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...

Happy Birthday Jerrell
Todays post is a present for my man Jerrell Ray. Yesterday was Jerrell's birthday, and in honor of him I'm doing a cap representing his favorite team; The Cleveland Indians. The guy on this cap is in representation of the 1989 movie Major League staring Charlie Sheen. The film chronicled an Indians team which lacked talent and struggled through the season, but overcame adversity through unity and determination. Unlike the film, the real Cleveland Indians struggled mightily this season. The Indians, who play in the American League Central Division, finished the season 69-93. The Indians were established in 1894, and have won two World Series titles; 1920 and 1948. Along with those two titles, the tribe has 5 American League Pennants. The Indians play in Progressive Field, a strictly baseball park opened in 1994, which seats 45,199. Some former Indians of note are Lary Doby, Bob Feller, Al Lopez, Tris Speaker, Early Wynn, and more recently Jim Thome. The cap shown, I picked up at pennantrace.com a few months back and might not be available. It's got a navy blue crown and brim with a Cleveland Indians Chief Wahoo face featuring a cap on it with black brim glasses and a skull in the middle. A great cap with a creative design. Happy Birthday Jerrell!
