    How about one in kanji? Not sure how to make it plural but I did find this one for "red"

    Has has been pointed out already, Spanish was spoken on the continent before English and while English did become the predominant language spoken here, it has never been the exclusive language spoken here. Spanish, French, German as well as English have been spoken here for centuries, and for well over 100 years there have been Chinese, Japanese, Greek, Irish, Italian etc speakers as well.

    Someone tweeted a picture of this from Redsfest.

    I haven't bought a Reds jersey in years, but I absolutely plan to own a "Los Rojos" jersey by the start of the season.

    I teach at a school with a large Spanish-speaking population. The kids and their families are quite excited by the new jersey.

    Absolutely. Let's get some Mandarin in there too. Heck, in the name of having a little bit of fun, they ought to do one in Cyrillic.

    The apparel market is international. And regardless of where it's at right now, the regional percentage of folks with Hispanic roots is only going to grow in the next decade.

    Plus, why not? Sports is supposed to be a pleasant diversion. Throwback jerseys, jerseys from the future, foreign language jerseys, neckties, footie pajamas, ladies' intimates -it's all good.

    Los Rojos...I hate

    Rojos (just plain Rojos)...I love.

    I wish they'd drop the "los" part, unless they're going to start putting "the Reds" on the front of our jersey.

    Could be worse, I think the Lakers go with "Los Lakers" while the bulls and heat go w/ "los Bulls" and "los Heat".

    I'm not sure what the spanish word for "laker" is, but having a red and black jersey that just said "Toros" would be cool. I suppose one that said "Caliente" (is that the right word, been a long time) wouldn't be so cool.

With both Johnny Cueto and Aroldis Chapman as premier pitchers for the club and other Latin players, not to mention a plethora of up and coming prospects from throughout Latin America, I think it makes smart business sense. I say this as an Anglo too. I've loved the Hispanic Heritage day the club has had the last couple of seasons too.
    It's an ugly jersey, just like the BP jersey, and unnecessary in my opinion. I certainly won't be spending my money on one.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the Swahili, Chineese, Korean, and Hindi uniforms too.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    I'd buy a der roten jersey for sure.

    Especially if you added an umlaut over the "o" to make it look like a surprise.

    Would it be "Der Roten", "Die Roten", or "Das Roten"?

    Die Roten. But English is being integrated into German culture so quickly that they must just go with Die Reds.
