Why did the Boston Braves have Swastikas on their caps?

Feb 16, 2010, 4:20 PM EDT

If you read only one blog post today that incorporates forensic analysis of baseball photography and an explanation of how swastikas helped the Braves win the World Series, make it this one.  Normally I’d blockquote a bit here or give you my two cents, but this one is worth reading in its entirety.

OK, I will give you one spoiler: Mary Magdalene’s crypt ends up being hidden directly below the rotunda at Citi Field.

    There was a building in PA you could see from I-95, since that section is an overpass, you could clearly see the swastika on the top, forever built into the brick work.

    Why people want to waste their time on worthless stuff like this amazes me. If people want to believe there was a Nazi party in 1914, it just goes to show how stupid one can be. the symbol has nothing to do with any party in 1914 through 1929. After that, it could be in play.
