and catchers report in 23 days. And opening day is only about ten weeks away. So as
the players gear up for Spring training and the fans gear up for another
baseball season, New Era debuts the newest caps to be worn throughout the
exhibition games and during all pre-game workouts including batting practice.
re-styling offers a slight change from the previous caps, including piping on
both the sides and brim of the hat, as well colored panels. The hats are
designed with an embroidered (and raised) team logo on the front and a stitched
MLB logo on a colored panel, on the back. Performance is enhanced through
“CoolBase” vapor management, superior drying, and shrink resistance.
Glam Slam would like to tell you that they are a nice blend of fashion and
function, the fashion part seems to be missing. Now some are definitely better
than others, namely teams like the Indians, Giants, Mariners and Yankees, but probably
because the piping and paneling are less evident. Sadly, the ugly awards would have to
go to the Angels, Diamondbacks and Red Socks.
positive note, there is no baby pink involved (yet) and they are not as bad as
the NFL’s sideline caps this year. You know the ones. The merging of colors on
the rims always made them look dirty or covered in snow.
But the MLB
offers a new version of these caps every few years. And the question on many minds
always seems to be: why would you want a BP cap over a gametime cap? Glam Gal
prefers the simple, more traditional looks, without all the nuts and bolts. But
many disagree and believe that the BP caps are not only more fun and more comfortable, but also “special” because they are so unique. And that’s why the idea works so well. In fact, the BP caps have
been the hottest sellers on MLB.com and continue to remain that way. Can’t argue with a money-making gem, right?
So if you’re
a fan who prefers a little extra flair, the new, authentic BP caps are available
at MLB.com and retail for $26.99. Check out the site for the full collection.
