COLORADO SPRINGS – The rebrand couldn’t be complete without a new on-field jersey and mascot.

As Opening Day nears, the Rocky Mountain Vibes unveiled their trio of new jerseys and Toasty, the team’s mascot resembling a s’more, at the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day event on Saturday.

The team now has three jerseys: a home, away and alternate. They are navy with red sleeves, gray with navy sleeves, and gold with brown sleeves.

On April 27, the Rocky Mountain Vibes unveiled their new mascot Toasty.

Vibes President and General Manager Chris Phillips said the unveiling was months in the making, and the organization is happy with its new branding.

“We’ve been waiting for this for a long time. We knew we had something special with the brand. And our whole mantra was, how do we bring back the magic,” Phillips said.

Back in November, the team announced the rebrand after the Milwaukee Brewers decided to drop the Colorado Springs Sky Sox as their AAA affiliate . The Vibes are now Milwaukee’s Rookie-Advanced affiliate.

The Vibes open the season in mid-June.
