Atlanta Braves avoid PR nightmare with new modified batting practice caps

New Braves batting practice cap.

New Braves batting practice cap.

Remember when the new batting practice caps were released and the Atlanta Braves got a lot of heat for their design?

It appears that the pressure to change the cap got to the team and they will not be going with the original design. Instead, they are going with the simple “A” logo for their batting practice cap.

This was something that a lot of people expected but until we actually saw it, it was just a lot of wondering whether or not the Braves would avoid potential disaster.

Now that we know what they are wearing, do you think it’s the right move? Should they have changed it? To be safe, I think that it was the smartest PR move. But was a it a cop out by the team? We’ll see how the public reacts to this.

I was OK with the original cap. But I have no Native American roots so its image doesn’t have the same meaning to me as it does to them.
