Dumb question


hormone

Recommended Posts

I'm too lazy to look this up, plus it's one of those lame little things that bother me, but what's the rule about the helmet matching the cap? For instance, a team like the Cubs has two hats. All blue and one with the red brim. They also have two helmets...All blue and one with the red brim. Some teams don't match their helmets. I believe the Jays only have a black helmet. What's the point of having anything if you aren't matching the helmet to your cap? Why not just use a generic helmet like the old little league days if you're not going to match them?

Back in the 70's and 80's, the Twins and Brewers had home and away caps and helmets that matched neither. The Braves of the 70's had only one cap, and the helmet didn't match it! The cap was blue with a white front, the helmet had a white front and a white bill. To answer your question, I don't think there is a rule that they have to match. The D-Backs originally had purple helmets with the snake "D" logo, and this was before they introduced their current black road cap with the snake "D".

I dont know what to say other then it proves how bad the graphite hats are and why they shoudl go away.

the jays have a minor lerague team, either A AA or AAA, and they waer graphite helmets, they look really sweet

Yikes I cant imagine graphite helmets looking good.

they arent shiny, thats why they look pretty good. and i like the gray cap too, but i think they should wear them with the road unis and change the jerseys to match the hat

Your right about the Braves helmet.

It's dumb. The helmet was originally just supposed to take the place of the hats that they wore while batting, so they should look just like the hats. It looks cheezey when a runner on third is talking to the third base coach and they have different lids on.

For teams that just have different colored brims, cant they make a removable decal (kind of like the static ones) that the equip. guys can just put on / take off of the brims? Same with the logos for teams that use different ones (DBacks, Phillies Alt, etc.)

The Cubs are just a better team than the Blue Jays, I guess.

My solution to the Blue Jays hat dilemma is just wear blue all the time. No graphite no black. Blue

The Expos wore a different style helmet and a different style cap in the first few seasons.

Pinwheel caps and all blue helmets. I think they switched to pinwheel helmets in 1980 before going back to blue helmets (and blue caps) in 1992.

Yes, the Cubs are the only team with a raised helmet logo. The Cubs logo is actually a red "C" embroidered on a white felt outline and then glued to the helmet. All other teams use standard plastic stickers.
