Considering the Replica BP hat give away matched this years BP hat, I am assuming this matches the 2010 Stars & Stripes

very interesting. i guess the question has to be will the brims vary in color for each team or will they all be navy blue? i really hope they make an effort to make these match better with every team.

I expect no effort, look at the last few.

For a team like the As, the hats will look horrible with a green or yellow brim and Patriotic logo. Having a nice looking cap that clashes with the jersey would be better than having the cap clashing within itself. They should all be navy.

This is the best looking of the three editions. I love white baseball caps. I have a white White Sox hat that I've had since I was a kid. Black logo and brim.

I love white baseball caps. This is still one of my favorite looks:

But I hate these silly gimmicks. Pathetic, selling out team identities just to sell a couple more caps. Shame on MLB for creating this lame promotion, shame on the teams for going along with it. I swear, there are times when I miss George Steinbrenner.

I like white caps, too.

But I hate the MLB flag caps. You're not supposed to mangle the flag the way it's mangled in these hats. And only a portion of the proceeds go to charity -- donate it all or donate nothing and quit making the caps. Quit hiding behind charity when it's an obvious money grab.

I hate the green St. Patty's Day jerseys or trim, pink for this, blue for that, flag caps for this, green caps for Earth Day, etc., special colored jerseys here and there. A team has its own colors -- wear them every game.

You want to take up social causes, holidays, etc., then wear a friggin' patch, ribbon, whatever, but quit messing with team's colors and its uniform presentation.

Baseball's a business. Always has been, always will be. The only reason they do anything is to make money. So, in a sense, it's the public's fault for financially supporting those one-off promotions.

Tkashi Kashiwada wow that's a blast from the past.

Just one thing if you must have a white hat make sure nobody on your team wears a white helmet on the field. If anyone has a picture of John OLerud in 1997 or remembers seeing Olerud will understand what I mean.

Olerud ALWAYS looked out of place, not just in '97.

I hope the Red Sox have the blue brim (guess red would be ok, too). It would bring back those two games (maybe three) in 1997 when they wore white caps. I liked them then.

I understood the helmet was neccessary for Olerud, but the white helmet looked weird. The old Jays with the triangle does not show it justice. Olerude wearing the full white helmet with the Mets in 1997 just looked very odd.

Yes, this is a BIG problem; however, what I think is a bigger problem is that these teams are pretending to be patriotic, especially when being patriotic is the super cool thing to do nowadays.

"No, no, we really are patriotic. Don't believe us, look at our caps... which by the way can be yours for a nominal fee."
