It’s all about the caps
While the spring training schedule gave us something to talk about, the release that caught our attention was the new spring training cap. The great looking new cap is all black with the “alternative logo” which is the buff Oriole bird swinging his huge bat. He’s swinging for the fences, just like the players do. Of all the MLB caps released today from all 30 teams, this is the best looking of them all. That bird is just too tough!
Looking a lot like the Players’ Weekend gear
The spring training caps can be purchased at the MLB Fanshop. These are good looking hats that will be favorites for many years to come. They are similar in style to the orange Players’ Weekend caps that featured the alternative Oriole bird logo, but the bat is slightly bigger on the practice caps. And, the black on the new caps is just too cool.
All of the MLB teams had their hats revealed today and several of them have similar to looks to the popular Players’ Weekend gear. And many teams have several spring training batting practice caps. For example, the Detroit Tigers have four options and the Tampa Bay Rays had three. But, the Orioles kept is simple and good looking with their one basic black cap.
Of course, the caps were released just in time for Black Friday so you can get one or more to surprise your favorite Baltimore Orioles fan with the great looking gear. Get them before they’re gone!
