What a great marketing and merchandise strategy for clubs in the former Colonies. It looks great on TV and is better than a tricorner hat that you can wear with your road gray, home jersey, alternate shirt, or alternate-alternate shirt. For only $45.00, you can get this gem from Canadian baseball fans.
Jay fans and others were more interested in expressing their dismay than picking up their caps or muskets. Tweets, emails, and social media all confirmed that Independence Day is not a Canadian holiday. Canada Day is July 1. Toronto has an all-red uniform to play on this dark holiday in the Great White North.

You can say more quickly than you think. “victory in Yorktown”MLB and New Era both surrendered. Blue Jays fans and followers received a new cap this week. The improved ball cap does not feature the stars. The monuments of patriots who rose to challenge this tyrannical fashion rule should be placed in the Sports Fan Hall of Fame, or Know Your Fellow Friends on your Northern Border Gallery.
It was great to see one Canadian team, and its fans, make a difference in the lives of MLB Corporate royalty. A baseball marketing suit could be thinking about July 1, 2023 and getting the New York Yankees out of their pinstripes in favor of a crimson Uni. Let’s hope not.
