All of the spring training caps and jerseys revealed

52 Comments

Last week we got a look at the Yankees spring training cap with the pinstripes on the bill. Today Sportslogos.net has every team’s caps and jerseys.

There’s a lot to take in. The one that is getting all of the attention is the Mariners’ cap which looks pretty rad. Behold, the return of the trident-M!

That’s outstandingly strong. There are some other good looks as well.

A bad look: The Braves’ secondary spring training cap, which has a Tomahawk on it:

Even the Indians are wise enough to go with a Block-C for spring training. The Braves use of native American iconography is not quite as bad as Wahoo, but it’s regrettable, and using the Tomahawk puts one in mind of the Tomahawk Chop Braves fans do, and that’s a flat out racist display. I wish they’d just scrub all of it.

Anyway, if you’re into spring training gear, go check it all out.

The Tigers are expected to hire Ron Gardenhire as the team’s new manager upon completion of a contract, per Ken Rosenthal and Katie Strang of The Athletic. Gardenhire, 59, spent the 2017 season serving as the bench coach for the Diamondbacks.

Gardenhire managed the Twins for 13 seasons between 2002-14, amassing a 1,068-1,039 (.507) record in the regular season and reaching the playoffs six times.

According to Strang and Rosenthal, Gardenhire was one of 10 candidates to interview with the Tigers. Others included Alex Cora, Mike Redmond, Fredi Gonzalez, Joe McEwing, Hensley Meulens, Dave Clark, and Omar Vizquel. Apparently, GM Al Avila wanted a manager with previous major league managing experience.

The Tigers parted ways with previous manager Brad Ausmus at the end of the 2017 regular season, his fourth year at the helm.
