San Francisco Giants holding fantastic hat giveaways on back-to-back days (photos)


Hat giveaways at major league games are as synonymous with an outing at the ballpark as hot dogs, Cracker Jacks and, um, adults stealing baseballs away from youngsters (here and here).

The San Francisco Giants have taken the lead out of the promotional gate with the announcement of several headwear-related giveaways during the upcoming 2014 season, highlighted by back-to-back nights of featuring fantastic hats.

On Saturday, Aug. 30, the first 20,000 fans through the gates will receive the above top hat, which appears to be a “Cat In The Hat” inspired top hat, only in the Giants colors of orange and black. The dippy hippies in San Fran are sure to love sporting this lid.

And then, saving the best for second (on this particular weekend), on Sunday, Aug. 31, the first 20,000 fans who once again show up the earliest will receive the below R2-D2 beanie, surely a must-have for any “Star Wars” nut.


Far out. For those Giants fans who aim to snatch up the dapper droid beanie, may the Force be with you. And if there’s a rainout on top hat night? “I know it is wet and the sun is not sunny, but we can have lots of good fun that is funny.” Or something.
