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...

Staten Island Wrecking Crew
Todays cap re-cap features the fitted of the Staten Island Yankees. The S.I. Yanks are the short-season A affiliate of the New York Yankees who play in the New York Penn League's McNamara Division. The Staten Island club has been in existence since the 1999 season, and have played in Richmond County Bank Stadium since 2000. The Yanks have 6 division titles and 5 league titles. Their last championship was in last years season in which they finished 47-29 and were led by manager Josh Paul. Some former S.I. Yanks that have made a name for themselves in the bigs are: Robinson Cano, Melky Cabrera, Brett Gardner, Chien-Ming Wang, Phil Coke, and Francisco Cervelli. This cap I picked up at Richmond County Bank Stadium last season, while at a game against the Aberdeen IronBirds. The cap shown has a gray crown, navy blue brim, and a lowercase "y"outlined in white and in navy blue. On the side of the cap the words "Staten Island" are printed. This cap can be found online at the Staten Island Yankees website which I have linked below. NOW GO GET ONE AND REPRESENT!
