, no player shall attach anything to the sole or heel of the shoe. Shoes with pointed metal spikes similar to golf or track shoes shall not be worn.
c. Polished metal or glass buttons shall not be used on a uniform. If a pitcher wears a helmet, it must have a nonglossy finish.
d. Any part of an undershirt exposed to view shall be of the same solid color other than white. Sleeve lengths may vary for each individual, but each player must wear sleeves of approximately the same length (torn or ragged sleeves are prohibited). Compression-type sleeves, if worn by a pitcher, must be covered by an undershirt. A uniform shall not contain a pattern that imitates or suggests the shape of a baseball.
e. A player or coach may wear a jacket under the uniform top if it is the same color as the team’s undershirts. Only a pitcher may wear a jacket as an outer garment while as a base runner. When worn, it is to be buttoned or zipped. A pitcher may wear a jacket under the uniform top while batting. No other player is permitted to wear a jacket as the outer garment while serving as a base runner, a batter or a defensive player.
f. When coaching the bases, the uniform game jersey must be worn. If a team jacket or windshirt is worn, it must include the team’s official logo and be consistent with the team’s uniform color and apparel. If both coaches opt to wear a jacket, the jackets must be uniform. At all other times, coaches are allowed to wear a team-issued jacket or windshirt.
g. It is required that base coaches wear a helmet. Play will not continue until compliance with this rule is met. It is recommended that the helmet meet NOCSAE standards.
h. A player or coach must wear a team hat on the field.
i. In accordance with NCAA Bylaw 12.5.4-(b):
1) An institution’s uniform or an item of apparel (e.g., team jersey, socks) that is worn by a student-athlete while representing the institution in intercollegiate baseball may contain only a single manufacturer’s or distributor’s logo or trademark on the outside of the apparel (regardless of the visibility of the logo or trademark). The logo or trademark must be contained within a four-sided geometrical figure (e.g., rectangle, square, parallelogram) that does not exceed 2¼ square inches. The item of apparel may contain more than one manufacturer’s or distributor’s logo or trademark on the inside of the apparel, provided the logo or trademark is not visible.
2) A single manufacturer’s or distributor’s logo or trademark, not to exceed 2¼ square inches, may appear on both the jersey and pants of a studentathlete’s uniform.
3) If an institution’s uniform or any item of apparel worn by a student-athlete in competition contains washing instructions on the outside of the apparel or on a patch that also includes the manufacturer’s or distributor’s logo or trademark, the entire patch must be contained within a four-sided, geometrical figure (e.g., rectangle, square, parallelogram) that does not exceed 2¼ square inches.
4) The restriction on the size of a manufacturer’s or distributor’s logo or trademark is applicable to all apparel worn by student-athletes during the conduct of the institution’s competition, which includes any pregame or postgame activities (e.g., postgame celebrations on the field, pregame or postgame press conferences) involving student-athletes.
