FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Red Sox are changing up their spring training caps a bit. Here is the Diamond Era 59FIFTY model they will wear.
It's available on Feb. 22 at MLB.com and at spring training sites. It goes national on March 1.
MLB pushes new caps on teams for marketing reasons from time to time. Some players are superstitious about their caps and dislike changing them.
A few years ago the Sox were given white caps with a red "B" on them for July 4 and Terry Francona groused that he looked like he drove an ice cream truck. He kind of did, too.
