Ok, I know there has been a lot of tension around this site lately with trolls and "dark cloud" posters and what not. I figured that I should throw a match onto this whole smoldering pile of oily rags by starting a debate over perhaps the most volatile issue in baseball today: the rally cap.

As far as I know, there are two basic varities(link (http://www.rallycapcouriers.com/pages/rc_styles.html)), the "inside-out" and the shark-fin, or the "crusher", as it is called here. So, which one is it?

For the record, I shall vote "shark-fin". Also for the record, the last time I "shark-finned" it, it didn't work.

you've got it all wrong. don't ruin a perfectly good hat especially since neither works.

what you do is hold it upside down like you're panhandling and oscillate it back and forth.

this denotes that the present hitter is "money".


this is how you have a rally. everything else is bush league superstition.

This is the first I have heard of this. Sounds kinda complicated. :?:

Plus, my arm always tires out quickly when I'm oscillating it.

Remember when Rocky Biddle used to fold up his hat into what appeard to be a little hat and wear it on his head as a rally cap? I thought that was hilarious. Does anyone know how he did it?

Agreed! This is the only Rally Cap my book.
It has a pretty high success rate as well.:D:

There is also the variation of either keeping the hat normal, raised up with a ball crushing down the middle or also working a ball into sitting on the brim of your cap, either normal or inside out.

The inside out is definitely the most traditional. Although I believe each type of rally cap has it's moments, however in the bigs it takes a special team and special season to get results.

At 20-plus bucks a pop, I'm going to mangle a cap for some dumb superstition? ... I don't think so.
