So I have been looking at logos, teams, and batting practice hats around the MLB lately and have been thinking of ways that I think teams could better use the freedoms of batting practice hat design.

So many teams had great opportunities to create a masterpiece when the new Diamond Era BP hats were being designed, but many of them dropped the ball. So for some teams I am suggesting a full on replacement, and others I am simply suggesting they use designs like mine as an alternate or road bp hat.

First off let's start with the Tampa Bay Rays:

This team wanted to be able to create an identity that the Fans could choose the meaning of when they changed from Devil Rays to just Rays. This could imply the Ray fish population found around Tampa, or it could suggest the golden rays of sunshine encountered daily in Florida. They already have the BP hats that feature the Sunray logo, but they barely use the Devil Ray fish logo. So, I designed a hat that could cater to the needs of fans like me who LOVE the Devil Ray.

I suggest that this could replace the powder blue crown alternate hat, with the sunray on it, as the new alternate. It features an old Devil Rays logo that I edited to look modern and match the current uniform set.

could you do brewers next

I am doing the Cubs right now but after I am done with them I will do the Brewers, because they are one of the teams that I think dropped the ball on the new BP hats.

The brewers should've done instead of the front being white, it should've been their unique metallic gold

What I'm thinking is that they should have done the tan/gold color for the center and then had the bill on dot be navy blue.

I love the Rays BP cap because it's nice to see the Devil Ray return to the cap. I might have to buy one if it were real.

Exactly, so it can be a modernization of their alt bp hat

But I am talking about the entire crown. Not just the front two panels of the hat.

However, now that I think about it, the front gold panels could look beautiful, like a Brewers version of the beautiful orioles bp hat.

could you make bp jerseys?

Yeah if I get a good template I can design the jerseys, too.

Here is the Chicago Cubs:

I hate that they just took their old Road hat from the early 2000's and switched to colors of the C inside out and called that a batting practice hat. I think any of these 3 would fill in as a much better BP hat.

Could you change the shade of blue to the one in the link above

I would, but this season the cubs changed back to a pure royal instead of that dark royal shade. All of their merchandise is now in that pure blue color.

And the other designs in dark royal (which just looks Navy to me):
