Fightin Phils caps for 2017

The Reading Fightin Phils have announced three new caps their players and coaches will wear for the 2017 season. The hats represent the history of America’s Classic Ballpark.

The first hat is a red cap featuring the F-Fist logo with a white button. The hat will pay homage to the 1950’s Philadelphia Phillies Whiz Kids. The hat will be worn during home games with their pinstripe jersey. The hat is made from polyester wool and is low profile 59/50 from New Era.

In addition, the Fightins will wear a new road hat during the 2017 season. A white feathered R logo is featured on the front representing the city of Reading. The front panel of the hat will be red while the remaining panels of the hat are blue. The low profile New Era 59/50 hat will be worn with the Fightin Phils grey road uniform.

Announced earlier this offseason was the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor Batting Practice Cap. The Crazy Hot Dog Vendor Batting Practice Cap will be worn by Fightin Phils players and coaches during batting practice sessions. The Crazy Hot Dog Vendor has been a fan favorite at America’s Classic Ballpark for more than 13 years. It’s a grey hat with the Crazy Hot Dog Vendor on the front. The hat is made with a new state-of-the-art performance diamond patterned fabric and is infused with the latest NE TECH materials to keep players cool and comfortable on the baseball field.

Fans can purchase the hats by going online to or by visiting the team store at FirstEnergy Stadium.
