The move is not without precedent as the Yankees had ads on their hats when they played in Japan a few years back.

I envision a day where baseball uniforms will have as many advertisements on the jerseys as a nascar uniform and car. image this, lowes, home depot, target, Kroger logos front and center on a baseball cap with the team logo somewhere hidden out of site. :P
