A few days ago we brought you news that the Oakland Athletics had introduced a new uniform into their lineup.
Now we bring you their new lid.
According to Paul Lukas of ESPN’s Uni Watch, to match with their new threads, the Athletics will introduce a new road hat this season.
There’s not a big wholesale change or anything – in fact – it looks somewhat similar, sans the different color and outline.
Previously, the A’s wore a green cap on the road which featured a yellow ‘A’s’ font. About as simple as you can get. But the new cap, while still green, features a white ‘A’s’ logo and moves the yellow to the border of the A logo.
A lot of people weren’t thrilled when the Athletics did this with the uniform, but, it does give the hat a much cleaner look in my opinion. It also makes the logo ‘pop’ a lot more given the yellow outline.
It doesn’t appear that the home cap, which already has a white logo (though no outline) has changed.
