11 Major League Baseball teams have rainbow hats for LGBT Pride games

New, 8 comments

Hats are the most popular giveaways for the teams.

The Pirates Pride game is July 8 vs. the Phillies.

Rainbow-colored hats are the giveaway of choice for 11 Major League Baseball teams that have LGBT Pride games this season.

The Blue Jays, Braves, Cubs, Diamondbacks, Orioles, Padres, Pirates, Rays, Reds, Marlins and Twins are all giving Pride hats to people who buy a ticket to their game. This is the first year the Reds are having a Pride night.

The Brewers, Cardinals and Dodgers have shirts with a rainbow theme, the Athletics and Mariners have wearable Pride flags and the Giants have a backpack. The other seven teams with Pride nights have not specified what, if any, their giveaway will be.

In a design sense, my favorite hats are the Blue Jays, Pirates and Reds. While adding rainbow colors can be an LGBT cliche, when married with something traditional like baseball caps, they add a fresh look to iconic logos, some that have been around more than a century.

Here is a gallery of the 11 hats (plus the shirts etc.) and we want your opinion on the one hat you would most want. (If you can’t see the poll below, click here).
