Phillies unveil special hats for 4th of July
Once again, the Philadelphia Phillies are scheduled for a special hat later this season. A few weeks ago, Philadelphia wore camouflage hats for Armed Forces Weekend alongside Mother’s Day back in May. Yesterday, the MLB revealed their designs for unique July 4th hats for this season.
Here is the 2021 Phillies 4th of July Hat:
Every hat in the MLB follows the exact template, red caps with the city’s initials on the side. The Phillies miss out a little on the fun of having an alternate hat on the 4th of July because they already wear red hats throughout the season. The American flag inside the P on the front of the cap is always great. The PHI on the side with USA underneath is a nice touch as well. Compared to previous seasons, the design is a bit tame (but better). For reference, here the Phillies 2019 cap, which seems like 100 years ago at this point.
The design includes an American flag inside the logo in most seasons but will sometimes have a blue brim and gold trim like seen here. Not bad, but if I had my choice, it would be the 2021 season cap rather than 2019.
The Phillies are scheduled to wear these hats during the Padres that will take place over the July 4th holiday. For now, it’s best if we all just keep an eye on Jean Segura and Bryce Harper, who were both injured in last night’s 5-3 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Tonight, they will face Clayton Kershaw. Zack Wheeler will be on the mound hoping to avoid the sweep before heading north in California to play the San Francisco Giants.

Some of the designs work well like the Phillies 4th of July Hat, but look disgusting for a team like the Rockies or Padres. But recently, some of their retail hats have been brought to my attention, and all I can say is that viewer discretion is advised. […]
