Farewell angry pirate.
The iconic “P” on the Pirates caps will remain the same. But the Pirates are looking for a new patch logo for their uniforms in 2014.
The above logo of the pirate has been used since 1997 but the team is asking season ticket holders, corporate partners, suite holders and random fans to help pick a new one. With their input, the team will create a new logo for the team.
I for one am on board with this. In the past, whenever fans have a majority input on logos and uniform designs, usually it turns out pretty good. I want to see how these fans come up with what I expect to be a pretty solid new logo.
New Pirates batting practice cap isn’t a mesh stretch fit.
Remember when the Mets debuted their alternate cap? Some had believed that due to some rumors, that might have been their new batting practice cap.
At the time, it was believed that a new style would be infused into Major League Baseball when it came to batting practice caps. It was already known that a new design was coming for every team, but it wasn’t known whether or not they would keep their mesh 39thirty model or try something different.
Then the Pirates the other day introduced their batting practice cap (as you see above) and now it’s starting to make sense.
The above tweet is from a famous scalper in the Pittsburgh area. Glad he was on top of the news.
The Pittsburgh Pirates’ new home alternate set is an homage to the 1970s. They bring back the classic Roberto Clemente era jerseys along with a gold crown cap.
I like this a lot and even though it’s slightly different, it’s a refresher. Teams are now doing throwback uniforms more frequently these days and this Pirates cap especially looks really nice. I might have to pick it up — and I already have three different Pirates caps.
Check out the cap right here.
Yesterday was Memorial Day and part of MLB’s new promotion, every team wore their new Stars & Stripes caps. These caps took the team’s current caps and added a camouflage touch to it. I think they’re OK but since all proceeds of sales of these caps go to charities helping war veterans, I’m totally fine with it.
Basically for these caps, it’s not a major change to the design unlike caps of the previous years.
But one unique thing about these caps is that since the camouflage design is only logo-based, teams with multiple caps had all their caps re-designed. For example, teams like the Indians have four different caps, meaning all four got the camouflage treatment.
And for some teams, that gave them an opportunity to go a little throwback with their caps on Monday.
