It’s been over a month since I predicted that they’d be all the rage this winter, and now finally they’re available:
Next weekend, fans will finally be able to buy Phillies ear-flap caps, like the one Jimmy Rollins wore during the victorious World Series homestand in late October. At first, however, they’ll only be sold at the team’s Majestic Clubhouse store at Citizens Bank Park . . . Other retailers won’t get the caps until March, according to New Era, the exclusive provider of caps for Major-League Baseball.
Um, yeah. Because those things are gonna just fly off the shelves just as the weather starts to warm up. Still: most cool, in my opinion. I dig these hats.
Note: if they come in either Tigers or Braves (all-navy only, please) I wear a 7-3/4. Christmas is just around the corner, you know.
