A Major League story in a Minor League town...

Above are a couple more vintage Minor League fitteds we have in stock. First up is the Winnipeg Goldeyes, the name derives from a relatively small freshwater fish popular in Manitoba as a delicacy when smoked. The Goldeyes were founded in 1994 and are a member of the Northern League, which is not affiliated with MLB. The Goldeyes won the championship their inaugural year but haven't been back since which just makes this hat cooler, don't ask why!

The next team is none other than the Asheville Tourists. I've always loved their makes me wanna pack up my suitcase, grab my louisville fuckin slugger and take a vacation somewhere warm!! The Tourists are a Class A team based in Asheville, NC and have been a farm team of the Colorado Rockies since 1994. In 1968, the Tourists won the Southern League championship under manager Sparky Anderson. Fun Fact: The Tourists would play a "minor" role in the movie Bull Durham starring Kevin Costner as Crash Davis. Crash would finish his baseball career as a member of the Tourists after being cut from the Durham Bulls; it was with Asheville that he would break the all-time minor league home run record.

Sizes in stock:
Goldeyes 7 1/8, 7 1/4 & 7 3/8
Tourists 7 1/4 only
