MLB to debut USA flag caps on July 4th
Major League Baseball has unveiled their newest novelty item, caps that all teams will wear on July 4th and September 11th, with their team logo emblazoned with the American flag. The hats look pretty cool and each one is navy blue. There is some controversy surrounding the headwear, though, with some concerned about the amount of money that will go to charity from the proceeds and the fact that the Indians "Chief Wahoo" logo is plastered with the stars and stripes. At any rate, this is a pretty good marketing idea and gives the fans a little something different to see on those days. The best is the Blue Jays hat with the Canadian flag screened over the logo.
