Baseball Celebrating This Weekend With The Red, White And Eeew!

Major League Baseball does a tremendous job in honoring all people who have or are currently serving in the armed forces. In fact, I have been impressed at how patriotic people have been over the years since the September 11 attacks.

↵

But since 2008, MLB has decided to honor America by designating “Americanized” caps for each team to wear for Independence Day. The Blue Jays get their cap “Canadianized”.

↵

This year, these caps made their debut on Memorial Day and expect to see them all this weekend. I have nothing against honoring America, but I have everything against these caps.

↵

They look terrible!

↵

Here is a link to all the caps.

There must be a better way to honor America than having players wear a cap that probably doesn’t match well with their uniform.

↵

Maybe next year there will be a stop to it. In 2008, every team had a blue cap. Last year, every team had a red cap. With the white cap being used this year, that leaves no more options for 2011. Maybe then the promotional department will find a better aesthetically pleasing way to honor our veterans.
