In a world where orange hats are really hit or miss, this classic Astros lid would qualify as a hit. It's loud color is offset by the simplicity of the logo, and even though I don't own one article of orange clothing, I can't help but think I would look pretty sharp sporting this timeless cap- who wouldn't?
I gotta give it to the Astros- in the 9 week history of MLU's Hat of the Week, they've been associated with one-third of the lids featured. They've got some style down there in Houston- although, don't look for their current Big League hat to be our Sunday feature anytime soon.
Why do so many teams ditch such classic looks?
