For all/any hat heads out there!!!
As an A's fan who grew up in the Pacific Northwest I've always taken much joy and pride in the lineage Oakland A's baseball has within the PNW. The Tacoma Tigers were an affiliate of the A's starting in 1981 and lasted for 14 seasons. Oakland greats like McGwire and Canseco passed through Tacoma before making it to Oakland. Even though Tacoma is now affiliated with the Mariners under the name Rainiers I still root and represent Tacoma for its bay area roots such as mine. I've coveted a Tacoma Tigers hat for quite sometime now and the Rainiers team store recently granted this wish however, it quickly sold out to my disappointment. Just recently though, I found out a new hat shop in Washington also made the Tacoma Tigers hat. Just ordered mine and can't wait for it to come in. I thought I would share the link to let anyone else know who could be interested.
Go A's! Bringing back memories of 2002!
