I'm pretty sure he was talking about HC but I'm sure you're right about all that anyway. Just had to say I 1000% agree with you on the player shirts. I miss the classic flat ones. The worst is you look online and the picture still looks like the old style then you get it and it's all textured.

What do people think about the Mothers Days caps? Has anyone bought one for their team this year?

I'm ashamed to say the guy at Lids had one last night and seeing it in person I kind of want one. You can see on the players they're Chino AF though and have all the pops and bulges around the band and crown.

That's so weak they do that now but retail is entirely Chinese. Maybe it's just cause they're brand new then.

NEs logic is why make them all in USA, and pay that labor cost. When you can make all of the retail in 'Nam and only make team issued orders in Derby. Less Money spent making= More money to be made in profits. Sad reality of NE and all other businesses today. Same goes for The memorial day cap except in Those are China made. Even last years Fathers/Mothers and S&S caps were usa made for players. Exactly why i refuse to pay $36 or $40 for this years SE caps.

I caved and bought one this year. The coed softball team my wife and I play on decided on bright pink and grey this season (totally NOT my choice), so I figured I'd grab a Giants one to match.

I actually really like it. It's got a bit of a strange fit (made in Vietnam), but I absolutely LOVE the material. It's very soft and breathable and about a trillion times nicer than the DE BP cap material. I have it on the re-cap right now to get rid of some of that odd shape.


Honestly? I kinda love all of the SE caps this year. I can't wait to pick up one of those funky looking HRD caps.

The "hot" pink is the tough part for me. If it were more of a baby pink then I would not mind seeing all the players covered in the color...

Anyone watching the game tonight? Is Charlie Morton wearing a low crown or just a really well bent standard?

They're ridiculous in their design, I'm sick of the stupid heathered material on everything, they're more expensive this year, and they're all made in China. It's like New Era is repeatedly kneeing us in the groin and we hand them $40 and ask for more. No thanks.

Next year I would really like them to have their regular caps with either Pink and Blue logos or their regular caps with the ribbon side-patches. Those would be much, MUCH classier!

That would be a huge improvement! I just can't imagine there is a high demand (for game used or retail) for the Mother's Day hats the last two years...

Pirates are wearing their 'Military Appreciation' or whatever caps today. Man, those are rough. I mean, they're ugly on their own but they also don't fit with the tops they're paired with either. What the hell were the Pirates thinking?
