Wade Boggs requested a Devil Rays hat and they didn’t honor that.

Because it was public knowledge that the Devil Rays were going to pay Boggs if he chose a Devil Rays hat.

Furthermore, this situation is different, as the block C hat is still an Indians hat.

Indeed - that caused the Hall of Fame to take the choice away from the players, when Boggs sold his to the Devil Rays.  Was really bad form.

My only requirement, if it was up to me, would be that the player actually wore in an actual game whatever logo he wanted shown on his plaque.

Thome wore he block C his last go around in CLE

Why does he need a hat at all? Is there a rule about the design of the plaque?  I get that baseball players are usually more recognizeable with their caps on, but in this era of players - even HOF-caliber ones - playing for 9 or 10 teams, it’s too tough to put a label on a guy, and some neutral option should exist.

Its not at all unprecedented for a player to go in without a cap. George Sisler’s plaque is cap-less:

It seems like there’s another one without a cap, but I can’t remember whom. Anyways, it’s certainly doable.

 

EDIT: Just remembered the other one. It’s Mel Ott.

George Sisler's plaque captures a look of displeasure. Maybe he's predicting how people will constantly forget him when describing the best first basemen to play to the game (he's 21st on baseball-references JAWS scale for first basemen).
