Cleveland Guardians unveil on-field hats – which don’t involve the ‘Fastball G’ logo
The time has finally come – Cleveland Guardians fans can now buy the official on-field hats of their revamped team.
Baseball’s long, dark winter got a little brighter for Cleveland Guardians fans Monday, as the team finally – finally – unveiled its on-field hats, which are now available for purchase.
As expected, both hats feature the new “Diamond C” logo, which looks incredibly sharp. Right now, your choices include an all-navy hat and a navy hat with a red brim.
What is somewhat disappointing, however, is that there is no on-field cap featuring the divisive “Fastball G” logo. Though you will certainly find its detractors on social media, the fact is that logo is outselling the Diamond C by a mile and I, personally, would love to see the players wearing it on a hat.
And in case you were holding on to any hope that an official, on-field Fastball G hat might make an appearance at a later date, the team is here to crush those dreams:
The Fastball G is more likely going to be a logo relegated to spring training and batting practice/clubhouse hats for the foreseeable future, which is fine by me. The spring training hats in recent years have been especially good (along with the official spring training logos themselves), so let’s hope fans get a little variety like that moving forward.
In the meantime, Guardians fans can finally rock the official on-field hat of their new team. No word yet on jerseys, though…
