MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins unveiled new home uniforms Monday that omit the pinstripes the team has worn since 1987.

The 2015 jerseys also added a gold edging to the lettering and a logo on uniforms and caps. The Twins called it "Kasota Gold," named for the type of limestone found in southern Minnesota that was used in Target Field's construction.

Pinstripes will still appear occasionally at Target Field when the Twins wear their home alternate uniform: a throwback jersey from 1961 with script lettering that they have worn occasionally since 2010.

The team's gray road uniforms and navy blue alternate jersey remain unchanged.

After the Twins changed their look for 1987, they went on to win their first World Series. They also had a new manager that year in Tom Kelly. Paul Molitor was hired last week as the team's manager for 2015.
