I know its a little bit late, but this is the post for Friday. The fitted's you see above are those of the Yomiuri Giants. Yes thats right, 2 caps, a double feature because i'm soo late! The Giants play in Tokyo, Japan in the Tokyo Dome; the Tokyo Dome is an indoor baseball facility which has been open since the 1988 Nippon Professional Baseball league season. The dome seats 55,000 fans for a game and has hosted 9 Japan Series in which the Giants have won 5 championships. The Giants play in the Central Division of the NPB and have been part of the league since 1934. Some former Yomiuri Giants of note are NPB Home Run king Saduhara Oh, Tuffy Rhodes, Jesse Barfield, Former Yankees assistant coach Roy White, and of course former Yankee Hideki Matsui. The Caps featured above have black crowns and brims, and interlocking Y's and G's for Yomiuri Giants. The one on the left is orange outlined in white, and the one on the right is pure white. Both fitteds have green under-brims, always a nice touch. These caps I picked up at a disclosed location, which possessed a limited quantity, so no luck on a link for these. Sorry everyone, see you all tomorrow...
