Has anybody purchased one of these bady boys yet? I bought one on Saturday and am happy with it. While they are pricey at forty dollars a portion of that goes to returning veterans. All of Major League Baseball are selling these and I believe will be wearing these all weekend.

Keep in mind that they will be giving camo hats to the first 20,000 on Friday to match the jerseys the team will be wearing.

I ordered one of those last year from Grandstand for a b-day present for one of my buddies. I figured if any place would have it, Grandstand would. Then, it was on backorder for a week or so, then they flat-out canceled my order. ****ers. Glad to see they're back again. Did ya buy it at the ballpark or somewhere else?

Are they wearing camo hats on the field Friday, or those red-white-and blue monstrosities?

I saw them at the fan shop yesterday, and I'm not impressed. Probably the idea of some marketing guy, and not in tune with the Sox logo/colors at all.

I think I read that all teams will be wearing the stars & stripes hat either Saturday or Sunday this weekend.

I'm hoping the Sox will honor the Navy sometime and wear something in this (http://www.military.com/news/article/navy-news/next-generation-of-navy-uniform-arrives.html?ESRC=dod.nl) color scheme. It could look pretty sharp.

Besides being patriotic, those hats would look good with the white 83 "SOX" jerseys.

I bought a red one of those just like it a year or two ago.

I'm still not happy about that choice by the Navy. I'd prefer to see them try to do something closer to the MARPAT. There was a proposed version, but it won't be implemented for a few more months. Until then, the old crap still gets used.

Sort of back on topic, I'd like the Sox camo uniform better if it were based off of the MARPAT. How awesome would that be.

They will also be giving away 1980s hats Sunday afternoon to the first 20,000 fans.

Those hats look cool, by the way, Skotty.

I would buy it if it wasn't a 59/50 product. I really hate their fit.

I had a black hat like that a few years ago (actually, I think I bought it right after Sept. 11). I loved that hat.

But like most things I own, it became too encased in sweat to function any longer.

Dishwasher will make it good as new.

Nice hat, I've seen the camo jerseys but I've yet to see a camo hat.
I look forward to seeing those.

I read something on another site that said the MARPAT design is copyrighted, so the Sox/MLB would need an agreement with the military to use it.

Did MLB ever decide what percentage of money from sales of the R/W/B hats would go to their military initiative? There was a bit of controversy about that (http://www.uniwatchblog.com/2008/06/24/catalog-scans/, scroll down a bit to "Cap-tal Punshment").

Cool hat Skotty. Oh, I'm so excited about the free hats on Fri. since my hubby and I will be there! Awesome! Last year we got cool clue navy colored hats on the 4th with a patriotic Sox logo.

The normal hats in the New Era Cap Corner at $35.00 and this one cost me $40.00 so I'm guessing that's the difference that goes to the charity.

$36 at Sports Authority in Deerfield. I was shocked they actually had the Sox one and not just the Cubs one. I've been pointing this out to the manager there for about 3 years that they only carry new Cubs stuff and their Sox selection has always been pretty bland. Maybe he finally got the message?

Why would they honor the navy:scratch:!?!?!?! Yall don't do ****!!!!! HOOAH!

It's awesome that the Blue Jays hat will have the Canadian flag in their logo.

Side note, I'd buy it if it wasn't new Era. I'll take American Needle all the way over them.

Anyone else with me on that?

Very nice. And a great idea. Thanks to everyone that supports the returning troops like my son, a big Sox fan, who is stationed in Baghdad until next March. He gets a mid-deployment break in early september and I am praying the Sox are in the thick of the race so when we go to a full homestand,it will be an extra exciting time at the ole ballyard. Now, lets kick some A's arse.

They didn't look so bad on the Cubs, since they're colors are red and blue, but they looked stupid on the Giants.

Meh, whatever, it's for a good cause only a few days.

Scars - that is one of the most well played statements I've ever seen. Hilarious!

This is right in line with some of the cultural sensitivity displayed by the street jockeys at Wrigley...
