The Los Angeles Angels unveiled City Connect uniforms inspired by Southern California's beach and surf culture. The uniforms will make their on-field debut Saturday when the Angels take on the New York Mets.

"In Southern California, there are few things more synonymous with summer than days at the beach and nights at the ballpark," Angels president John Carpino said in a news release. "Our City Connect uniforms look to celebrate those traditions by bringing the local beach culture to the Big A."

The uniforms feature a cream base as homage to the sand with "Angels" written in lettering inspired by surf brands, with the "S" meant to look like a fish-tail end of a surfboard -- a nod to team legends Mike Trout and Tim Salmon.

On the right sleeve is a patch paying tribute to the early railway that connected Southern California. The left sleeve features two asymmetrical stripes drawing inspiration from retro surfboards.

The cap features a two-tone design that pays tribute to the style often seen on skaters in Southern California.
