No Pepper Games: take off the hat, Fred.. or whoever you are

I know there were some questionable hats in the 80s, but COME OOON!

I don't recall Cincinnati ever taking the field with that particular headwear. Fred Scherman, you've been around for a long time, why resort to a mesh trucker hat? (Topps claims this is a photo of Fred Scherman from 1983, but Fred Scherman's career ended in 1977,  and this doesn't look like an old guy trying to mount a comeback. Hmm. Maybe it's Fred Schneider?)

That hat is just silly. That's one of those "5 proof-of-purchases plus $2.95 for s&h" offer in the back of a cereal box hats.

Baseball is a wonderful thing! :)


  1. He's just wearing a snapback because he knows it'll be a cool thing to wear in 2012. He was just ahead of his time.

  2. Terrible hat! LOL

    it's Bill Scherrer. He actually pitched for the Orioles very briefly

    1. Thanks, Commish! Yes, Bill Scherrer. Seems right. Got a ring with the 84 Tigers, despite his misguided cap choices.
