Carolina Pescados (Carolina Mudcats - Copa de la Diversion)

I struggle whenever someone asks me what cap logo is my "favorite" and yet one would think that being unprepared for the same question enough times would prompt me to correct that but alas, I have not. I suppose I have more fun rattling off the first five caps that come to mind as opposed to working with a scripted answer. 

If you ask me point blank right now about my "top 5" of current caps, it would include the Asheville Tourists, Vermont Lake Monsters, Norfolk Tides, Hillsboro Hops and Carolina Mudcats. There are plenty of defunct teams out there with caps that make me shed a tear of nostalgia but I figure if someone's asking about caps they want to hear about ones they could easily buy. 

Besides the Hops which is a newer team, the rest of those clubs have rebranded a few times but of those remaining four, the only one that's consistently had the same logo for their entire existence is the Mudcats. So when it was time to create an identity for the Copa de la Diversion, you know they had to come correct which they absolutely did with this Carolina Pescados cap.

It's hard to improve on a classic logo that is 30 years old and thankfully that's not what they tried to do. Instead, the team's time-honored look is reimagined with bright colors by and a sugar skull design that makes the logo seem recognizable yet at the same time, totally fresh.
Nothing crazy to report happening here but shout-out to the tealism on the eyelets.

A little exuberance on the MILB batterman here is much appreciated.

If you count last week's Padres post as Latinx-themed content, then that makes three caps in a row where the rich traditions of Spanish-speaking cultures have been celebrated on this blog. Next week is 4th of July weekend so rest assured I've got something fun and patriotic to share with y'all then.

Before signing off, I must inform you that June 25 is National Catfish Day so if you've got a Carolina Mudcats hat in your collection, make sure to dust it off and wear it today. And if you've got any Pescados gear, that's even better. Also, if you'd like a little background on why this holiday exists, click this link when you're all done here.

This week's Fresh Fitted Friday selection is not going on the Trading Block however please don't hesitate to reach out if you want any other cap from that list and you are willing to part with any of the hats on my Wish List.
