Project Cubbins: Hat 335 - Chavez Ravine Edition

Day 335 / Hat 335: Blue, baseball-style cap with white Los Angeles Dodger "LA" logo on front. Additional details include adjustable size strap and white embroidery on wearer's left that reads "'47."

Procured for the Project at Dodger Stadium where LA is playing the Colorado Rockies where LA is currently ahead 4 to 2. (Whoops, make that 5 to 2.)

By my reckoning this is the third Dodger-related lid in this batting line up and the second in a row.

PC 334: Nacho Helmet
PC 333: Honey Bourbon Porkpie
PC 332: Star and Skull on a Stingy Brim

Q: OK, nice hat -- but what exactly is Project Cubbins, anyway?

A: One man's homage to Dr. Seuss and his second book, "The 500 Hats of Bartholemew Cubbins," which celebrated the 75th anniversary of its publication in 2013, Project Cubbins is an attempt to document the wearing of a different hat or piece of headgear every day for 500 consecutive days. No do-aheads, no banking of hats, no retroactive entries. PC started on May 27, 2013 with Hat 1
