2011 Asheville Tourists Cap

I hope y'all didn't think that I'd slack on posting a Fresh Fitted today simply because it's Black Friday as I can assure you that is most certainly not the case. In addition, I hope no one thought they'd be getting two fitteds in some sort of "Black Friday deal" because I can assure you that is not the case either!

For this week's Fresh Fitted, I wanted to honor the Thanksgiving theme of stuffing one's face by featuring a variation the Asheville Tourists' Mr. Moon where he is happily chomping on some (what I assume are) BBQ pork ribs. This delectable treat is a staple in Southern cuisine so I appreciate that this hat combines two of my greatest interests: BBQ and baseball.

2016 Frisco RoughRiders - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

I had a plan to do something so innovative that I'd be surprised if anything like it has ever been done. Of course please let me know if you know of any site that for three straight weeks featured a hulking man with facial hair who is brandishing a bat or bat-like object. My plan ended up not coming together due to an inventory snafu on my part but it all worked out as I really dig the cap I'm writing about today. 





The current cap logos and uniform were designed by Brandiose, which is a San Diego-based design firm that has helmed successful rebrands for many minor league baseball teams. Every time I write about a Brandiose cap, I cruise to their site to see if they've updated the design and/or content and am usually disappointed to see that they haven't. 

Either way, I'm a ride or die (get it?) fan of Brandiose and this cap is no exception. I'm sure I'll end up getting my hands on the cap with the Teddy logo one of these days so look forward to that write-up.…

1990's Clinton LumberKings Cap - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

Writing last week's post, I had a vision as to how the next few days would unfold regarding the Presidential election of 2016 and how it would relate to the next post here. Well I was totally wrong in my assumption but regardless of that, if you love baseball then just know I want you to come here every week so I promise the political tie-ins will be minimal!

I really did think I'd be so clever by writing about Iowa's Clinton LumberKings. I asumed I'd be making a wink and a nod toward the team's host city as well as the name of the candidate who I had assumed would be the President-elect of the United States at this time.

Early 1990's Butte Copper Kings Snapback

It's been just over a month since I've last featured a snapback but now I feel compelled to write about one after learning some interesting information while researching the origins of the Casper Ghosts last week. I learned that the Pioneer League team was originally known as the Butte Copper Kings, which is a cap that I own and haven't featured yet… until now!





I don't know who #44 was on the Copper Kings but I can think of three spectacular players who did  have this uniform number: Hank AaronWillie McCovey and Reggie Jackson. Another connection to this number is the United States presidential transition from the 44th president to the 45th begins next week! Please no political comments. Just kidding; no one comments here! 



Almost everyone in the baseball world is feeling happy for Murray as his lifelong dream of a Cubs World Series championship came to fruition this week. Here's a fun article that sums up his journey of limitless fandom this year.
