    Dodgers Baseball Card

    Why and for what games did the Dodgers wear this white cap?

    I know that the uniform is from 2000 because of the patch, but so far I can't find any specific information regarding the white cap.

    I believe the white hat shown in the picture was the batting practice hat of that era....2000.

    Maybe it was a cap worn on Sundays? I don't think MLB teams were wearing BP games yet in 2000. Just a guess though. I also think players grabbed whatever was close for the posed pics on older cards. Could have been a ballpark employee cap or something.

    Only reference I could find to an alternate cap is the hideous (IMO) silver-brimmed cap they wore during 1999. I will keep searching though. Home after a surgery, so I have lots of free time!

    Those patches were worn in 1999, not 2000.

    1999 was the first year MLB mandated BP caps for all teams. I would assume those were the Dodgers home BP caps. The Dodgers only have ever worn one alt cap and that was the blue and silver model.
    I see great things in baseball. It's our game - the American game.

    Yes, that's the one. Scary.

    Unequivocally, the white hat with the blue bill and button is the batting practice hat of that era, 1999-2001. As a matter of fact, I have one of these hats. Inside, there is the "Authentic" collection label; on the back of the hat is the MLB logo. As a matter of fact, the KC Royals had an almost identical hat...with "Royals" emblazoned on the front. I believe these hats were only around for a year.
