Cubs, Sox roll out new BP, spring training hats


Major League Baseball is rolling out new batting practice and spring training hats for 2013. While some have been critical of the new hat designs during each cycle, the league is going throwback for the new caps with contrasting front-color panels.

Many of the new hats have a '90s feel to them, just with the updated logo for teams like the Astros and Marlins.

Here's the Sox new apparel, which also drew a B from UniWatch:

I didn't realize how much I liked the contrasting brims until they were no longer an option. They just have a nice classic feel.
