Red Sox Watermelon Scratch And Sniff Hats
MLB

I Don't Care If This Is For Kids, It's Still 100% Wrong. Someone Should Be Fired For This.

I'm a huge Red Sox fan, and normally I'm a big fan of most of the team apparel that they offer. Generally, it's good stuff, even if it's a bit overpriced. But now, my faith in their marketing team has been shaken. I know it's for kids, but a watermelon scratch and sniff pink hat?

I'm wondering how someone could come up with an idea this bad. Did they have a contest to see who could come up with the worst hat ever? Did they want something to help make it look like regular pink hats aren't that bad? At least those go to a good cause.

This is just embarrassing. Make them go away, Red Sox. Please, make it stop.

Well, thats not a good bargain, one little rain shower washes the scratch and sniff away... all your left with is a plain ol' fruity looking hat...

I agree, I do not like my sports apparel to be any thing other that the colors that my teams wear and all three of my teams are black and gold. I will not  buy or even let my wife and daughter wear pink to rep the Burgh. Save the pink for the Colts.

Fruit is good. Baseball caps are good. Merging the two into one product is just AWFUL & WRONG.

No, it's not racist. You don't have to be black to know it, either. You know what's racist? You acting like race might have even had anything to do with these.

BTW every team has a hat like this if you look a little harder at the thread above you.
