A handful of this year’s MLB batting practice caps (not to be confused with the spring training caps or clubhouse caps) appeared on a lifestyle website earlier this week. Now almost the entire set — for every team but the Mets — has appeared on ShopJustSports.com.
Update: The caps now appear to have been removed from that site. Fortunately, I downloaded the cap images:
National League East
National League Central
National League West
American League East
American League Central
American League West
A few notes:
- As I mentioned at the top of this article, for some reason the Mets’ version isn’t yet available (at least on this particular website).
- There are two Dodgers caps — presumably one home and one road.
- Speaking of the Dodgers, their caps appear to be the only ones with side patches.
- The Detroit cap feels like a road design. Maybe there’s a corresponding home version that’s not yet available..?
- It turns out that the Orioles mystery cap from last week is part of this product line.
- Oh man, that Phillies cap is too much. Kudos to whoever pulled the trigger on that.
- Many of the other designs are very nice. Not all of them, but most of them. Well done (or at least well-ish done), MLB.
(My thanks to Ken Bartelt and a reader who prefers to remain nameless for letting me know about these.)
