Atlanta Braves Unveil New Batting Practice Hat

Posted: Updated:

The Atlanta Braves opted to go traditional rather than controversial with their new batting practice cap logo.

The new hat will feature the familiar "A" in neoclassic Atlanta Braves script.

It had been rumored that the team would bring back the image of the "screaming savage", which the team used as a logo from 1967 through 1989. Braves team president John Schuerholz told MLB.com that the caricature of the Native American was one of five proposed designs.

"We had a variety of choices that we looked at, some more thoroughly than others," Schuerholz told MLB.com. "But at the end, we like the (classic "A"). The fact that one person somewhere offered his personal opinion about one of our options, that was important to him."
