Hey everyone… two weeks till baseball’s back!
And with that we’ve got our first look via a leaked photograph of what we might expect with the new 2017 MLB Spring Training caps.
Via a poster on the SportsLogos.Net message board, the photo shows a New York Yankees cap in the traditional midnight blue with the Florida Spring Training road sign logo on the side, on the bill however…
Alright quiet everyone. Calm down.
It’s been confirmed to me that this cap is legit and is just one of two special New York Yankees caps the players will wear during Spring Training, presumably this is the home version and there will be a road one — with, let’s just guess… a grey bill instead?
Again, this cap is only for Spring Training. If baseball needs to let out some creative steam then doing so for games which don’t mean anything is the best time to do so, especially with a uniform like the New York Yankees.
We’re expecting the full line of 2017 Spring Training caps and jerseys to be released any day now as it was actually a year ago tomorrow that the 2016 collection was unveiled.
But the most important news of all this, again, is that baseball is back in two weeks. Exhale.

Thanks to Twitter user @RichieIsBack, a look at the Kansas City Royals 2017 collection. Both cap and jersey appear to be the same as last season:
