David Ortiz designed cap to debut at stores July 28

Jul '05
New York based New Era Cap Co Inc announced it will launch its next Capture the Flag 59FIFTY, designed by Major League Baseball's 2004 World Series Champion Boston Red Sox First Baseman David Ortiz. The cap will be available at select retail stores Thursday, July 28th. Ortiz is the second Major League Baseball player to design a New Era 59FIFTY, he joins Roger Clemons in this honor.

The Red Sox's Big Papi is a big hit on the field whether he's guarding first base or knocking balls out the park. Ortiz's got a big smile, makes big gestures and has joined the big league of celebrity designers who have worked with New Era to design their own 59FIFTYs. Ortiz is a loyalist with style, and his design is a homerun. The 59FIFTY is made of a black satin front and black linen mid and rear panels.

A tribute through and through, Ortiz's cap highlights three of the most important things to him today, his mother, his country and his career - the front embroidery calls out his championship team, the Boston Red Sox in red embroidery, and his team number "34" in a tonal black, while on the front lower left-wear side in a tonal embroidery is a silhouette of Ortiz in his signature homerun celebration stance - two fingers pointing to heaven.

On the right-wear side of the cap you can find his home country's, the Dominican Republic, crest with "DR" inscribed beneath it; while on the rear is a tribute to his mother, his Angel, and on the under visor is an embroidered replica of Ortiz's signature. The cap also features a check-patterned shirting material lining and as with all Capture the Flag collectors pieces, the cap will be featured in its own signature presentation box.
