Thanks to a posting on our Facebook wall from Joel Johnson we now have actual photos of every new MLB batting practice cap for the upcoming 2013 season.
The photo appears to come from a catalogue, perhaps a NewEra one, still awaiting word on the original source of the image Unfortunately there are no pictures of the backs of the caps, so we’ll still have to wait and see what logos each team will be using for those.
What we can learn from this image is more of the specifics of the material and construction of the caps, they are listed as 59Fifty’s, the same caps used in regular season games, but using “Performance Polyester” fabric. Looking at the large photo of the Astros cap in the new catalogue image as well as the previously seen Blue Jays and Mets pics we can see the fabric looks to be ventilated, similar to previous BP caps.
Also of note, that Braves cap has not changed despite suggestions it would be changed before the season. Although, this could just be an old photo.
