Red-orange hats to make comeback

MIAMI — It’s not exactly a throwback fashion statement, but the Marlins will be sporting a slightly more colorful look next season.

The Marlins intend to wear their red-orange caps more in '14.

The Marlins intend to wear their red-orange caps more in ’14.

The “red-orange” hats will be making a comeback.

Marlins president David Samson noted that the team plans to wear the brighter hat more in 2014. Since rebranding as the Miami Marlins in 2012, the team has had the “red-orange” hats, but they were worn only sparingly in the first season at Marlins Park.

In 2013, the colorful caps were barely seen. The primary hat has been black with the “M” logo.

The Marlins call the color “red-orange” because it is intended to be shaded darker than a traditional shade of orange.

Even though the team has almost exclusively worn black caps the past two seasons, the red-orange caps have been the club’s best sellers — especially among younger fans.

The Marlins have a red-orange jersey that they wear primarily on day games. But during the second half of ’13, they brought out the jersey more often for night games.

The team mainly wears white, black and red-orange jerseys at home. On the road, they go mostly with black and red-orange over gray.
