The Cubs are giving away a strange cap

9 Comments

The first 10,000 people at Wrigley Field for today’s Cubs-Braves game are getting this cap.  Hurm.

The Cubs have never worn a cap like that as far as I can tell.  In 1931 and 1932 they wore an all-red cap at times.  From the mid-90s until 2008 or so they wore a blue cap with a red brim.  But, nothing I could find has them in a red cap with a blue brim.

Getting worked up over a free giveaway cap is about the most silly thing ever but, eh. I don’t like it on an aesthetic level. Is there some other significance to the red Cubs cap I’m not getting?
