On Hi-Hat: Dave Trembley

capt.2fcf9d21c91a41eda272ea62e605e719.athletics_orioles_baseball_bab102.jpg

We’ve made plenty of note here at Uni Watch about the idiotic unfortunate flat-bill look currently being practiced by Chamberlain, Sherrill, and company. And I’m sure at some point we’ve talked about Joe Torre’s tall cap. It’s like Lincoln’s stovepipe top hat. I bet he keeps his keys and wallet in there.

So with those two distinct styles identified, exactly what is being displayed here by Orioles manager Dave Trembley? The bill is mostly flat, but not all the way. It’s certainly tall, too.

Is it a full-blown Torre? What do we call that bill? Fear of commitment? — Bryan

    It seems to me that older people perch their hats on their heads, and it should be considered a Torre if the length from the top of the ear to the bottom of the crown is an inch or more.

  • Ricko | September 6, 2008 at 8:11 am |

    For Trembley…

    “half-flat”?

  • Ricko | September 6, 2008 at 8:14 am |

    Subject of hats reminds of Lou Holtz.
    When he was on the sidelines, I always wondered if his head was really small or his hats were really big.

  • Scott | September 6, 2008 at 8:15 am |

    That’s a “back pocket” extraordinaire. The brim with the crease down the center … he’ll take ‘er off and put ‘er in his back pocket.

    Trembley: The ‘Low Gable’

  • Frank from B-more | September 6, 2008 at 9:45 am |

    What a shock to see my O’s this morning on uniwatch, since we are in the midst of our annual late season swoon. Teams should hire a designated bill bender. At least Trembley has another year to get it right (just got his extension). Have to agree about the orange tops. Make them pullovers and it would be perfect.

  • Stuby | September 6, 2008 at 9:47 am |

    I always liked the extreme bend in Bryan Harvey’s cap. Also note the Angels logo on the stirrup…

    Trembley rocks his hat “grandpa style”. It’s high as can be, and not “ghetto flat”. Just a little bit of a bend, to make it clear he’s no gangsta. The “grandpa style” hat makes it clear that he’s an old school baseball guy, who preaches fundamentals and hard-nosed play. At night, he likes to sip on Chivas, eat top-cut steak, and watch old war movies.

    I love the way Trembley rocks his hat, b/c it reminds me of my grandfather and his friends.

    RIP, Pop.

    My question is how do all MLB players not look like Torre? I bought a 5950 and the crown of the thing is huge. I have run it through several laundry cyles and worn it through a few softball games in 90+ degree heat and I still can’t break the damn thing in. I know an article was linked here about “hat surgery” but I don’t really want to take a scissors to a new $35 hat.

    The hat surgery won’t work on the new polyester 5950 caps; only the old wool ones.

    I did it to all the wool 5950’s I had and while I had some reservations at first, after the first one the difference was huge. No more “trucker cap” look and they fit like the Franchise caps.

    I don’t necessarily personally disagree, but baseball IS different from the other (major) sports in regard to coaches. 1st & 3rd base coaches are literally “on-field” personnel. Everybody on the field wears a uniform. Just because the ascetics of it bother many doesn’t necessarily mean it’s ridiculous or need to be addressed.

    Re the flat bill…I believe the “pioneers” in the current era are Tony LaRussa and especially Lou Pinella. You can look at photos of them from the 90s and their caps look like they were just lifted from the box.

  • Ricko | September 6, 2008 at 3:18 pm |

    Just caught highlights of Illinois in their “Butkus era” gear. Fun. Never saw that uni in color before, at least other than in stills.

    I think they didn’t wear to the white pants at home until Butkus was gone, tough. I dunno, maybe they did wear them his senior year. Before that was old gold…which was supposed to be close to orange, I guess.

  • MPowers1634 | September 6, 2008 at 3:19 pm |

    I am going to have to digress for a moment.

    Yesterday, I posted Nikes new velcro spat strap:
    http://www.sportsdep...

    Later during the day, some of us started commenting on whether we liked them or not, even quoting films, such as “White Men Can’t Jump”.

    The discussion prompted LarenR to make this point:

    So, Nike got tired of players taping over their swoosh. Their first solution was to put the logo on the toe (I don’t have time to find a pic…I’m sure Sir Powers can hook us up), and now they’ve said, “wait a second, lets just put a giant swoosh on the tape (well, tape-substitute).”

    Interestingly enough, LI Phil posted this pic as evidence:
    http://images.shoppi...

    Which eventually prompted LarenR to post a pic of the Nike Air Zoom Apocalypse 4, one of my top 3 fave cleats of all-time:
    http://www.asadviser...

    LI Phil later returned with this photo:
    http://dsp.imageg.ne...

    He unwittingly posted pics of the same Shoe albeit, one is the turf version, and the other is the molded “shark version”.

    Love them or hate them (or, like me, fall somewhere in the middle), there is no denying that the folks in Nikeland are marketing geniuses!

    I went to the local high school’s Pep Rally with my wife and daughters last night and then out to dinner with my wife, so unfortunately I had to rearrange my priorities and NOT CHECK IN ON UW!

    Here it is:

    Not only did Nike realize that their football athletes were taping over their logo in the name of structural integrity, because of the disturbing trend of baseball players wearing their pants like pajamas, their rear justified logos were being obscured as well.

