Get a look at the 2022 Cleveland Guardians’ spring training and St. Patrick’s Day hats
Spring training games have already been canceled in the wake of Major League Baseball’s lockout, but that doesn’t mean we can’t still get excited over the new Guardians spring training hats.
The Cleveland Guardians recently began selling their on-field hats, and much to the chagrin of some fans (me), they didn’t include the Fastball G logo at all.
However, there was some slight hope that the team’s spring training hats might include the Fastball G – though it’s way more fun to say Flying G – since a lot of teams like to get a little funky with their spring training hats… or at least they used to.
Well, the spring training hats (and the St. Patrick’s Day hats) are now officially here, and once again we’re all stuck with the Diamond C logo:
The thing is, these spring training hats look great – the spring training logo is always fun and the mesh back of the hat this year is a nice touch. Even the Diamond C continues to look excellent on this new Guardians apparel. But man oh man would it have been nice to get just one official cap with the Flying G on it.
Right now, there’s no guarantee our precious Flying G will be used on anything official for the time being, as the replica road jerseys currently do not feature it either. There’s still time to correct this – and maybe we’ll see the Fastball/Flying G plastered all over Progressive Field once the season starts – but I can’t say I have as much confidence in this logo’s use as I once did.
