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...

Apple Pie, and Baseball, thats what America does.
If only Abner Doubleday could see us now...America is the land of opportunity. Endless potential for jobs, starting families, and achieving great success and fame for doing basically about anything. One of the most profitable jobs in America is as an athlete in one of our fine professional leagues. The one were most familiar with on this blog is of course baseball. Let's take a second to get a better look at our national past times national team. Team USA baseball is nothing new to our country, but as we've mentioned before here at TFD the recent creation of the World Baseball Classic has drawn more national attention to the program. The program, which was started up in the 1978, has competed in past Olympic tournaments and various other competitions. In the afore mentioned World Baseball Classic tournaments, USA had trouble finding their way to the winners circle. They watched twice as Japan claimed the gold on American soil. Maybe in 2013 we can have our dream come to fruition and claim our place at the top. Some of the more notable names currently in the USA Baseball roster as of now are Derek Jeter, Evan Longoria, Jimmy Rollins, Roy Oswalt, and Jake Peavy. There really is no reason why this team should not place first every time. It's a shame they can't wake up and realize this is their sport to dominate. The cap shown which is the official on field cap of the team has a navy brim, navy crown, and and interlocking U and S with a star in silver representing the A. Classic cap that I've bought a couple times due to wear out and will continue to call one of my favorites. Maybe when Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper are ready to don the red, white, and blue we will take more pride in our program and bring home a title. You can find the cap below at the link. Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone.
