According to more than one local
source, the Rangers have decided not to go forward with the two-toned helmets
they introduced this off-season. The club will wear blue helmets with the blue
jerseys, and red helmets with the red jerseys. One idea behind the two-toned
hat was that the club could travel with just one helmet on a road trip during
which it might wear blue some nights and red other nights. But logistics are
taking a back seat to aesthetics, I’m happy to say.
I never commented on the look of the
new helmet because the two players I asked about it both liked it. A lot. (Or
at least that’s what they said.)
So I figured it might grow on me.
I think it works for the Mets,
because black and a dark shade of blue complement each other pretty well. I
liked the concept here until I saw the helmet – red plus blue just didn’t
Credit to the organization for
making the change.
