2008 New York Yankees "Virginia Tech" Cap - Fresh Fitted Friday!!!!

This week's Fresh Fitted is not only a freshie but it is one that has a deep sentimental value to me as it is the cap that the Virginia Tech baseball team wore when they hosted the New York Yankees in a preseason exhibition game at English Field in the spring of 2008. 

As I've noted in a previous post about the cap that the Yankees wore during that game, it was played in memoriam of the Blacksburg Massacre at Virginia Tech the previous year. Tomorrow marks the 9th anniversary of the shooting, so today we will look upon the hat that the Hokies wore when the Yankees came to town.  

The Yankee's "NY" logo has seen many custom colorways but very few are as powerful as this tribute made to Virginia Tech

The Hokies "VT" logo on the wearer's left side is a solid show of respect from the Yankees

The orange batterman and eyelets really pop here.

This cap also varies from the one the Yankees wore that game in that it swaps out the Authentic Collection tag for the Genuine Merchandise tag and the underbrim is maroon rather than black, both of which are standard on customizations such as these.

Alex Rodriguez is shown here signing every item that gets handed to him from the Hokies players

This week's cap is way too special to ever go on the Trading Block however let me know if there's something you must have from there and are willing to part with any of the hats on my Wish List.
