For those of you wondering if the baseball portion of the 2020 Olympics are still happening, I'm here to tell you that the Gold Medal Game between the United States and Japan takes place tomorrow, Saturday August 7, 2021 at 6:00AM EST.
I debated about which cap to post this week and while I do have a very cool 1940 Tokyo Kyojin retro from Ebbets Field Flannels, I feel the best way to cheer on my home country is to write about an American team.
|Luckily I have an 1951 Albuquerque Dukes cap that's also from Ebbets which not only sports a red, white and blue colorway but it's got a beautiful red felt "A" logo stitched onto the crown to remind you that America is "in the house" as it were.|
|The Made in U.S.A. and Ebbets brand sitting proudly alongside each other is a sight that never gets old.|
|The undervisor looks darker here than it is in fact but after a few wears it will actually get to be that color.|
No matter the outcome of tomorrow's Gold Medal Game, I'm proud of the U.S.'s overall efforts in the 2020 Summer Olympics. I'm fairly confident that we will win it all though and I am looking forward to the next World Baseball Classic, whenever that series ends up getting played.
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.
