One fitted a day, done my way. My love and passion for baseball and sports as a whole is translated through my collection of fitted caps. Most of these cranial gems I have collected through my vast adventures of Americas frontiers one dirt filled diamond at a time. Others in the collection have been purchased or given to me as gifts. Every Fitted has a team and every team has a story, these are my stories. The Fitted Diaries, One fitted a day, done my way...

Today I'm featuring the alternate cap of the San Diego Padres...and no, those of you have seen Anchor Man, San Diego doesn't translate to a whales...well you know the rest. This is the the cap that the Padres would normally wear while wearing their camouflage alternate uniforms (these are worn on every Sunday home game). The Padres have been around since the start of the 1969 season and have been a member of the National League of Major League Baseball ever since; to further elaborate they play in the Western Division alongside the Giants, Dodgers, Rockies, and Diamondbacks. The Padres had a rough start to their franchise history as they lost 100 or more games 4 out of the first 6 seasons. They have evolved into a more complete club as they have captured N.L. titles in 1984 and 1998 but still have found the W.S. title to be somewhat evasive. Maybe one day I suppose. This cap I picked up at Petco Park the home of the Padres three years ago. It features a forest green brim and crown with an interlocking S and D shaded golden. This cap can be found at MLBshop.com which I'll link below. have a great weekend, and come back tomorrow.
