See where each Reds minor league affiliate ranked in 'clash of the caps'


For the last three weeks, Milb.com has been holding a contest to see which minor league team has the best hat design in the business. Fans submitted over two million votes and the verdict of the balloting is finally in. So, where did Reds minor league affiliates rank on this dubious "Clash of the Caps" list?

Leading the way at No. 27 was the Double-A Pensacola Blue Wahoos, followed by the Triple-A Louisville Bats at No. 67, the Single-A Dayton Dragons at No. 75, and the Rookie-Billings Mustangs at No. 88. It appears the Single-A Bakersfield Blaze did not crack the top 100.

Earlier this year, the Bats were actually pegged with a similar honor when a BuzzFeed editor named the franchise's hat logo as the best in minor league baseball.

For the record, the El Paso Chihuahuas, Triple-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, topped the Clash of the Caps list in their very first season of existence. Now that's pretty impressive right there.
