Paul Lukas of UniWatch had a nice post detailing the new Spring Training Hats:

Reds Road:

That Road hat is horrendous, but I have an all white alternate hat with Mr. Redlegs on it and like it a lot.

Big improvement over the old ones, that's for sure. That said, I really like the home hats. I wish they would copy the Orioles style like this:

With a red bill? and a black back of the hat?

I'd rather go back to the dark navy blue in the color scheme instead of black.

Just me though, I'm sure

I would much rather have the running man from the '80s-'90s than Mr. Redlegs. Also, I thought we were done with black road caps. I don't like either one of them.

I personally wear the current road cap, because I do like the black bill. I've never bought a spring training cap because they are always ugly.

Yeah, I'm waiting and hoping for that as well.

I'd also like to see grey instead of the black.

What I don't like and can't understand why so many love them, are those all-red caps. With or without Mr. Redlegs.

What? The all red cap with the wishbone C is the only Reds cap in my opinion

I would like to see a grey cap with a red bill instead of the black. I'm with you there

Me too, would love to see them go back to some grey in caps and even unis. But, most importantly, I am ready to see spring training in any kind of cap at this point (as long as not dunce caps).

Also from Paul Lukas: The Reds will be changing their shade of Red this season. Here's a comparison of the massive differences:

In all seriousness, the new one is slightly better.

I'm assuming this is Spring Taining only? But I will need to look for that home cap.:thumbup:

I dig the new spring training hats. I already have a Mr. Redlegs hat though. But I'm a huge hat nerd with 30 plus in my collection right now, so the more the merrier for me:)
