Although there were more leaks of the new Astros logo than leaks on the the Titanic, Friday the team officially unveiled its new uniforms and logo, heralding a return to its blue-and-orange roots.

Here's the official uniforms and logos from the Astros themselves:

I'm a big fan of the move, having never really embraced the team's departure from orange in 1994 and then away from blue in 2000. The team is going back to the block H on a star that it wore from 1965-94. 

The best part of the uniform, to me, is difficult to see above. Although I've never liked the side panels in Major League Baseball's batting practice jersey template, I do love the nod to the old Astros rainbow uniforms on the side panel. Here's a screen shot of the jersey from the shop:

But wait, there's more. Orbit is back, too. The team used Orbit as its mascot from 1990-99 before replacing him with Junction Jack (a jackrabbit) when the team moved from the Astrodome to Minute Maid Park in 2000.
