There was a hint of this in last year's World Series, with the emergence of Cardinals hurler Anthony Reyes, who irons his hat to achieve this effect.
Which is fantastic, if you're looking for aiming for this kind of look:
Seriously, can you imagine Dave Stewart trying his patented "death stare" from under one of those? Bob Gibson would throw at his own head before sporting a look like this in public.
While it doesn't appear that he goes to quite the same lengths as Reyes, don't you wish that Vernon Wells or somebody would put a bend in that thing? Maybe Arnsberg could do it on his next mound visit.
The Baseball Gods seem to be doing their part to combat this fashion nightmare, as Reyes is currently 0-10 and was recently dispatched to the minors. Hopefully Zagurski and Litsch will see the light before they're back riding buses. If a top star adopts this look, it will spread like wildfire, and that could leave the future of Major League Baseball looking like this:
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
