But this is the first time in my memory that the A’s and Giants will join the trend. New Era confirmed to me via Twitter that their batting practice caps will see the field during tonight’s game.
I think this might be an attempt to help boost merchandise sales or maybe just a way to change things up?
But at least this isn’t an unfamiliar look. These two teams faced each other numerous times during Spring Training, so these two caps being on the field together isn’t a first.
