Is this the Marlins new hat?

Earlier this week we got a sneak peak at what appeared to be the Marlins' new logo -- and now a photo is circulating around the internet of the team's new hats.

 

I'm not sure how this makes it any better, that's for sure. The colors look a little different, maybe more red than orange? And it's tough to tell, but could the hat be navy instead of black? The Marlins aren't announcing the whole look until Nov. 11, but this seems to be further "proof" (as much as there is that on the internet) that the leaked image was legit.

I miss the original Tampa Bay Devil Rays logo. It was cool because it was colorful & different. Colors are nice and not just a gay symbol.

Kind of looks minor leaguish...but I bet it will grow on people . They have had he same colours for twenty years so it's time for change...I guess. Some people like change some don't.

Not saying I'd ever rock this, but if they got rid of the yellow part it wouldn't be awful.

If anyone is tempted to say "who cares, it's just a logo", consider wasting those 10 seconds doing something else because aesthetics are an important part of a team's identity and marketability. I agree that far too many teams have gone with boring navy and black color schemes and I also agree that this logo will be polarizing where as some may think it looks like a gas station logo, it does have a very retro look that will appeal to many. In the Marlins case, the aqua color scheme was unique and appropriate for a Florida team even though they marginalized the aqua in favor of black in recent years but a change is understandable given the new park, name change, etc. However, my biggest problems with current MLB uniforms are the D-Backs desire to look like the Astros and a team called the Blue Jays who wear all black uniforms, whose hat logo is sort of a T/J hybrid letter which has perplexed me for years, but kudos to TB & KC for having the balls to wear powder blue. Somebody's gotta try to stand out.

Wow. If the Marlins go with this hat & logo they are fast on track to being one of those teams that changes their logo every few years, because this logo will be polarizing.

There needs to be a term for this: "logo identity crisis." And its uncalled for, because the Marlins current logo and colors are good, and they have a WS victory tied to that image. Why change?

The example that comes to mind of an MLB team with logo identity crisis is the Angels. Anyone remember the caps they used to have in the 80s with the big A with a halo over it? I used to wear that cap every day when I was a kid, and when they changed it I was upset. Now they're on their 10th logo and can't even come to terms with what to name the team. California, Anaheim, or Los Angelas, or Los Angelas Angels of Anaheim?

Florida could be next. The Miami Marlins of Florida.
