Favorite hats
Posted by Slosh (+701) 12 years ago
With Delino DeShields signing on to be the manager of the Billings Mustangs, it reminded me of the old Expos and how awesome their hats were.
I have to say, even though I'm not an Expos/Nationals fan, that their old hat is one of my favorites. What are some of yours?

There is only one. Well, 19 (for me) ... the good ol' New Era 59Fifty (fitted), size 7 5/8:

7 5/8's that's one big ass empty head you got there. No it's OK I take the same size or a 7 3/4 if I need a hair cut.

No worries. Here's one:

The Modesto Nuts have a pretty cool hat:



Or the Las Vegas 51's:



The minor leagues have so many cool designs. A lot more diverse than the majors.

Kyle, as a native of Seattle, I agree completely with you. Even if it all went down a few years before I was born. Although I can't be too sure that things would have been any different for the Pilots than they were for the Mariners in the 80s.

I like these as well:

Chattanooga Lookouts


Everett Aquasox


I just think this one is really cute:

Brevard County Manatees

Those are some classic hats you got there boys. I'm a little partial to the manatee and the 51's.

Lay off the foreigner you bully, pick on someone with your own size head.

Is there a difference between a hat and a cap?

Posted by Bob Netherton II (+1905) 12 years ago
Cap is to hat as chickadee is to bird....sort of.

A cap is a type of hat. All caps (not ALL CAPS) are hats. Not all hats are caps.

Now I feel like bustin' caps!
