How to wear the cap
Even in the other side of the Atlantic we are dealing with that fashion that put everyone wearing hip-hop-caps.
I don't know how can someone use a cap like that.
But I'm too old school maybe to reach that...upgrade.
Other thing beside wearing those caps is wearing them a bit to the side.
While you might get it for people casually walking down the street, for professional baseball players I don't get it and don't like it at all.
See Fernando Rodney example.
That card on top is from 2002 Upper Deck 40-Man set.
He wears a normal cap in a normal way.
His 2006 Topps Updates & Highlights card you can see that the cap is getting a bit to the side.
But in most recent years like in the 2011 Topps set you see that the cap kept a bit to the side but nothing to worry so much about.
But then came 2012 Topps Update card and it's ridiculous.
Fernando Rodney is a good closer but that cap makes me do not respect him that much. Why? Because I think it is not respectful of him to wear the uniform like that.
The cap is part of the uniform in baseball.
Imagine seeing someone in the Army, Navy or Air Force wearing the hat like they wanted?
I know is a bit far fetched the comparison but if they use the cap even at night games it's because it's part of the uniform.
If they put the shirt inside the paints to wear the uniform why do they use the cap like some boy band?
Sorry but I don't like.
But Fernando is not alone.
But Hernandez is less evident.
He follows more the style of other player.
CC also likes to be a bit different. But you have to pay a bit more attention to see the cap detail.
I see that the pitchers tend to be quite the hipster ones.
At least Romo didn't follow that trend and only kept with the beard.
