In addition, the Fightins will wear a new road hat during the 2017 season. A white feathered R logo is featured on the front representing the city of Reading. The front panel of the hat will be red while the remaining panels of the hat are blue. The low profile New Era 59/50 hat will be worn with the Fightin Phils grey road uniform.
