• Ichrio’s Lower Crown Cap

    Posted by on June 20th, 2013 · Comments (2)

    More on this here.

    I have to say, my wife hates the “traditional Brooklyn style crown” cap. When I wear it, she says that I look like Herman Munster. Yet, I’m an old-school guy. So, I wear it…when sporting a Yankees cap.

    That said, I do like the feel, sometimes, of the low/no crown cap – as long as the bill of the cap still looks “right.” (There’s nothing worse than a bill that’s not wide enough where it makes it look like someone could walk the plank off the top of your head.)

    Back to Ichiro, I believe that he and Joba Chamberlain are the only two Yankees to go with the lower crown cap. Am I missing someone?

    And, I am surprised that the Yankees, with all their tradition and uniformity allow them to wear it. Then again, they’re letting Ichiro  get away with those black on the outside, gray on the inside, spikes that he’s been modelling this season at home (and the reverse version on the road).

      If Ichi were hitting .340 and stealing 40 bags/year… he could wear a coonskin cap with a beaver logo, an alligator belt, and flip flops on
      his feet, for all I care.

      I’m old school (gently curved brim, new one when the salt stains get obvious, etc… thank you very much) at heart, but we need production more than we need fashion compliance.

      My Kingdom for a .300 hitter with some gap power! What a parade of guys hitting .230, or less. There is hardly anyone worth pitching around right now. Go right at ’em. I think we saw that in the second game yesterday. Serve it up there and let the Yankees prove they can hit it.

      Didn’t Duque wear a low crown cap? CC wears his cap crooked.
