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...

Light and Flaky
Just as I did when I first saw the logo on this cap, you might be asking yourself "what the hell is that?" The answer to that fine question is it's a biscuit. A biscuit from Alabama to be precise. The Montgomery Biscuits are the Double A affiliate of Major League Baseballs' Tampa Bay Rays. The Biscuits organization has been affiliated with the Rays since the 1999 season. Prior to 2004, they were known as the Orlando Rays. The Biscuits play there home games at Montgomery Riverwalk Stadium, completed prior to the 2004 season, which seats a capacity crowd of 4,500 fans. Some former Biscuits of the buttermilk variety are current Rays David Price, B.J. Upton, Evan Longoria, James Shields, and former Rays player Scott Kazmir. The Biscuits are a young team with an already rich history, winning league and division titles in 2006 and 2007 seasons, with a more than certain bright future to come. The fitted displayed has a royal blue crown and a school bus yellow brim. On the crown there is a caricature of a buttermilk biscuit known as "Monty", with eyes, arms, legs, and a slab of butter in its mouth. I picked this one up at the 2008 MLB All Star Game Fan Fest in New York, but you can find you own at the link posted below which will take you to the Biscuits Shop. Yet another hat that looks great, and will catch people staring for sure.
