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...

Todays hat is the fitted of the Trenton Thunder of Minor League Baseball. The Thunder, who are the double A affiliate of the New York Yankees, play in the Eastern League. Before the franchise was affiliated with the Bronx Bombers, the team was previously associated with the Boston Red Sox, the Detroit Tigers, and the Chicago White Sox. The team has been known as the Trenton Thunder since their first season in New Jersey in 1993. Prior to that the team was known as the London Tigers. The Thunder play in Mercer County Waterfront Park, which is a baseball only facility in Trenton, New Jersey that seats 6,341 fans. The Thunder have 7 division titles, and have won the league title twice; once in 2007 and again in 2008. Some notable former Thunder players are: Nomar Garciaparra, Carl Pavano, Robinson Cano, Phil Hughes, Joba Chamberlain, and Brett Gardner. The fitted in the picture has a navy blue crown, a silver brim, and a muscular blue cloud-man wielding a lightning bolt for a baseball bat. Frankly it's a fitted that I love and wish I saw more of, SO GO BUY ONE!
