New Batting Practice caps from MLB and New Era introduce new designs for fans
Caps will debut during Spring Training
By / MLB.com
MLB and New Era this week will officially introduce a new series of batting practice caps as part of the MLB Authentic Collection that will be worn beginning with Spring Training. The new caps from New Era, the official cap of Major League Baseball, feature new performance technology as well as fresh designs for all 30 Clubs, including many popular logos that have never before been featured on an official on-field cap.
The Diamond Era 59FIFTY incorporates new NE TECH™ performance technology, providing players with revolutionary light weight, moisture wicking caps. Made with a new state-of-the art performance diamond print fabric, the Diamond Era 59FIFTY is lighter for increased breathability, and also features COOLERA™ technology that wicks away sweat to keep players comfortable and dry. The cap also features SOLAREA™, 50+ UV protection that helps deflect the sun’s rays, in keeping with MLB's "Play Sun Smart" effort to protect players exposed to the sun.
The collection will be available for purchase on MLB.com and at Spring Training sites starting next week, and at all major retailers beginning in March.
