Well, not really. The Washington Nationals unveiled their "City Connect" uniforms today. City Connect is a league-wide marketing thing aimed at showing teams' local roots. The Nats chose the D.C. cherry blossoms. Although it's a bit jarring at first glance, the unis grew on me, particularly the hat--it has a "bonsai-sh" cherry tree embossed on the back and cherry blossoms on the front, including petals falling from them. I don't know if the team actually knows much about the symbolism of cherry blossoms in Japan (but they may since there is a long history of back and forth with Japan on the cherry trees here in D.C.). Falling petals from cherry trees are associated with Samurai's death and sacrifice on the battlefield, as well as a symbol of spring and evanescence (no, not the band...)
