I think these are the ugliest caps ever. beating out the "ice cream man" caps from the mid-90's.

Where can I get one? :D

Hold the phone, are those Mets hats also adjustable? And, I'm not the only one seeing two shades of orange in the clover, right?

Adjustable: Yes. Good catch.

Two oranges in the clover: Nope. Trick of the lighting. The top of the shamrock is on a bit of fabric that seems to be angled slightly down relative to the fabric around the sweatband. A product, presumably, of the fact that it's an adjustable cap, which makes the sides of the cap loose.

Is this the worst ballcap ever worn by a major-league player? Quite possibly. Also, as an Irish-American of both Catholic and Protestant descent, I find the orange shamrock oddly offensive.* They'd have been better off just putting a Union Jack on that baby.

*I'm not actually offended. It's just that there's a reason you don't see a lot of orange shamrocks on St. Patrick's Day.

Ack! My retinas! Leave it to the Mets to put in the extra mile to make the ugliest thing ever.

And is the INSIDE orange too???

Shouldn't the inside of a baseball cap bill be of a non-reflective darker colour???
