On Monday I wrote about how this year’s Father’s Day caps for three MLB teams — the Dodgers, Yankees, and Atlanta — had leaked on the retail site Hatland.com.
Now MLB has officially released the caps. Like the first three we initially saw, the caps are all in their respective teams’ standard headwear colors, but with light-blue accenting on the team logos and a patch on the right side. Here are the designs for all 30 teams:
I don’t know about you, but I’m seriously weirded out by the “whites” of the Oriole Bird’s eyes being light blue!
These caps will be worn on Father’s Day, which falls on June 18 this year.
ITEM! Uni Watch Power Rankings Tackles Brown Uniforms
The recent death of Jim Brown — who played for the Browns, who wear brown — got me thinking about brown uniforms, so I sat down and made a little list of brown-clad teams. I knew it wasn’t a particularly popular uniform color, but I was really surprised by how infrequently it’s been used. That led me to create a full-blown rundown/rankings article on the few, the proud, the brown.
You can read the beginning of the article here. In order to read the entire thing, you’ll need to become a paying subscriber to my Substack (which will also give you access to my full Substack/Bulletin archives). My thanks, as always, for your consideration!
