    Default Tigers new BP caps




    Also to be worn throughout Spring Training:



    I'll let you guys rip this to shreds, if you like, but I'm not a huge traditionalist, so I'm not at all upset. I like them a lot better than the old ones, with the random white piping...

    And here's the road ones:



    Not as big of a fan of this one. I wish there was a little more orange -- though I don't like the piping on this old one either.

    Home caps have a blue back panel, Road ones have grey all the way around on all panels.

    Really like these. I thought the old ones were pretty tacky, these ones seem like a better fit.

    Meh,......

    I'll tell you what I wouldn't mind for an alteration. Go to one version of the old English D or the other. I think I would prefer the home jersey D over the hat D, but would be fine with the hat D. And I probably wouldn't mind a white home hat with blue D and bill, but not a hat with just the front panels white and the side/rear panels blue.

    Well, at least they don't have Tony the Tiger jumping out of the D.

    My objjection to them is the manipulation of the "D" with the use of a border.

    If these were to be worn during regular season games I'd be a little upset, but since it's just for Spring Training, I guess I can live with it.

    I personally don't mind the braves cap. I think the rays sunburst cap looks like a kid with mspaint designed it

    I think it's sill that people find it offensive. I just think it's dumb that they'd use it knowing the trouble it'll cause.

    still can't figure out why people would be offended by a sports team being named after them, but I guess I won't know how to take it for sure until the expansion Las Vegas Boring White Guys start playing
    Put me on record. Prince Fielder will still OPS 850+ in years 7-8-9 of this contract. (sucks that my signature has to stay this for 7 years now)

    Paul Lukas reported on it in one of his UniWatch articles, so I'd have to think it's really what they plan to wear.

    So.....should Southerners be offended by the "Yankees" team name...or should "Little People" be offended by the "Giants" team name? How about non "believers" and the "Angels" and "Padres" team names? Enquiring/Inquiring minds want to know.
    It's pronounced Canada, and no, I haven't.

    haha. I don't think the braves cap its that big of a deal. Only people offended imo are small minded. Its 2012 almost 2013. It's a picture, there are worse things out there in the world.

    If the new batting practice hats help the team's hitting, then I'm all for them. If they don't, then I guess I don't have a preference. Hooray for merchandising and marketing, though!

    You may think it's not a big deal, but it's ignorant to call the people who get offended 'small minded'. Read a history book. The people and families who get offended are often extremely open minded, and have a great reason, like direct family ties, to not want a baseball team being represented by a cartoon head of their ancestors wielding a tomahawk.

    That's the problem YOU automatically associate it with something bad, you turn it into braves are savages. In the logo looks happy to me. Why can't you use this as a way to celebrate and remember a great culture.

    There's no tomahawk in the cleveland hat, but it's in the braves logo. Look, I'm not coming down on any side of this debate.

    I have friends who are Native American and find it very uncomfortable when their great culture is turned into a macot. You don't think that's a wish to be respected, or at least not label that line of thinking as 'small minded'?

    I like the Tigers bp hats. I even like the Indians hat. I think the big screaming head is very cool. These teams are allowed to do whatever they want, and as long as its still culturally acceptable they should use the heck outta their mascot.
