2004 Lakewood BlueClaws - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

The South Atlantic League celebration continues this week with another Lakewood BlueClaws cap but this time we're taking a look at the cap logo that the team wore in its early years, 2004 to be exact. 






You might be wondering how I could be so certain that this cap is from 2004 and the answer to that lies in the heart of cap as the gold taping inside the crown commemorates the 50th anniversary of the 59Fifty cap. The only other cap that I've seen with this special taping is the Ogden Raptors cap that I wrote about in October 2017.

The logo on this week's cap depicts "Pinchy" clutching a baseball that is giant in proportion to itself which is fun but the logo is a little blurry. The team corrected this recently by mildly sprucing up the logo and below is a view of one of its alternate on-field caps which features the updated image.



I don't feel a strong connection to this cap so it's going on the Trading Block as I'm sure someone out there is was in seek of caps with the 2004 satin taping or perhaps and has been hunting for a vintage version of this now-classic cap logo. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you want this or any other cap from that list and you are willing to part with any of the following hats:
