The Cubs are giving away a strange cap

Cubs Cap

The first 10,000 people at Wrigley Field for today’s Cubs-Braves game are getting this cap.  Hurm.

The Cubs have never worn a cap like that as far as I can tell.  In 1931 and 1932 they wore an all-red cap at times.  From the mid-90s until 2008 or so they wore a blue cap with a red brim.  But, nothing I could find has them in a red cap with a blue brim.

Getting worked up over a free giveaway cap is about the most silly thing ever but, eh. I don’t like it on an aesthetic level. Is there some other significance to the red Cubs cap I’m not getting?

    I prefer the blue Old Style wristbands they were giving away Monday night, although the Cubs logo didn’t go real well with my Braves jersey.

    If you stare at this hat long enough, and then look away, you’ll see the 94-08 road cap of which you reference.

    At least it’s not pink.

    All 10,000 fans receiving the free hat will also be entered into a special 5th inning raffle where the lucky winner gets a “One Free Zambrano. Taxes and transfer costs may apply.”

    Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. What, when you buy a hat like this I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh?

    That thing is enough to knock a buzzard off a shit wagon.

    Just change everything.
    Get rid of the pin striped uniforms, change the colors altogether, raze Wrigley and build a new one on the same site.
    And you know what? They’ll probably still lose.

    Maybe it’s a minor league cap?

    Perhaps just a marketing gimmick to judge fans’ reaction to a new cap design?
