Our first real-life pics of the new MLB BP caps

Written By:  •  Thursday, January 31, 2013

The Dunedin Blue Jays tweeted out a pic of the new Toronto Blue Jays batting practice cap today giving us our first real life pic of the front and back of the new style of caps, and it came with a surprise.

They weren’t present on the stylesheets we were presented but it’s there on the pic, a logo on the back of the cap above the MLB silhouette batter logo.

Paul Lukas tweeted out this photo of the front of the New York Mets cap earlier this week, unfortunately no shot of the back:

It might be safe to assume that the logos on the rears of all these caps will be the teams regular in-game cap logo, as is the case with our only example above with Toronto.

In case you missed it or would like to review what the fronts of all the 30 MLB team BP caps will look like in 2013 take a look at our division-by-division preview guides:

AL EAST • AL CENTRAL • AL WEST • NL EAST • NL CENTRAL • NL WEST

According to the Tweet they will be available for sale starting February 4th.

    What a horrible idea

    • El Dandy

      Why is it a horrible idea? I think distinct BP hats are a phenomenal idea, and I’m kind of shocked that this is the first year that they’re doing them.

    What a horrible idea

    I would have liked it if they put the Blue Jay in there somehow in the Maple Leaf

  • Jeason Gagnon

    The leaf is in the hat no matter what, they should of made a hat that Americans could sport out if they don’t want to wear a blue jay with a leaf, like a T.. But they’re going to sell these for sure, make that extra buck

    • BigBubba

      I wish the Blue Jays would’ve gone with a white front panel version of their current cap. I understand that they didn’t want to use the same design as the primary for the sake of capitalizing on merchandise sales, but this is just weak.

  • Sam

    It could possibly be a little jarring if the teams have the same logo on the back and front of the cap, like the Astros, but it’s not a horrible idea. Outside of Major League Baseball, it could be a fashion incentive for people who wear their caps backwards.

    Reminds me of the NBA Christmas unis… different for the sake of money. Most of these new bp caps are pretty weak, & useless.

  • Aj Crisp

    The Rays’ one is stupid. MLB trying to overthink things.

  • Yan Perepletchikov

    These are terrible.

  • BRian

    I hate the fact they are the 5950 hats too!!

    • Scott

      5950 hats are the best. Seriously you can BEND THE BILL. I have been doing that to my baseball hats since I was 10 years old, I’m 30 now, it’s not that hard.

      • Brian

        It is not the fact they have the flat bill, but I don’t like the fit of them and you can get three different hats of the same size and all fit differently. I like the 3930 fits much better. Oh, and thanks for sounded like such a jerk in your post. That makes your point so much more appealing.

  • LMWILL

    That logo on the back is horrible. I was going to buy a Phillies one, but I’ll think twice if that is there

  • ingmar66

    Disagree with all of you, I love these hats with an extra logo on the back and high crowns (59fifties). High crowns, in the so-called mushroom or Brooklyn style, IS baseball.
    Low crown caps with a so-called comfortable fit and a shorter bill are for middle management bank or insurance people who are still dreaming of a big boat (sorry, I mean a yacht), a sadistic and intimidating place for their kids to stay in order to forcibly destroy their sense of creativity and love for human kindness (sorry, I mean a private boarding school, preferably with a pseudo Olde English name) and membership of a bunch of fellow creepy narrowminds (sorry, I mean a country club). They usually want their caps to be pre-stonewashed and pre-shredded as well, for that neat worn look on dress down fridays at the office. They go pretty well with my pressed customized jeans, penny loafers (handmade from leather, chewed to perfection by poor women from the Andes mountains) and 250 dollar fake rugby sweater with my initials stitched as an unreadable monogram, bought taxfree at the airport of Singapore!
    My message to these people: stay away from 59fifties, stay away from watching baseball in a stadium (if you really have to, stay behind the glass of your company box and cheer only when your boss is cheering), most of all: stay away from me. Love these hats!

      Not a fan of the extra logo on the back at all, too cluttered and just looks ridiculous! Really hope the O’s cap will not feature this.

      However, I do love the classic 59FIFTY shape, and this post has to be the greatest ever when it comes to defending them against those lame, low profile, fake worn in caps! Thank you ingmar66.

    • jp!

      yeah no. you aren’t breaking some hip, generational stroke by wearing a 1970s farmer cap on the top of your head. I’m glad you enjoy it but no. it’s as stupid now as it was 35 years ago driving a John Deere. of course, i WANT you to have your hat. maybe it looks great for you. All i’m saying is sell both. give me the low crown as i don’t have to compensate for the cro-mag forehead.

  • boo

    why couldnt they do either or. two logos is gonna look congested

  • Jacob

    I’ll come right out and say that I like these. I think it looks really good for a BP hat, and wouldn’t mind one for myself.

    I like ‘em

    Are the Braves keeping their design?

  • Michael Q.

    A leaf for the TORONTO Blue Jays; how original…

  • Mr T

    I had a sample astros new era batting practice hat in hand which didn’t have the extra team logo on the back.

    • Sam

      Well, that’s good. Maybe they’re just for a few teams.

  • Brian

    I would rather have low crown caps with a so-called comfortable fit and a shorter bill who are for middle management bank or insurance people who are still dreaming of a big boat (sorry, I mean a yacht), a sadistic and intimidating place for their kids to stay in order to forcibly destroy their sense of creativity and love for human kindness (sorry, I mean a private boarding school, preferably with a pseudo Olde English name) and membership of a bunch of fellow creepy narrowminds (sorry, I mean a country club) than look like some uneducated punk teenager who doesn’t know how to fold a bill or take a sticker off a hat. I guess to each his own though.

  • Jab

    I think these look great but I agree I don’t like the extra logo on top of the MLB logo in the back. It looks way too cluttered. I hope they don’t do that for every hat cause I really wanted to get a Phillies & A’s and that may change my decision.

  • Max

    i feel like the blue jays logo is on the back only because the logo on the front is not a team logo.
