I tend to wear Sox caps a lot during the season. What is YOUR Sox cap of choice?
For years I had an old beat-up adjustable one (it looks a lot like the President's).
Back in '09 I bought one of these and wore it constantly:
The only problem was that somehow it faded into a navy blue. Quickly. So, after this past season ended I decided it was time for a new cap.
MLB.com was running a "buy one cap, get one 50% off" last week so I ordered one of the authentic New Era caps as well as this throwback. Since it's ALREADY blue I don't have to worry about this one fading in the same way...:
My authentic New Era one is a little big (need to send back for a smaller size; [New Era must have really inconsistent sizes because I have a Giants cap that's the same size but much tighter on the my head]) and I also find that they tend to fit non-big leaguers' heads funny, so the above cap will probably end up being my go-to.
plus St. Louis and Milwaukee
plus NYC parks and Minnesota
plus PNC Park in Pittsburgh
