Extreme Makeover

The minor leagues in Augusta are looking a little less minor these days. The Augusta Greenjackets received a professional makeover courtesy of the new ownership at Ripken Baseball.

The Jackets have a new logo, uniforms and website. The new look incorporates orange into the team colors but don't just to conclusions.

Billy Ripken, Cal's younger brother and a 12-year major league vet in his own right, says they had no hidden agenda and weren't trying to get a touch of the Orioles into their new team.

He says the orange for the Greenjackets is because of the team's affiliation with the San Francisco Giants.

You can check out all the changes and the team's brand new website at Greenjacketsbaseball.com.
