In late January, this would have merited a story. With the advent of spring training, the news that MLB is moving from all-wool caps to new polyester blend caps doesn't seem to merit coverage. Sure, the new caps will wick away sweat from a player's face like a squeegee. But why is this a story?
Maybe it's in the way the office of our fearless and clueless commissioner Bud Selig describes the move (according to SI.com):
The change is part of commissioner Bud Selig's focus on boosting player performance, a Major League Baseball official said, and follows a general trend toward moisture-managing "performance" materials in sports apparel.
Bud Selig, interested in "boosting player performance." George Mitchell and Barry Bonds, take note.
