So, your Cincinnati Reds have unveiled their new batting practice caps. Are these the worst caps you’ve ever seen, or only in the bottom two?

Honestly, if these were all red with a white logo, I think I’d like them. I’ve had quite enough of the black on Reds caps, thankyouverymuch.

    Awful, just awful. Where’s the wishbone “c”?

    Is that the pi symbol inside a crescent? I do not like it all. Whoever designed this and whoever gave the okay for selling this were trying way too hard…

    I like the look of it…. but in no way does it communicate “Cincinnati Reds” – I’ve been a Reds fan for over 45 years and if you didn’t tell me it was a Reds hat, I wouldn’t have guessed it.

    It’s an entirely new logo.

      It’s the logo from the 1869 team. So not entirely new…

    At least, for now, these caps are just for batting practice.

    A few years back, they had an all-white cap with this logo that I thought was great. I agree with the thought that if it was all red with the white logo, it would be good. The red and black… I’m not a fan. Especially for $35

    Nope. I get the throwback logo but I don’t ever want to see it on an in game cap. But more importantly these look like someone left off the little propellers on top. Yikes. No thank you.

    Indeed. Hard to understand how they could miss so bad with these.

    So, definitely not my favorite…. but I can picture Joey Votto wearing them and that makes them about 13943804928x better. So just picture Joey taking batting practice with one on, and, voila, it’s more bearable.

    I don’t like these either, but I can safely say that those on Redleg Nation most likely are not in the target market for these caps … we’re old, folks.

    Bad, but as bad as ice cream cone ones from the mid nineties?

    Is that “The Reds” in Chinese ?????


    I think the cap is awful. Better to have “Nati” instead.

    just another way to squeeze more $$$ out of the people that buy the tickets

    I read it as at least it’s only for Bryan Price… which is actually perfect, especially if we add the propeller!

    I already own a hat with this C, looks great on and reminds people we were first. I like the logo, I hate the black. Unless the black is the whole cap its dumb looking.
