The Orioles spring training cap is terrible.

That's a different O's hat than what's pictured in the OP. 

Hmm...won't load pictures, so I didn't see it, but you're right, the article is January 29th and hats debuted two days ago.

The link is to the "pregame" caps.  So batting practice?

He might have.  Apparently the teams were the ones who chose the two logos to use, so we can blame somebody within the Orioles organization for this.  https://www.forbes.com/sites/demetriusbell/2020/02/04/new-era-puts-logos-inside-of-logos-with-2020-mlb-batting-practice-collection-hats/#3f3b76d6310a

And Elias got rid of Brady so we can't use him as a scapegoat anymore!

Yeah, the hats are on the team shops sites.  If I were a Twins fan I'd pick up their "clubhouse" edition/pre-game hat.  Maybe that's what these are, the hats the players wear in the clubhouse.  So we have BP, clubhouse and then game hat.  Lot of changing hats lol.

Maybe they should develop a training room and bathroom cap. Make the players switch caps for everything they do in the spring. Anything for a buck! :D

I can just imagine the process that led to this. Jacob delegates to a committee of Julie, Bill, Lyle, and and Kara. Directive is to produce a hat by the end of the day. Has to be different than the regular season. All agree that all black would be something different. Julie and Bill want to go for retro, suggest the bird with the cocked bat. Lyle and Kara want to keep the smiling bird. Group can't decide, comes back to the boss. Getting to be 4:00pm and a decision has to be made, but Julie and Lyle will not back down. Pressed to make an executive decision, Jacob comes up with a compromise solution: Superimpose the smiling bird face on top of the cocked bat! Nobody is happy but it is now 5:00 and everyone is too exhausted argue, so the decision is made. Just another day in the Warehouse.

I'm holding out for the hat they wear for drug testing.

 

Put on this hat and pee in this cup.

Would those be considered “game used” or just “team issued?”

Sorry to steer you guys away from the constant debate and speculation on how we'll finish in last place this year and what players we'll be doing it with.  Wanted to bring this to your attention.

I hope none of you are buying this.

Is this a product of:

1) Indecision

2) Compromise

3) Incompetence

4) An artificially intelligent marketing campaign forced down your throat by the soul-less coin counters at MLB 

Oh, what I wouldn't give to have the dear departed Charles O. Finley leading baseball's marketing department...

Special cap for players sent back to minor league camp. Exclusive cap for Rule 5 players.

Oof, this has GOT to be a mistake!

It's as if they asked, 'How can we ruin the best two logos that exist on a baseball cap? Stack them on top of each other?'
