2014 Pensacola Blue Wahoos - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!

This cap features a fun logo from the guys at Brandiose. I always dig their work. This scombrid is a mighty surly one indeed. Notice how the Wahoo is gripping a bat with some mysterious phantom phalanges. I just trademarked "Phantom Phalanges" as a band name, btw. Nothing crazy about these sweatband tags but maybe one day they will seem crazy! That is an MILB batterman logo in Pink, White and Blue. I love it. If you have been keeping up with the blog over the past few weeks, you might have noticed the focus on caps from teams that play in Major League Baseball's spring training states. I've said this many times before, but the most hopeful time of the year for a baseball fan is when spring training reaches its final weeks as it is now. Being a fan of the San Francisco Giants, it pains me to see my team floundering in the spring instead of deftly defending the championship that they won last November. As of publishing time, the Giant

1958 Phoenix Giants (Ebbets Field Flannels Retro) - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

When the New York (baseball) Giants moved to San Francisco in 1958, their fans in New York weren't the only ones feeling the heartache of losing their team.  For decades, the San Francisco Seals were a major force in the City by the Bay.  They marked their last season there by winning the Pacific Coast League's pennant in 1957 when they were an affiliate of the Boston Red Sox.  The following year, they moved to Phoenix and became the top farm team of the newly arrived Giants who displaced them and this week's Fresh Fitted Friday selection is the cap they wore: I love this cap but it gets tiresome when people constantly confuse it for a Pittsburgh Pirates cap. It's orange not yellow, folks!  That green satin underbrim is what dreams are made of... Nothing but the best quality production from the good folks at Ebbets Field Flannels! Made in USA, every single time. Ride with Pride! This shot of "Willie Mac" is the best photo I c

2014 Fort Myers Miracle - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

This cap logo has been around for a loooooong time, and I hope it doesn't change a bit! Look at what's happening there and tell me  you don't envision yourself at a beachside ballpark enjoying a Cuban sandwich! Usual suspects of sweatband tags on current MILB caps in 2014 Standard MILB logo, but ain't nothing standard about Red, White and Blue! After last week's "palm tree on a baseball cap" theme, I'm actually surprised that a logo design segue could possibly exist between that one and this Fort Myers Miracle on-field fitted. I suppose the big difference is that this cap features a baseball growing from the palm tree which is a supernatural element that could certainly be deemed a “miracle” of sorts. What I find to be a real miracle is that the state of Florida is currently represented by not one, but two MLB teams. If a baseball could grow from a palm tree, it would need help from a billionaire entrepreneur like Wayne Huizenga

1989 West Palm Beach Tropics - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

I know it looks like a hat worn by the filming crew from a  Golden Girls Christmas Special , but this cap is actually orange and green, not red and green! While I'm not a big fan of the Miami Dolphins (nor do I care for dolphins in real life which is a story for another time) but I really do like the orange and green colorway. It exudes leisure! I know this blog is supposed to be about celebrating my fresh fitteds , but these caps are hard to come by. The cheapest fitted version that I could find was $50 on eBay but I resisted and spent less on a snapback.  Keeping things simple with that single New Era tag; sadly, the MLB and MILB logos need not apply here. I don't have too many caps with this white mesh material on the inside of the front panel,  so let's see how it goes! The first week of March is upon us and there is not a more optimistic time of year for baseball fans. The first spring training games began this week in Arizona and Flori
