Hat Question

I believe the Rockies wore the purple billed caps last night with their grey road unis.

I believe you are correct, meaning the only one left (if they're still planning on wearing it) is the all purple...."ALT", I guess. I suppose the purple bill is the road cap? Not sure.

According to Chris's site, the purple caps are worn with the black sleeveless jerseys:

and the black caps with purple bills are worn with the purple alt jerseys:

The Rockies don't have a jersey like that. They sleeveless jersey has black sleeves and there is basically no purple in the jersey, so I doubt that they would wear an all purple hat.

since when did the A's have an alternate cap? I know they have the green hat with the yellow brim and "A's" in white...and the all green with the yellow

"A's". I thought that was it.

dont quote me on a time period but some where in between '99 and 01 i would say. and i think they only wore it for a year.

as someone else said. i really liked their BP logo from a few years back. i wish could find a decent on in the 5950 style with that logo.

The black jersey was made to be worn with both a black undershirt and/or a purple undershirt. The purple hat and undershirt was only worn once on the road in like the second game of the year last year (or the year before) vs San Francisco.

So then essentially the Rox probably don't wear the all-purple cap anymore, if they only wore it once. Would that be a safe assumption?

I guess.

The Rockies wore the purple cap, but not when they wore the black vest and purple sleeves.

The purple cap was a one-game (or one-series) gimmick from a couple of years back. The vests started last year and the purple sleeves were worn only once before the team switched to black sleeves underneath.

heh, IIRC the purple caps were used as a gimmick, as CubsfanBudman said, but it was for the first homestand of either 03 or 04, I forget which year. They were worn with the purple jerseys the first time around, and I think they are in fact official, just very rarely used. Kinda like the purple COLORADO jersey and CR home vest, seems like they didn't wear the former nearly as much as they used to since the black vests were introduced, and they almost never wear the latter.

I am 99% sure I saw the purple hat this year. Not only that, but they brought back the purple jersey, and have been wearing it a lot. I believe they have worn the black w/ purple brim every time they wore the alts so far (and I am pretty sure they didn't wear that cap last year). I don't think I have seen them in the all black caps yet. IMO, emphasizing purple more is a great move.

This is correct. The all-purple hats were worn for the home opening series from 03-05 and not worn at any other time during the season. The Rockies black crown/purple visor is worn on the road mostly. As for the D-Rays, currently they only wear the all green hats, the all black has been worn since 2004 and the black crown/green visor not since 2005. The Rangers have not worn the all blue with red T since 2002 and the blue crown/black visor since 2004. The A's only wore the all black hat in 2000, it is said that the players disliked the uniform.
