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...

Hola!, and welcome back to The Fitted Diaries. Today's featured cap is the fitted of the Mexico National Baseball Team. This cap in particular was worn during the Caribbean Series a few years ago. This team has played in a few global tournaments throughout the years and has quite a successful track record. In the Pan American games the team has placed third three times capturing the bronze, in the Caribbean Series they have placed 8 times with 5 silver medals, and three bronze, and placed 5 times in the Baseball World Cup of past capturing 4 silvers and 1 bronze. The team is currently managed by former Colorado Rockies great Vinny Castilla, who also previously took the field for the red, white, and green. The team is currently ranked 8th in the world in the IBAF rankings, with an almost certain climb in the near future. Some of the more notable players to don this cap in the most recent installment of the World Baseball Classic are: Elmer Dessens, Rodrigo Lopez, Oliver Perez, Joakim Soria, Jorge Cantu, Adrian Gonzalez, and Jerry Hairston Jr. The teams next major competition will be when they compete in the 2013 World Baseball Classic, when the field of teams has been proposed to be expanded to 24 teams; This is truly becoming a global sport. This cap I picked up on the lids website a few years ago, but it can also be found at the link posted below at the mickey place store. andale y compro!