    So this trend is not one sport specific!

    Within this thread on Niketalk, there are tow desighnerd from Easton who complain about the difficulties in altering their mindsets with this!
    http://niketalk.yuku...

    Like so:
    http://i258.photobuc...

    By the way, check out Jason Taylor’s Air Jordan III Player Exclusive TD Plate cleats from the other night:
    http://static.nfl.co...

    And so. (turns out I did have time for a quick search…)

    and cetera

    actually…this one looks frikkin schweet

    It is at least in the flow of the pattern… which is better than most Nike swooshes.

    “Baby shit brown”…sure to be a hit in next year’s edition of Crayola’s 64-color box. :)

    Also, I couldn’t disagree more on the thought of the Orioles and orange tops. Orange is wonderful as an accent color…and when used in a tempered way (think University of Texas’ burnt orange) as a main color…but otherwise it is way too loud for my taste. To each his/her own, though…I guess.

    I have to agree that Trembley definitely looks old school, because when I am around my dad and his friends (50s-60s) they all sport the same look on their caps.
    Orange is an odd color to hope for, but back when the O’s were good, orange was their alternate uni.

    To the guys looking to break in a 5950… Wear it in the shower. Turn it inside out, put it on that way in the shower. Do the switch from wearing it inside out, to regular a few times. Work that section of the hat that sits “high”, and when you’re done…let it sit out. Wear it wet, if you can. The hat will come out looking good. Once it dries, if you want, you can cut out the “plastic stuff” on the inside. If you wear it in the shower AGAIN, it’ll really break in. Just be careful with the scissors, you don’t want to cut through it. Feel free to bend the brim, how you like it, in the shower as well.

    I’ve done this for a bunch of 5950’s, and it works great. The fabric doesn’t run, and it shouldn’t shrink. To be safe though, if you are an “in between” size, err to the bigger one.

    That’s not a bad combo, except for the yellow helmet. My favorite is green helmet/green jersey(w/ black shoulders)/black pants. But usually they wear the green pants with that jersey.

    I hate to defend OKC, but that baby-poo color is actually ESPN’s standard NBA identity color. It can be found on any NBA page in the header image and elsewhere. I imagine they’re using it temporarily for OKC either because they don’t yet have the correct color specs, or the actual colors crash their website.

    Those look great! I’ve never seen helmet/pants stripes like that. Usually it’s either single or triple striped… the double stripe looks kinda cool.[/quote]

    Up until a few years ago Arizona had the double stripe. White helmets with a red stripe on one side and blue stripe on the other side. Same on the pants.

    [quote comment=”288141″]My question is how do all MLB players not look like Torre? I bought a 5950 and the crown of the thing is huge. I have run it through several laundry cyles and worn it through a few softball games in 90+ degree heat and I still can’t break the damn thing in. I know an article was linked here about “hat surgery” but I don’t really want to take a scissors to a new $35 hat.[/quote]

    I’m not sure if all players wear 5950’s. I think some or most of the players wear 4940’s, which are lower crowned (or so I have been lead to believe).

    dude-

    get your facts straight. in YEARS of watching MLB I have NEVER seen a player in a cheap -ss 4940 NewEra cap.
    please. they wear 5950s. except for that loser cheater Kenny Rogers who tried to pass off his detroit tigers BP cap as a game cap.

    their 5950s shrink (now less than before) with wear, they know how to break them in and wear them properly.
    or the HGH has made their heads grow to fit the higher crown.
    but still – no 4940s in games.

    You know, Oregon State looked good today but I kinda feel like they need a little more black on the away uniform. Or better yet go back to this and this.

    True…no 4940s in games but the 5950s really do not shrink like old ones did. What most people don’t realize is that New Era makes a “low crown” version of the 5950s that are IMPOSSIBLE to find anywhere but from New Era directly.

    I had the misfortune of buying one of the new 5950s last season and tried to do the “surgery” like I had for many years prior and it came out HORRIBLE. Once I found out about the low crown 5950s I got myself one…never had to the “surgery”…it was perfect from the moment I got it. Here’s a link to a low crown directly from New Era

    OKC, for all the BS you went through to pry that team from Seattle, why would make yourselves look like even bigger asses with that garbage?

    Should’ve called them the “bottom feeders” because that’s where they’ll be for a long time.

    I have nothing against OKC the city, but Clay Bennett is the worst thing to happen to the nba since the Pistons played in Ft. Wayne.

    I know an article was linked here about “hat surgery” but I don’t really want to take a scissors to a new $35 hat.

    Need to define terms here. The new synthetic-fabric 5950s do not shrink like the old wool ones. So you have to buy one that fits your head on day one without counting on any “break-in” routine to shrink it to your head.

    That’s a separate issue from removing the stiff backing of buckram-and-plastic-wire that makes the front of a 5950 stand up like a billboard. That’s easy to remove from the new synthetic 5950s, if you do it carefully. Once you take that stiff backing off, the whole cap is soft and comfy. Eliminates the stovepipe effect, except for those who perch their caps two inches above their ears like they’re dressing for the Old Country Buffet. If you wear your cap that high on your head, there’s no helping you. But for everyone else, it’s worth the elbow grease to take the backing out.

    (Also, the reason you should never take a scissors to a $35 cap is that you should never pay $35 for a 5950. It’s really not that hard to find 5950s for under $25.)
