The Altoona Curve (Class AA; Eastern League) may have accomplished a first in Minor League Baseball with a regular-season reversible cap featuring a team logo on one side and Al Tuna, the team’s rally mascot, on the other.
Here’s a full illustration of the cap:

When the regular home cap with the new Engineer head logo is turned inside out, a bright orange lining with large black eyes is displayed to simulate the look of popular Curve rally mascot, Al Tuna.
“These rally caps capture what the Minor League experience is all about for fans – and that’s having fun,” said Curve General Manager Rob Egan. “Like much of our fan base, the Plan B branding team we worked with on the new logos really enjoyed Al Tuna during their visit to the ballpark last summer. They suggested the possibility of a home cap with an Al Tuna rally cap lining and we were hooked. The hats took a little longer to produce because of their unique design, but we couldn’t be happier with the result and we think our fans will like what they see.”
