Feb. 14 (UPI) -- The Tampa Bay Rays and New York Mets will be among nine teams that will wear City Connect alternate uniforms during the 2024 season, the league and Nike said.

MLB and the sports apparel company announced Tuesday night that the Cleveland Guardians, Detroit Tigers, Minnesota Twins, Philadelphia Phillies, St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Dodgers and Toronto Blue Jays also will don the jersey kit combinations.

The league did not give the exact dates the teams will wear the uniforms, but the games will occur between opening day and the All-Star break.

The alternate jerseys -- which feature different color schemes and references to each city's history and culture -- will be sold at the MLB shop, Fanatics and Nike. The City Connect uniforms debuted in 2021. A total of 20 teams, including the Dodgers, wore the uniforms over the last three seasons.

The Dodgers and San Diego Padres will face off in the first game of the regular season March 20 in Seoul. All 30 MLB teams will take the field March 28 for a league-wide opening day.
