Hello clunedog-ga!

Even though we?re Red Sox fans, I gueeeeeeeess I can answer this
question. ;) Although the New York Yankees uniform is arguably one of
the most well known in all of American sports, I had never given the
color much thought until now.

According to the official New York Yankees site at, the
pinstripes were placed on the uniform for good in 1915 and have
remained relatively unchanged since that time. Interestingly, the
stripes are actually black. There were numerous cap design changes
until settling in 1922 on a . . . NAVY blue cap. So there is the
answer to your question: navy blue.

This baseball-related blog also makes reference to the famous pinstripes.

Baseball writer Harvey Frommer also makes reference to the 1915
uniform change in reference to other big ?January actions? within the
New York Yankee organization.

If you have need of any further clarification please let me know how I
can help. Play ball!

I think the question is pretty straightforward. How do you interpret the question?

I found this:

"Home: The Yankees' home uniform is white with navy blue pinstripes,
and an interlocking "NY" (different from the Mets interlocking "NY",
which was taken from the Giants) on the left side (right side looking
head on).

Away: The Yankees' away uniform is gray with "New York" across the
chest in navy blue sans serif font with a white outline. Navy blue
trimming is present along the ends of the sleeves.

Batting Practice/Spring Training: The Yankees' batting practice
uniforms are dark blue with the interlocking "NY" in white on the
right side.

A note: The Yankees uniforms do not have player names on them,
harkening back to the past."
