There is no way there will be a consensus among Los Angeles Dodgers fans over this.
Every season for the past several years, in keeping with tradition, Major League Baseball releases their Independence Day hats. These hats, which always incorporate the American flag in some way, are more divisive than a debate on whether Pete Rose deserves to be in the Hall of Fame.
This season will be no different, as pictures of the hat the Dodgers will use this July have been leaked, via Paul Lukas of Uni-Watch.com:
Because the image of the Dodger hat was the only one leaked, it’s unclear whether that’s the pattern and color scheme every team’s hat will have. What is clear, however, is that, like it or not, this annual tradition isn’t going anywhere.
As for the hats the Dodgers will wear on Memorial Day, which historically have incorporated a military fatigue design, they are much more subdued than last year’s version:
In other MLB fashion news, the pillbox hats which were initially reported to be the ones players would wear during the 2015 MLB All-Star Game in Cincinnati have turned out to be just regular, old, run-of-the-mill vintage-looking hats, per ESPN’s Darren Rovell:

Similar to the pillbox hats worn by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 1970s, these hats are, at the very least, just as divisive as the Independence Day hats.
