1995 Bellingham Giants Cap - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

Chances are if you are wearing a black hat with an orange B on it, people will just assume you are a Baltimore Orioles fan which I suppose isn't necessarily a bad thing. That assumption however can become problematic if you are really fan of the San Francisco Giants.

I spent many years rooting for the Giants when I lived in the Bay Area of California but now that I live in New York, I need a more subtle way to root for my team. One way that suits me well is wearing caps from the Giants' minor league teams, both past and present. This Bellingham Giants cap is an example of the former and I really connect with this unique logo.

A simple design such as the orange B over the silver batter is pure elegance although the baseball diamond in the back reminds me of certain Brooklyn Dodgers retro caps that I've seen. 

The combination of the grey underbrim, white sweatband and the Made in U.S.A. tag from the mid-1990's makes me so happy. 

The black and orange MILB batterman flush against the crown completes the freshness of this cap.

I tried scoring some high-res images of former Bellingham Giants with notable careers but finding a good selection to choose from proved difficult considering the fact that this was a Class-A Rookie League team that existed only in 1995 and 1996. While I didn't have much luck in that search, I did find this piss poor quality image of former San Francisco Giants pitchers Russell Ortiz and Joe Nathan (who was a SS at this point of his career!!!) wearing the Bellingham cap and uniform: 

Hopefully someone out there is kind enough to share some good scans of Ortiz and/or Nathan's 1995 Bellingham Giants cards with me but until then, enjoy!
