The results of Minor League Baseball’s “Clash of the Caps” contest were revealed today, and five Midwest League teams finished in the top 25.
The Quad Cities River Bandits finished fourth overall and first among Midwest League teams. The three teams with more votes than the River Bandits were (from first to third) the El Paso Chihuahuas, the Richmond Flying Squirrels and the Albuquerque Isotopes. El Paso and Albuquerque are in the Pacific Coast League; Richmond is in the Eastern League.
One other Midwest League team finished in the top 10 — the Fort Wayne TinCaps (No. 8). The Burlington Bees finished 16th, the West Michigan Whitecaps finished 20th, and the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers finished 23rd.
According to MiLB.com, the Clash of the Caps contest “was designed to create random matchups that allow fans to vote continously and have the opportunity to see a variety of the 160 caps and logos from around the minors. Every team was represented in a head-to-head voting format with either their main uniform cap or one the team wished to enter into the competition.”
