The Yankees are going to be wearing godawful caps in spring training

22 Comments

Spring training is a big business now and teams make a special effort to wear — and sell — variations on their uniforms and caps which are unique to spring training. Which, hey, everyone’s gotta make a buck I guess.

Some of these spring training duds are better than others, however. As can be seen at Sportslogos.net, who was tipped off by one of their readers as to what the Yankees spring training caps are going to look like. Would you believe . . . pinstripes on the bill of the cap?

I think I speak for everyone when I say that teams should go back to the old system of working out in private in some secluded location like Catalina Island or some swamp in Louisiana, breaking camp, playing a couple of barnstorming games and then starting the regular season.

Some of you may miss spring training and I understand that, but this is for the good of the game.

Freddie Freeman’s X-rays come back negative

The Braves got a scare last night after first baseman Freddie Freeman was hit on the left wrist by a Hoby Milner fastball in the bottom of the eighth inning. It was doubly scary given that, less than a year ago, the same wrist was fractured when Aaron Loup plunked him last year, causing Freeman to miss over a month and a half.

Good news, though: the Braves just announced that Freeman’s X-rays are negative and that he’s day-to-day.

On the season, Freeman is batting .288/.468/.492 with two home runs, 12 RBI, and 12 runs scored in 79 plate appearances.
