2020 MLB Batting Practice and Spring Training New Era Caps Released

They finally did it! Logos inside of logos.

The New Era Cap Company today has launched the official 2020 Major League Baseball Batting Practice Collection, caps which will be worn both during batting practice as well as during the upcoming Spring Training schedule.

Designs this year feature a logo-within-a-logo design for each of the 30 Major League teams. The caps are made of a new performance fabric — a light breathable mesh with moisture-wicking, and include embroidered team logos on both the front and right side of the cap. These new patches are replacing the annual Spring Training patches we had seen in that spot in recent years. The New Era logo is on the left side, the MLB logo on the back.

“We wanted to have some fun so we centred the designs around each team’s individual logo”, Tim Shanahan, Director of Baseball at New Era told SportsLogos.Net. “To do that, we decided to combine each team’s authentic cap logo with its alternative logo, which created a never-before-seen design.”

For those who want to take a look at the hat versions of the sort of food James Lileks had a career joking about twenty or so years ago…..

Larry Walker’s Hall plaque to feature Rockies cap, not Expos

NEW YORK (AP) — Larry Walker’s Hall of Fame plaque in Cooperstown will have a Colorado Rockies cap, not a Montreal Expos hat.

Walker spoke with Hall officials after he was elected Tuesday in his 10th and final appearance on the Baseball Writers’ Association of America ballot.

Born in Maple Ridge, British Columbia, Walker made his big league debut with the Expos in August 1989 and signed with the Rockies ahead of the 1995 season. He was traded to St. Louis in August 2004 and retired after the 2005 season.

“It’s a hard decision, being a Canadian,” Walker said.

So, will this please the people of Denver, alienate those of Montreal, both, or neither?
